WIMBLEDON, England — Victoria Azarenka, the world’s second-ranked women’s player, has “no structural damage” after her painful slip at Wimbledon last week, according to her coach Sam Sumyk.
Azarenka shrieked in pain and then sobbed on court after she slipped early in her first-round match at the All England Club against Maria Joao Koehler.
Although she was treated on court and had her right knee wrapped, she managed to win 6-1, 6-2 but then withdrew from Wimbledon before her second-round match against Flavia Pennetta.
It is unclear when Azarenka will return to the circuit. Sumyk said in an e-mail message on Tuesday that Azarenka had fluid and “a strain” in both her right knee and hip.
“Nothing too serious,” Sumyk said. “Hopefully 10 days of complete rest will do.”
Good news. So we may expect some warm-up before USO?
Yay which means she can possibly get one tune up tournament before USO.
Ah after this wild Wimbledon , everyone will be so fired up to the last slam of the year. Oh well.
What a nightmare at Wimbledon
If the 10 day timeline is correct, I can't see any reason she will withdraw from Carlsbad which starts on the 29th July (Vika won't actually play until a couple of days after this because she has a bye).
