The fact that she was soon undergoing an hoperation was already public, but none really knew what was the problem. Apparently she had a minor problem in Spring, but MRI didn't show the rupture until the last one done after Montreal. Flavia's going to have the surgery done on 3rd October in Barcelona, she said she needs 3 weeks of complete rest after that and 5 more of physiotherapy. She hopes to be back competing in Australia.
All the best to her :awww: :hug:

she's out of top 30 for sure, maybe out of top 50 so she will be unseeded for sure, but it doesn't matter much as long as she can come back healthy

She deserves a GS SF in her career

Not always a bad thing to take time out off from the year to year grind. If she is still motivated, she could still play another 2-3 years. Good time to experiment with other parts of her body to strengthen, maybe try new diets, etc...

Ciao Amici,

come ormai sapete tutti, questo maledetto polso è tornato a mettermi i bastoni tra le ruote.
Ho dovuto rinunciare ad altri tornei e, a questo punto, ho deciso di risolvere il problema una volta per tutte: molto presto mi sottoporrò ad un piccolo intervento e tornerò presto a giocare!!!


Cari amici,

ormai la notizia era di dominio pubblico ed è per questo motivo che avevo deciso di comunicarvela ufficialmente. Ci tengo a ringraziarvi per tutti i messaggi di affetto, sostegno e comprensione che mi avete inviato tramite blog, sito ufficiale, twitter, facebook e sms, per me è molto difficile riuscire a rispondere a tutti ma è importante per me il vostro appoggio e sono felice che comprendiate la mia scelta; vi assicuro che è la migliore possibile e che dopo questo piccolo intervento tutto tornerà come prima, anzi meglio!!!!!


from her official site and blog :awww:

for italian speakers only, sorry

I'm glad she is resolving this wrist problem.

A wrist problem? :oh:

And yet we all thought she only used her mouth... :devil:

A good decision to not rupture it more. Wrist is one of the most worst injuries you can have.

I really hope she can have a full season with no injuries again next year, she's been playing with them a lot instead of resting.

Dunno why the surgery is not a little earlier though? Time schedule seems a little tight for Australia...

if she's back for the USO she will be out of top 60 in singles and of top 40 in doubles :sobbing: it's gonna be a long way back
