Cinci Women's SF Andrea P tweaks knee

Pam Shriver just reported during the Berdych/Djokovic match that Andrea Petkovic thought she had an ACL issue with her knee again, and so had an MRI. She worried (and cried all night) that she would have to give a walkover. However, turns out that it is just a tweak(Pam talked to her). So...could be an odd semifinal tonight.

Probably not threadworthy, but just a little something to watch for tonight.

Could turn out to be very important with the USO so close

tennisxTennis X News

Pam Shriver: Andrea Petkovic MRI reveals she has a slight tear in her menisucs (knee), will still play tonight.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Cinci Women's SF Andrea P tweaks knee

I want her to play. Too many retirements/withdrawals as of late. However... I also want her to play smart. Withdrawing might be the best idea for now... I just don't like the idea of this tear.

I think it is odd to play just before USO with a potential issue, but I guess she thinks she has a good chance to get to this final.

Re: Cinci Women's SF Andrea P tweaks knee

Do we have a credible source for that or just Pam Shriver?

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.

Can you imagine if Andrea does withdraw or retire and then a similar thing happens in the final?

I wonder if anyone has ever won a tournament w/3 walkovers/retirements in a row?

I get what you are saying, but Pam Shriver is a credible as it gets. The information about the tear, came from her talking to Andrea. So yes... That's the only source. Very credible, though. She wouldn't lie on camera so blatantly.

Oh there is no doubt she tweaked it a bit. It happened during her match with Petrova (around 5-5 in the first set) and she asked for the trainer immediately, but then waived the trainer off, because she felt fine. So add a MRI, a night full of tears, and you have a much better story. I can´t believe she´d play with a small tear, if there is a chance of aggravation, a week before the US Open.

Are you calling her a drama queen? Because she did say a night full of tears, which I suppose is based on her remembrance of her previous injury. Anyway, she probably is worried about it.

Let's just hope Jelena didn't hear about it and plays passive, waiting for AP's errors.
