Mattek-Sands injury casts cloud over Wimbledon

WATCH: Bethanie Mattek-Sands screams for help after horrific Wimbledon injury

American tennis player Bethanie Mattek-Sands appeared to suffer a major knee injury Thursday during her second-round singles match against Sorana Cirstea at the 2017 Wimbledon Championships. When she was taken out of the field, she said, "It hurts, it hurts so much".

Details about the extent of Mattek-Sands's injury were not immediately available, with the WTA announcing only that she suffered "an acute knee injury" and had been taken to the hospital. "I tried to comfort her but I panicked".

Cirstea, who had dropped the first set 4-6 but took the second 7-6 (4), was declared the victor of the second round match. Sorana, help me.' I said, 'I am here.

The duo had split sets, with Mattek-Sands winning the opener, 6-4, before Cirstea won the second set tiebreak ahead of the unfortunate end.

And Safarova admitted it was hard to concentrate on her own game with her world No1 doubles partner in trouble.




- Bogdan Cutar (@bogdan_club) July 6, 2017Bethanie Mattek-Sands still hasn't gotten up for several minutes since falling on the court.

A club spokesperson confirmed to AAP that a courtside stretcher was available but wasn't brought out until Matek-Sands had been administered with painkillers to numb her pain.

As she approached the net for a volley, the 32-year-old went down in visible pain.

Mattek-Sands was treated by medics on court for 20 minutes, before she was eventually stretchered off while being administered oxygen. "The player was then transferred directly to an ambulance and taken under emergency conditions to a hospital", the statement continued. F***. Help me please'. I spoke with my physio afterwards, if he knows a little bit more.
