Themorningbellbd.com desk, December 20: Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova has been injured in a knife attack at her home.
Kvitova has been treated for a left hand injury – which is not life-threatening – after the incident in the eastern Czech town of Prostejov.
The incident occurred on Tuesday and has been described by her publicist Karel Tejkal as a burglary.
The 26-year-old left-hander is ranked 11 in the world and won Wimbledon in 2011 and 2014.
“It was a random crime, nobody was going to attack or rob her as Petra Kvitova,” Tejkal said.
Kvitova beat Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard in the 2014 Wimbledon final and Russian Maria Sharapova in 2011 to win her only Grand Slams.
Earlier on Tuesday she withdrew from January’s Hopman Cup with a foot injury.
