Petkovic´ back not getting better. Return unknown.

German TV saying she had her back re-examined and the stress fracture in her lower back is healing very slowly/poorly and it´s unknown when she will return to the Tour.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Re: Petkovic´ back not getting better. Return unknown.

That is very worrying. Back injuries seem to be damaging, even ending, so many careers at the moment. It never used to be quite this bad. But unfortunately these days it seems players feel the need to stretch their fitness level's so far and sometimes this is what happens. Andrea has a nice game to watch, I like her and think she is an underrated player by a lot of this board too, obviously a great personality as well.

I hope this is something that can be sorted out and we will see Andrea back on the tour at some point this year, and of course the sooner the better. That said, it is best not to rush coming back where a back injury is concerned and we may just have to be patient.

Better take as long as possible and heal. Poor Andrea, hopefully she'll make it in time for Olympics.

Supporting useless players before it was cool.

when was she expecting to return?I mean a fracture is a serious injury,i'd be surprised if it took less than 3 months to heal.

Another great player, another freaking lower back injury.

I really hope that she doesn't try to rush into a return - I think Safina would have still been playing today if she had rested up as soon as she picked up her injury instead of playing on through it.

* 2008 * 2012 * Maria Sharapova * 2004 * 2006 *
* Ivanovic * Watson * BMS * Gavrilova * Voskoboeva * Robson * Kvitova * Mladenovic * Lisicki * FutureGoat Konjuh


Elena Baltacha. Never forgotten.

The unluckiest player on tour probably. Was about to break through in 2008 when she got that terrible injury against Chakvetadze after which she was out for 9 months and then was stuck in ITFs for another 9 months. Now she's a top 10 player on the quick rise and this happens.

Not my Petkorazzi! Back injuries suck, especially for a tennis player. She's gonna be out for awhile...

Re: Petkovic´ back not getting better. Return unknown.


Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: Petkovic´ back not getting better. Return unknown.

Back injury ruined Safina's career. And Petkovic is so fit, shows how random these bad injuries are. Could happen to any player, even the fittest.

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
