What’s this with off-court injuries? It’s not only the busy schedule that’s threatening players’ health, restaurants and weddings are dangerous too. Kim Clijsters sustained a right ankle injury at her cousin Tim’s wedding and “the consequences are rather dire”, as her official website reports.
Clijsters’ ankle is completely immobilized and she will not be able to use her foot for a few days, while she faces a recovery of at least four to six weeks. Therefore, her participation at the French Open is very unlikely. The Belgian will use the time out to continue working on her recovery from shoulder and wrist injuries.
As you know, Serena Williams has been sidelined with an off-court injury for almost a year. The American stepped on broken glass at a restaurant in Munich, and she’s since endured two surgeries and various complications.
