After surgery and months of rehab, Petra Kvitova might be back on tour as early as next week at the French Open. The 2-time Wimbledon champion has been off the circuit since severely injuring tendons in her left hand during a home invasion last December.
But with a return date in the summer, the Czech surprised many by not pulling out of the French Open and then showing up in Paris for a practice session.
The 27-year-old will make a decision on playing the French Open tomorrow though, curiously, after the draw is made noon Paris time.
“Hi guys, I have some news,” she posted Wednesday on Instagram. “I am flying to Roland Garros today and taking part in a press conference on site at 2.30pm local time on Friday. Keep everything crossed for me that I will be able to play there”
