The suffering of the former Wimbledon finalist does not end. Sabine Lisická broke her cruciate ligament at the tournament in Linz and is after the operation. The experienced 31-year-old German woman has another long way to go before she can return, because she has already experienced a lot of health problems.
Former world twelve Lisická seriously injured her knee during a doubles match on Monday. Until she returned to the courts in early September in Ostrava, she did not play for a year due to mononucleosis.
“Unfortunately, I have a torn anterior cruciate ligament. I’m already after the operation. It will be a very long and difficult journey back, but I have great doctors around me,” said the winner of four WTA Tour tournaments today.
