Surgeon said that for this type of injuries the biggest risks are in the weeks right after the surgery, adding that the most difficult task is to strike a balance between resting the fingers which are in the process of healing, while simultaneously subjecting them to the necessary exercise.

The healing process still continues, he expects her hand to be at about 95% in about six months from now. Fortunately, for playing tennis one does not need to have all the fingers and tendons in top-notch condition, unlike a professional pianist, for example. It's mostly about the grip.

Jana Novotna remarked that during the game one very often hits the ball, while not gripping the racquet in the optimal position (which obviously results in mishits)

Oh and BTW the surgeon concluded the interview by saying:

'I hope she wins Wimbledon'
Thanks for the report!

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

But seriously guys, the most important thing is Petra says it doesn't hurt when she hits the ball which is what we could have hoped for
It'll take a while but she's on the right track

A few days ago I wanted Petra to return to grass but French Open is fine, at least she'll have matches under her belt going into Wimbledon

What I'm getting from Petra myself is no pain during practices now, but needs to test in a match situation. I would prefer grass, but the ball bounces lower there which might not be helpful.

That's what I'm worried about, I hope she didn't rush this.
