Kvitova ready to return

Kvitova ready to return

The news that Petra Kvitova could be making a return to the tour at next monthŠ—Ès French Open following the dreadful knife attack on her during the close season, came as a welcome surprise.

My name will appear on the entry list for Roland Garros tomorrow because, as the entry deadline approached, I had made good progress in my recovery process

The two-time Wimbledon champion was not expected to return much before Wimbledon, if then, but she posted on her Instagram account: "Hello everyone! I wanted to provide a quick (and hopefully positive) update for you.

"My name will appear on the entry list for Roland Garros tomorrow because, as the entry deadline approached, I had made good progress in my recovery process and I want to give myself every last opportunity to be able to compete at one of my favourite events.

"This unfortunately does not mean necessarily that I will be ready to play in Paris, but that I’m doing everything possible to give myself the chance and keep a positive mindset.

"There remains a long road ahead but I wanted to share this update with you. Thanks for your continued support and I hope to see you soon, Petra."

The 27-year-old suffered serious injuries to her racket-holding left hand in an attack by an intruder at her apartment in the Czech Republic in December. Following surgery to repair tendons, her recovery is certainly swift and her fans will be praying that when she makes her comeback, it will be successful.
