Wimbledon Star Forced To Leave Court After Suffering Knee Injury

Wimbledon Star Forced To Leave Court After Suffering Knee Injury”

The women's tour said Mattek-Sands had suffered an "acute knee injury" and had been taken to hospital.

The American, who is ranked 103 in the world, suffered a freak right knee injury after facing a horrific fall on the court during the third set of her second-round match against Sorana Cirstea. "I said, I am here, you are strong, you can do this". "These painkillers are not working", she reportedly said.

"The first response to Court 17 was within one minute, by a qualified ambulance technician", they said in a statement. I don't know how to describe it.

American Bethanie Mattek-Sands was taking on Romania's Sorana Cirstea in a second-round singles match when Mattek-Sands crumpled to the grass while trying to return a volley.

"I was anxious about, maybe, our safety, to be honest", Riske said.

The Sun reported Mattek-Sands' comments as she was taken off the field.

Bill Cosby Accuser to Resume Testimony in Sex Assault Trial
During one exchange, Agrusa suggested that Constand once enjoyed a romantic dinner at Cosby's home before the alleged assault. Cosby does not plan to testify, meaning the trial's outcome will likely hinge on whether jurors believe Constand's testimony.

She is also a Olympic gold medalist in mixed doubles following her glory at the Rio Olympics. There was hip surgery less than a week after her wedding in late 2008, a torn shoulder in 2011, a broken right big toe in 2012. You should look at the video and time how long it took.

Still clearly in pain, the 32-year-old continued to scream out: "It hurts, it hurts so much", as she was taken away on a stretcher. She was left screaming for help and in severe pain on the ground, with the position of the knee-cap suggestive of a patellar tendon rupture.

Immediately following the series of events, Mattek-Sands' friends and WTA colleagues began expressing their support on social media.

"I called for help, but no-one was coming".

The harrowing incident occurred on Court 17 on Thursday. I wished I could have done more.
