At 9th game, at 15 all, Mi-Ra saw Anne is running to the net, so Mi-Ra send a lob over Anne, Anne ran down the ball and send back the ball even without turning, Mi-Ra hit the ball using volley, then Anne was too hurried to the court then fell down with screaming. She couldn't get up for a while. Mi-Ra crossed the net and took care of Anne. Anne was carried by some staff and went to a hospital. According to a doctor in the site said Anne twisted her knee, and need to get examined for details.
Hopefully, she recovers soon.

Good lord!!! Sorry to hear this news!!! Anne was just beginning to raise the level of her game, and become a serious British player. Really nice girl. Gave a bunch of us an autograph, last year at USopen,even after she had just lost to Maureen Drake in the final round of qualies.Hope it's not too career threating, and she'll be back soon.Well wishes!!!
