The injury which made Ana Ivanovic quit Wimbledon 2009 in tears is luckily just a mild one.
The 21-year-old Ivanovic was forced to retire from her fourth-round match with Venus Williams yesterday, but fortunately, the prognosis of her injury is a good one: although very painful, her left-thigh injury is not serious, it is a micro-tear.
The Serbian world No.12 must rest for just a week or two, and hence her schedule is not supposed to be affected. She will next play Los Angeles. (source: Ana Ivanovic’s official website, photo courtesy of Life)
