Kvitova eyes Wimbledon return

Two-time grand slam champion Petra Kvitova could return to tennis at Wimbledon following surviving a horrific knife attack in 2016.

 

The two-time Wimbledon champion was stabbed by an attacker in her home in Prostejov in December and suffered damage to her tendons and nerves on her left hand.

Now after months of rehabilitation and training, a spokesperson for Kvitova revealed she is “on track” to play at Wimbledon and would make a “last minute decision” about competing at Roland Garros, which qualifiers started this week.

The 27-year-old, who is left-handed, has fallen to 16th in the world rankings after five months on the sidelines.
