It could if Venus served it 127 mph into your head (ouch) :retard:

Hey, I've seen a guy knocked unconscious and a woman almost have her arm fractured with a tennis ball.

At one time officials were considering having juniors wear safety goggles when playing doubles especially.

I wonder if this incident occurred during a doubles match?

A concussion? There's a tennis injury you don't see every day. Geez, this is getting as bad as the NFL.

Rita Grande was Eleni's doubles partner...
they won 3 games against Sveta/Martina.

get well soon Eleni
