Kvi­tova pos­i­tive health re­port

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - Sport -

Pe­tra Kvi­tova is mak­ing good progress in her re­cov­ery from ca­reerthreat­en­ing hand in­juries.

The two-time Wim­ble­don cham­pion was at­tacked in her home by an in­truder last month and suf­fered dam­age to ten­dons and nerves in her dom­i­nant left hand.

Ac­com­pa­nied by a pic­ture of her smil­ing in a cof­fee shop, Kvi­tova posted on In­sta­gram: “Hello ev­ery­one, I wanted to let you know a lit­tle bit of good news.

“I fi­nally had all the stitches re­moved from my hand this week, which

“I’m work­ing very hard on my re­hab and stay­ing pos­i­tive”

means it is heal­ing well af­ter the op­er­a­tion.

“I am happy it is just me and my hand now. I’m work­ing very hard on my re­hab and stay­ing pos­i­tive as al­ways.”

Kvi­tova, who has reached the semi-fi­nals of the Aus­tralian Open and French Open but only the quar­ter-fi­nals at the US Open, needed surgery last­ing nearly four hours fol­low­ing the at­tack at her apart­ment in the Czech town of Proste­jov on De­cem­ber 20.

The pop­u­lar 26-year-old, who took home a bronze medal at the Rio Olympics last sum­mer, was told by her sur­geon she would not be able to hold a racket for three months af­ter the op­er­a­tion, with a re­turn to the court es­ti­mated an­other three months af­ter that.
