There will be no Richard Gasquet at Indian Wells or the Miami Open after the Frenchman confirmed he required an operation on his appendix.

The World No. 19 eached the semifinals of Open 13 in Marseille last month before he was ousted by compatriot Lucas Pouille.

But Gasquet will be unable to build on that promising campaign after announcing on Wednesday that he would miss the upcoming ATP 1000 events in California and Florida.

"Due to an appendicitis operation i wont be able to play @BNPPARIBASOPEN and @MiamiOpen . Hope to recover soon . Thanks for your support !" he posted on Twitter.
