Mary has a torn ligament

Pierce career on the line after fall
http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/storypage.aspx?StoryId=54462

LINZ, Austria (AFP) - The career of top French tennis player Mary Pierce is on the line as she faces knee surgery following a heavy fall at the WTA Linz tournament.

The 31-year-old former Australian and French Open champion fell heavily after her left knee gave way while playing Russia's Vera Zvonareva in a second round match on Thursday.

World number 29 Pierce was leading 6-4, 6-6 and had had three match points in the previous game before collapsing in the tiebreak. She cried out in pain and was shortly afterwards taken off court on a stretcher.

A spokeswoman for Linz General Hospital confirmed Pierce had come to the hospital around midnight to undergo exams, including X-rays.

Doctors found she had torn the front cruciate ligament on her left knee and recommended she be operated on but she has since left the hospital, perhaps to have surgery in France.

French radio stations were speculating on the possible end of Pierce's career early Friday.

Re: Mary has a torn ligament

I was hoping for a sprain or badly sprain. Torn liagaments is worst possible news. I feel really bad for Pierce and all Pierce fans cause this is obviously devestating news. I think she's done. I hope she makes a full recovery and is healthy and happy. Whether or not she plays tennis again is COMPLETELY secondary. I only watched that video once and that scream is so hard to get out of my mind. I am not a Pierce fan, but that scream brings tears to my eyes. I don't want to see anyone endure the kind of pain that Pierce was forced to endure ever.
