:sad:Apparently she's torn two ligaments in her ankle after injuring herself against Razzano. One is a partial tear, and the other is a full tear (again, apparently) according to Sam Sumyk, her coach.

How long do you reckon she'll be out for?

I had a very similar injury a couple years ago. I was casted for 2 1/2 weeks, and took about a month after that before I could start running on it again. Vera's a top conditioned athlete though and will have an accelerated healing time. I'm a physical therapist, and I say it will be about 5-6 weeks at the minimum before we see her attempt to play. Rome and Madrid are out of the question, and probably Roland Garros.

i would say closer to 8 weeks + because you don't want to risk re-injury by coming back too soon
however it all depends on how her rehab goes, and how good her ligaments were in the first place

You had a full tear of a ligament in your ankle?

There's 3 main ligaments to the outside of the ankle. I had a full tear of the frontal most ligament, and a partial tear of the middle ligament, plus a small bone chip off the back of the ankle bone. I was swollen from my toes to about 5 inches up my calf. I hurt it on a Friday, and couldn't weight bear on it until Wednesday due to the amount of pain. They put me in a walking cast for 2 1/2 weeks, then I did my own physio with some help from my colleagues for the next 2 months. The most difficult thing to do was to get the push-off strength back in my foot, and lateral movement was trouble for 3 months. I had a residual limp for 4 months and had to wear a brace at all times. I still have some problems with it, but they are considerably less

Vera is probably going to have intense physio on it. The guidelines for a tears vary a bit but general is about 6-8 weeks before any sort of competition is attempted. Vera is going to have a lot of problems with lateral movement when she starts to play again. I think a realistic goal for her would be around Wimbledon. She definitely doesn't want to come back early from this, and unfortunatly she is always going to have instability issues with her ankle

Well, that's my worst fears confirmed. Really horrible tragic news. The biggest bummer of the whole tennis season for sure. Vera really was looking like she was going to get to the world number 1 position in much the same way as it was pretty obvious last fall that Dinara was probably going to be number one by around about now. I feel very sorry for her.

Obviously the rest of the clay season and RG are out. Wimbledon I would say is doubtful. But the worst thing is that I somehow suspect it will take several months of playing again to get back to the kind of form that Vera has shown the last 7 months, if indeed she ever does which I wouldn't consider a certainty at all. She might never have another chance of winning a Grand Slam as good as the one it looked like she was going to get at RG this year. So unfortunate. I really wish her the very best recuperating. :awww:

See you in 2010, sweetie, and I hope you win OZ.

Yes, that's more like it. And as ChrisCHorse said, it took Vera so long to become the player she currently is, I suspect she might never reach this level of play again. This is the worst injury she could ever get. It takes time to heal and if she comes back even a few weeks too early, she might re-injure it regularly and destroy her ankle.

Yeh the rankings are pretty crazy but Veras record in the slams and vs the top players is what I think may let her down. Thats not to say she couldnt have made it to number 3, but I couldnt see her staying up there long.

This injury got me thinking about what happened to Lina K. :sad:

Bepa needs to make sure that her doctor knows what he/she is doing!The injury didn't seem that bad. A few strained ligaments in her left ankle.

Then why was Lina Krasnoroutskaya still in a Russian hospital four months after rolling her ankle in a first-round match at the Australian Open?

Why was she laid up at her home for another six weeks with excruciating pain in her heel and knee?

These were questions that kept Krasnoroutskaya awake at nights.

"It was an unbelievable story, like a bad dream," she said.

A doctor in Latvia initially treated Krasnoroutskaya for strained ligaments by injecting painkillers every day for 10 days into her left heel. The injections weakened the bones. When she tried to run, the bones broke.

"He broke the bones," she said.

She returned to her hometown of Obninsk, Russia and was seen by more doctors -"eight to 10," she said. They didn't have much better news.

Sam, how is Vera?
For now is the unknown, she injured her ankle, a ligament has been affected, here we are pending the results of examinations made in Russia. At best, I believe we will match at Roland Garros, but it can also be dead. Anyway, do not take risks. This is not the time but I want to say that there was never time to get hurt. After I am neither fatalistic or resigned, it was already known that. So already you just think about rehabilitation, and modify our schedule when we had planned to play Stuttgart, Rome, Madrid.

Former U.S. Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova will lead the Russian team against Italy in the Fed Cup semifinals next weekend.
Russia captain Shamil Tarpischev on Wednesday also selected 10th-ranked Nadia Perova, No. 23 Anna Chakvetadze, Alisa Kleybanova and rookie Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova to face the 2006 champion on clay at Castellaneta Marina, Italy.
Sixth-ranked Vera Zvonareva is recovering from an injury.
Russia routed China 5-0 and Italy beat France by the same score in the first round. Russia has won the Fed Cup four times and is looking for its third straight title. Russia has a 4-0 record against Italy, including a 4-0 win in the 2007 final.
