BEIJING -- World No. 23 Chinese Jie Zheng is expected to miss the rest of the 2010 season because of a left wrist injury that will require surgery.

The Australian Open semifinalist will have the surgery performed in the United States and will be sidelined for three-to-six months.

Zheng's injury worsened at the U.S. Open, where she lost to former world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic in the second round. The Chinese star did, however, manage to reach the doubles semifinals in New York.
