Can you remember any players who had surgeries and how did it affect their careers?
I know one - Mauresmo and it didn't finish well.:sad:

(I am writing as Aga will have a surgery because of her serious hand injury) :secret:

Kim had wrist surgery in 2004. ( to repair torn tendon and remove cyst in left wrist)

She first came back in Hasselt and re-injured herself, but after a new time off, she had the best year of her carreer (the first one :p) winning first Indian Wells & Miami back to back and then had an amazing american summer winning Stanford (d. V.Williams in final), Los Angeles, Toronto (d. Henin in final), US Open, Luxembourg and Hasselt !

Maria seems to have come back strong after her injury, but the jury is still out on this one. We'll see how she does once she plays a full season.

Other players like Haas (I know he's a guy, but oh well...) keep on struggling with the same injuries over and over again and need to have several surgeries, but with only a short period of time where everything is OK, before it's re-injured.

Justine had a knee and eyes surgeries during her retirement (I really think that's why she actually retired, but we will never know the truth), we will see if her knee healed completely by next January.

She was never the same after her surgery. Just slower all around :(

Steffi Graf was the queen of surgeries 2 knee surgeries being the most serious, she also had various other ones to remove bone fragments from her wrist and foot and also had a bone spur at the base of her spine which she chose not to have an operation on this however led to her having a pretty bad back and at times she couldn't even get out of bed to practise due to serious back spasms. I don't know exactly how many surgeries Graf had over her career but I'd imagine it was over a dozen.

Venus in 2006 may have had left wrist surgery, I know she when she came back denied it, but not sure if she admitted to it.

Paola Suárez got a hip surgery and never really recovered from it :sobbing: She did play doubles up until her retirement, but that was the end of her singles career.

Not women's tennis, but Guillermo Cañas had hand surgery two times and came back in a better shape than ever both times.

I still have an interview from 2005 where she says that during her SFs doubles match in RG 05 she felt something 'clicked' in her hip, managed to finish the match, called a trainer and that man told her that it was 'nothing'. Then she played and won the doubles final and after the match, the same trainer told her that she had to have her hip operated ASAP! He just did that so that she could play her doubles final and defend the title for the 4th time.

Li Na - knee surgery once for sure but I think twice. Has had a big effect on her career because she has missed a lot of time due to it.

Peng Shuai - had heart surgery when she was a child.
