Pierce : Déchirure des ligaments
Jean-Moise DUBOURG - vendredi 27 octobre 2006 - 11h04


Blessée au genou gauche jeudi lors de son match face à la Russe Zvonareva à Linz, la Française Mary Pierce souffre d'une déchirure des ligaments croisés antérieurs. Elle devrait être opérée prochainement.



Les examens médicaux pratiqués jeudi soir par Mary Pierce à Linz (Autriche) ont révélé une déchirure des ligaments croisés antérieurs qui devrait nécessiter une opération. Les responsables de l'hôpital autrichien qui a accueilli l'ancienne n°1 française ont indiqué que Pierce n'avait pas passé la nuit dans leur établissement. Elle est sans doute rentrée en France.

I can't translate "Déchirure des ligaments croisés antérieurs", but it seems awful. But they say she did not remain in Linz' hospital, that she might have got back to France.

she's torn her ACL which was the worst possible outcome.

How long will the athlete be out of action?

This largely depends on your surgeon or physiotherapists approach to rehabilitation. Some therapists advocate an accelerated rehabilitation programme returning the athlete to full competition within 5 months, others prefer a 9 month rehabilitation period.

Eurosport.fr reported that they talked to Xavier Moreau who told them that Mary did not feel totally devastated, but might get while she'll be told the time she'll have to wait.
He says that she could come back, as their goal was the Olympics in 2008, and still remains the same.
He says that it's a common problem within skiers, and that it could be solved within 6 months.
So well, guys, if Xav tells so, we can trust him!



Here is the French article

Mary Pierce, victime d'une déchirure des ligaments croisés antérieurs du genou gauche jeudi dans le tournoi de Linz, "peut revenir", a estimé vendredi son préparateur physique Xavier Moreau qui l'a eue au téléphone dans la matinée.

"C'est la tuile, c'est pénible mais ce n'est pas immuable , a indiqué Xavier Moreau à l'AFP. On s'était fixé comme objectif les JO de Pékin (en 2008), c'est toujours faisable. C'est à elle de décider si elle veut souffrir pour revenir. " Selon le préparateur physique, "Mary souffre d'une blessure classique chez les skieurs" qui demanderait environ six mois d'arrêt.

"Elle est toujours à Linz en ce moment (début d'après-midi vendredi) et attend qu'on lui pose une attelle , a-t-il ajouté. On va essayer de la faire revenir le plus rapidement possible en France pour qu'elle aille consulter le Dr Montalvon ", médecin de la Fédération française de tennis.

Consulter le Dr Montalvon

"C'est dommage car Mary se sentait très bien en ce moment , a continué Xavier Moreau. Elle ne semblait pas trop abattue, elle a dit qu'il y avait des choses plus graves dans la vie, mais je pense qu'elle va prendre un coup derrière la tête lorsqu'on lui annoncera la durée de son indisponibilité."

Pierce, 31 ans, a dû être évacuée sur une civière jeudi lors de son match face à la Russe Vera Zvonareva, après avoir lourdement chuté suite à un mauvais appui sur son genou gauche dans le jeu décisif du deuxième set.

Actuellement 29e mondiale, elle a passé des examens jeudi soir, dont un scanner, à l'hôpital de Linz, qui ont révélé "une déchirure des ligaments croisés antérieurs du genou gauche ", selon une porte-parole de l'établissement.

Injured Pierce out for six months



http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/42247000/jpg/_42247480_pierce_ap_203.jpg Pierce was taken off court on a stretcher in Linz

Mary Pierce faces six months out of action after collapsing with a knee injury at the Generali Ladies event in Linz, Austria, on Thursday.

The 31-year-old Frenchwoman fell heavily after her left knee gave way while playing Russia's Vera Zvonareva.
Pierce has torn the front cruciate ligament on her left knee and will require surgery.
"It's tough it's but not the end of the world," said fitness coach Xavier Moreau after fears for Pierce's career.
"It's a pity because Mary is feeling great these days.
"She's still in Linz waiting for them to fit a knee brace but we will try to get her back to France as quickly as possible to see Dr Montalvon (French tennis federation doctor).
"Mary did not seem too down, saying there were worse things in life, but I think it might be a bit of a shock when we tell her how long she will be out of tennis."

Hey, come on, don't listen to shit like this.. It's Mary's injury and Mary's rest and Mary's decision! She is strong and will be back.. It's "only" a rupture of the cruciate ligament.. That's not something you will die from. I know about two friends of mine who had this injury, too and it took 9 to 10 month BUT Mary is an athlete (trained and able to get the best rehabilitition) which will help to get fit much faster.. Don't be destroyed! SHE WILL BE BACK AND EVEN STRONGER!

« Pas le moment d’arrêter »


Mary Pierce, gravement blessée au genou à Linz, n’envisage pas de stopper sa carrière malgré les six mois d’absence qui l’attendent.


LES IMAGES, cruelles, ont défilé en boucle toute la journée d’hier, remontrant une championne étendue à terre, tordue de douleur avant de se faire évacuer sur une civière. Une mauvaise rotation du genou gauche avait terrassé la malheureuse Mary Pierce, scellant impitoyablement une saison déjà noire, gâchée par une inflammation au pied droit et des tiraillements aux adducteurs avant le plus terrible des coups durs de sa carrière. À son préparateur physique, Xavier Moreau, qui l’avait appelée dans la matinée, la Française avait résumé ses sensations d’une expression à glacer le sang : « J’ai eu l’impression que mon genou était hors de mon corps… »

Aussitôt transférée à l’hôpital de Linz, elle avait passé dans la nuit les examens nécessaires avant de rejoindre en béquilles, le genou enserré dans une attelle, une chambre d’hôtel qu’elle ne quitta pas de toute la journée d’hier. À l’autre bout du fil, la voix était lasse, mais pas totalement résignée : « C’est sûr, je n’ai jamais eu aussi mal de toute ma vie. Mais là, ça va… tant que je ne bouge pas. C’est dommage, je commençais à bien rejouer. Mais il y a des choses pires dans la vie. »


Les JO de Pékin

en vue


Fataliste, la Française ne se faisait pourtant aucune illusion sur ce qui va l’attendre en 2007. Si le diagnostic neutre de l’hôpital de Linz – déchirure des ligaments du genou – élargissait le champ des spéculations, il semble en effet que la blessure soit une rupture du ligament croisé antérieur, assortie chez les sportifs de son incompressible période d’arrêt et de rééducation : six mois. S’il n’était pas lui-même en mesure hier de cerner avec exactitude la nature du mal, faute d’être sur place, le médecin de l’équipe de France de Fed Cup, Gilles Daubinet, évoquait le scénario le plus sombre du retour aux affaires. « Rupture ou déchirure, peu importe. De toute façon, les autres ligaments morflent et le ménisque en prend un coup aussi. On va voir ce que ce cocktail de lésions va donner après trois semaines, un mois pour savoir s’il faut opérer. Mais dans la plupart des cas, on opère. À mon avis, il faudra un an pour que Mary soit totalement opérationnelle en étant de nouveau en pleine bourre. »

Un an… Et Mary Pierce a trente et un ans. Remontée des profondeurs du classement en 2005 au terme d’un terrible effort sur elle-même, elle avait su revenir au tout premier plan au cours du second semestre de l’an passé en enfilant les finales de prestige à Roland-Garros, à l’US Open et au Masters. Dans la foulée d’un tel revival, l’objectif était de se hisser en tête de la hiérarchie mondiale. Mais après les pépins lancinants du début et le funeste accident pour conclure, après une saison où elle n’aura joué que dix-sept matches, il est désormais temps de faire taire les spéculations naissantes sur une fin de carrière qui se dessinerait. Sur RMC, David, le frère, avait donné hier le la familial : « Si on peut revenir après une telle blessure ? Oui. Muster avait bien perdu ses deux genoux et il est revenu. Si Mary va continuer ? Ah oui, bien sûr ! Elle jouera jusqu’à ce que son corps n’en puisse plus… » Et allongée dans sa chambre d’hôtel à Linz en attendant son rapatriement à Paris, Mary Pierce refusait pareillement d’abdiquer : « Je sens que ce n’est pas le moment d’arrêter. Et tant que je ressens ça, je vais me donner à fond. C’est la première fois que je me blesse comme ça et je sais que c’est une grande épreuve qui s’annonce pour moi. Avec ma blessure au pied, j’ai déjà dû m’arrêter six mois. Mais là, ce n’est pas pareil. Je sais que ça va être dur, avec plusieurs mois à devoir composer avec la douleur. Mais il y a certainement une raison pour laquelle cela m’est arrivé. Ça va me rendre plus forte. »

Imbibée de foi, Mary Pierce croit depuis quelques années que le sens des choses est fixé par une puissance céleste et qu’il est vain de gémir face aux difficultés proposées par la vie. Plus prosaïquement, elle s’est fixée comme but ultime de sa carrière une présence aux Jeux Olympiques de Pékin en 2008, et rien, pas même un gros coup d’arrêt, ne semble pour l’instant pouvoir contrecarrer cette dernière envie. « Notre plan de marche fonctionne toujours jusqu’à ces JO, concluait hier Xavier Moreau. Et Mary est une grande championne. Elle en a les moyens mentaux et physiques. Et quand je l’ai eue au téléphone, elle ne m’a pas du tout donné l’impression d’être abattue. »

I found a free French-English translator online, so here is the article which appeared in French earlier in this thread:

Not the Time to Stop …
Mary Pierce, gravely hurt in the knee in Linz, does not plan to stop her career in spite of the six months of absence which wait for it.
PICTURES, cruel, marched in a continuous loop all yesterday day long, re-showing a champion spread in earth, crooked of pain before making evacuate on a litter. A poor rotation of the left knee had struck down the unhappy Mary Pierce, sealing relentlessly an already black season, spoiled by an inflammation in the right foot and of twinges in adducteurs before the most terrible of the hard blows of its career. In physical preparatory sound, Xavier Moreau, who had called it in the morning, the Frenchwoman had summed up her feelings of an expression to freeze blood: « I had the impression that my knee was out of my body … »
Immediately transferred to the hospital of Linz, it had taken necessary exams at night before joining in crutches, the knee fitted tightly round in a splint, a hotel room that she did not leave all day yesterday. In the other end of the thread, voice was weary, but not completely relinquished: « It is true, I have never felt such pain in all my life. But there, this goes as long as I do not move. It is damage, I began playing again well. But there are worse things in life.
Fatalist, the Frenchwoman deluded herself however no phantasm about what is going to wait for it in 2007. If the neutral diagnosis of the hospital of Linz – tear of the ligaments of the knee – enlarged the field of speculations, it seems in effect that the wound is a break of the previous crossed ligament, matched at the sportsmen of incompressible sound period of stopping and re-education: six months. If it was not himself in time yesterday to surround the nature of evil with accuracy, for lack of being on place, the doctor of the team of France of EDF Cup, Giles Daubinet, recalled the darkest scenario of return to business. « Break or tear, it doesn't much matter. In any case, other ligaments and the meniscus takes a blow also. They are going to see what this cocktail of lesions is going to give after three weeks, one month to know if it is necessary to operate. But in most cases, they operate. In my view, one year will be needed so that Mary is completely operational by being in full once again in full padding. »
One year and Mary Pierce is thirty-one years old. Taken back up from depths of the classification in 2005 at the end of terrible effort on herself, she had known how to come back in the very first plan in the course of the second half of last year by reaching the prestigious finals of Roland-Garros, of US Open and in Masters. In the wake of such revival, objective was to heave itself at the head of worldwide hierarchy. But after the nagging pips of the beginning and calamitous accident to conclude, after a season when she will have played only seventeen matches, it is consequently time to quiet rising speculations over the end of career which would take shape. RMC, David, the brother, had spoken for her family yesterday:
« If they can come back after such wound? Yes. Muster had lost well the two knees and he came back.
If Mary is going to go on? Ah yes, of course! She will play until her body cannot be there any more »
And lengthened in its hotel room in Linz by waiting for its repatriation in Paris, Mary Pierce refused similarly to surrender: « I have a feeling that it is not the instant to stop. And as long as I feel this, I am thoroughly going to devote myself. It is the first time that I hurt myself just like that and I know that it is a big test which is brewing for me. With my wound in the foot, I must stop for six months. But there, it is not similar. I know that this is going to be hard, with several months to have to compromise with pain. But there is indeed a reason for which it arrived at me. This is going to make me stronger. »
Soaked in creed, Mary Pierce thinks for some years that the sense of things is fixed by a celestial potency and that it is vain to wail faced with difficulties offered by life. More prosaically, it settled as ultimate purpose of its career a presence in the Olympic Games of Beijing in 2008, and nothing, not even a big blow of stopping, this last desire seems at the moment to be able to frustrate. « Our plan of step always works until this JO, concluded yesterday Xavier Moreau. And Mary is a big champion. She has the mental and physical strength to come back. And when I talked on the phone to her, in no way did I get the impression that she is finished. »

"Zvonareva's compassionate and sportsmanlike behavior -- she was the second person to reach Pierce, arriving within 20 seconds -- couldn't help but call to mind the way Maria Sharapova responded to what was perhaps this season's second-worst-looking in-match injury. In March at the NASDAQ-100, Sharapova's opponent Tatiana Golovin severely sprained her ankle in the late going of their semifinal match. Sharapova turned her back, jogged and bounced a ball on her end of the court as the weeping Golovin writhed in pain and then received treatment where she had fallen. There's no written etiquette for this kind of situation, but it seems like one where common sense and sensitivity should prevail. "

Pierce opérée mardi
Victime d'une déchirure des ligaments croisés antérieurs du genou gauche jeudi au tournoi de tennis de Linz, Mary Pierce, 31 ans, quittera la France pour rejoindre les Etats-Unis mardi où elle se fera ensuite opérer.



Le médecin de la Française lui a rendu visite au lendemain de son retour à Paris. Elle a décidé de subir une opération dans une clinique spécialisée du Colorado.

Pierce fera normalement sa rééducation outre-Atlantique, en Floride, et devrait être éloignée des courts durant six mois.

«Mary a le moral. Elle n'a pas du tout envie de s'arrêter et compte revenir sur les courts», a confié son préparateur physique Xavier Moreau après avoir rendu visite à Pierce lundi après-midi.

"Mary doesn't have the envy to stop and wants to come back on the court said Xavier Moreau her physical trainer after he saw her on monday afternoon"

at that point i don't really care about the ranking, this doesn't give us news about Mary and now Mary has a protected ranking which is good because next week she will be around 88 at the wta

i dont care about marys ranking now either, nothing can be done about it. she will be ranked about 150 or lower when she returns i guess. all i care about is her being treated and healing

Hi Mark!!!

A few friends of mine had the same injury like Mary now. After the surgery you don`t get a plaster anymore, but you have to wear a leg splint in the daytime for a few weeks. At this site is a picture of such a splint: http://www.4ortho.de/vkb.htm
At this link you can see pictures of a cruciate ligament surgery: http://www.4ortho.de/vkbbild.htm
Poor Mary!!!!!! But I am sure she will come back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My knee surgery on my Anterior Cruciate Ligament was done arthroscopically, meaning they made only four tiny incisions around the kneecap, sticking instruments inside to look around and make any necessary repairs or adjustments. They merely wrapped my knee with an elastic fabric bandage when they sent me home on 30 days' convalescent leave, telling me to stay off of it as much as possible and put ice on it regularly.
The surgery is nowhere near as traumatic as one might suspect... although I hear the sports physical therapy to restore an athlete's playing capacity can be hell.
But Mary can do it, she has the heart and the will.
Such an incredible woman--she impresses me more by the day.
Love you, angel...

Go, Mary Caroline, go!

No news about Mary! :(
I hope she is fine, one disadvantage of her decision of going to USA is that we wont get any news about her. In France media is more interested in her. But I am glad she has her family with her.

they said nice stuff about Mary, with the girls we wrote some messages on a flag for her ...some of you saw them and the commentators talked about Mary because of that.

Very soon the channel France 2 will interview Mary, it will be shown on tv maybe next sunday or in 2 weeks

Mary will be operate tomorrow in Colorado by the Doctor Vail

Yeah Mary was playing really well. Her backhand was on fire. I hope the surgery went well and she will be back on the court as soon as possible!
