Petra Kvitova the Two-time champion ‘on track’ for Wimbledon after stabbing

Wednesday, 24 May 2017 :  The 26-year-old, a two-time Wimbledon champion, was stabbed on 20 December by an intruder in her apartment in Prostejov in the Czech Republic.

She could return at the French Open, which starts next week.

A spokeswoman for Kvitova said the player would make a “last-minute decision” about competing in Paris.

Following the attack in December, surgeons spent almost four hours repairing tendons and nerves in Kvitova’s left hand – her playing hand.

The Czech, who won Wimbledon in 2011 and 2014, will be included on the official entry list for this year’s Championships, which will be released on Wednesday.

Earlier this month, she posted a photograph on social media of her returning to full training in Monaco.

Wimbledon – the third Grand Slam of the season – starts on Monday, 3 July.
