Re: Elise Tamaela knocked out and put on a drip by opponent's father
This evening's update:
After the incident Elise was expected to make a statement at the local police station. "But that did not work, because she could not concentrate. She also was vomiting continuously , "said her brother. In the hospital they revealed that Elise incured a concussion, among others. That is why she had to spend a few hours in intensive care. "The doctors did not take any risks. In addition, she had severe pain and she was very frightened. Only this morning they allowed her off the ICU. "
Mihai Barbat is still on the run after he attacked the Dutch tennis player Elise Tamaela in the stands during the match of his daughter Karen yesterday. Father and daughter fled the scene after the incident and are still missing.
"They very quickly left the hotel and immediately drove to Denmark," Sander Tamaela suspects, the brother of victim Elise. "The police at least has not caught them yet. It was already known that her father was a man with difficulties," says Tamaela. "But I know that Elise has always been in good contact with Karen. A nice girl she never had problems with. All Elise said to her father was what are you doing?"
Elise Tamaela will probably be sidelined for a few weeks because of her injuries. "This week she needs absolute rest. Then, from day to day we will look how it goes," said Sander Tamaela. "She obviously had to cancel the tournament in Versmold. Although she preferred to play through. She did not want some guy to have his way with her like that."
