The 32-year-old fell to the ground as her right knee buckled, she immediately starting crying and screaming in pain. "She doesn't have any enemies in the locker room". She won a gold medal in mixed doubles at the Rio Olympics with Jack Sock, and has won the last three Grand Slam events with Safarova.
Paramedics gave her lengthy treatment including oxygen, but her screams could still be heard on nearby courts.
"Just bad what happened".
Cirstea has questioned why it took the medics so long to tend to her opponent, according to The Mirror. "It's just about her being healthy".
The announcers and those in attendance didn't appear to realize how serious the injury was - until Mattek-Sands started screaming for help with frightening urgency.
She has had glory with women's doubles and in mixed competitions.
Cirstea said she had never seen such an injury.
The All England Club defended their response, claiming: "The first response to Court 17 was within one minute, by a qualified ambulance technician".
Safarova had been watching the match but was called to her own singles match and only found out about the injury while she was on her way to play.
"The patch near the baseline is eaten up and the dirt underneath is like ice". Federer lost his first service game, but the seven-time Wimbledon champ was otherwise stellar in a 7-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory. Because I think everyone froze.
"I did feel strongly about it, but I knew in my mind: Where else are they going to put us and is it going to be better?"
After application of morphine she was gingerly transferred to a stretcher, then a gurney, with a sheet thrown over her legs to cover up her busted knee. Like football, boxing, all the others, it's straight away.
