Andrea Petkovic Did NOT Tear Her ACL

Figured fans and non fans would be curious on an update about her injury. Have to feel for one of the more bubbly personalities on tour.

Andrea Petkovic ‏@andreapetkovic
So it's a rupture of the meniscus, back to Germany as soon as possible for an arthroscopy. Relieved it wasn't the ACL again.

Andrea Petkovic ‏@andreapetkovic
On the to-do-list: 1.Cut my hair. Short. Very short. 2.Dye it pink or blonde 3.Hold Rafa's hand until we're both healthy again.

Andrea Petkovic ‏@andreapetkovic
Just kidding. I would never do that......the Rafa thing, I mean


At least she seems like she's trying to take it all in stride. Get well soon Petkovic.

Re: Andrea Petkovic Did NOT Tear Her ACL

How long will a meniscus tear keep her out?

Re: Andrea Petkovic Did NOT Tear Her ACL

Seems like a rupture is as bad in terms of time out, no?

Hope she can get that knee healthy.

When she had that really short cut a couple years ago, I thought it looked great. People are way too invested in the long-hair look these days.

Re: Andrea Petkovic Did NOT Tear Her ACL

Hopefully the injury doesn't keep her off the courts for too long.

Re: Andrea Petkovic Did NOT Tear Her ACL

Good to hear that.

I tore my meniscus a couple of years ago and was able to run and jump again after 1-2 months. If this was her first knee injury I'd say it's not a big deal...
I hope she'll be back soon though

Re: Andrea Petkovic Did NOT Tear Her ACL

Hope she makes a speedy recovery and then is injury free for a good period of time. She's due some good luck and the tour will be better off for the return of one of its livliest and most likable characters.

Re: Andrea Petkovic Did NOT Tear Her ACL

It's not a "small injury": it's probably will take another 3-4 months...

Re: Andrea Petkovic Did NOT Tear Her ACL

Yeah, I was thinking that she and Rafa need to form a club. Good that she can still have a sense of humor about it. Hoping for a quick, and full, recovery.
