They say the fall from glory hurts a lot. And there's nothing worse than an injury to bring about a fall.Injuries have always been a part of the game of tennis. Some of the injuries don’t have a much bearing on a player( since they may receive instant treatment, courtesy Volini sprays and return back to the court) while others may not be so lucky.While most players work hard at their game to reclaim the top spot again, there are a few unfortunate ones who get saddled with one injury after another, often cutting into the recovery time as well.Here is a look at some of the most injury-prone female tennis players:
#5 Serena Williams
The current world number 1 has seen both mental and physical injuries come in the way of her title-accumulation. But Williams has definitely been a hero in tackling them with utmost patience and strength.
In 2008, she withdrew from three tournaments because of a dental surgery. In 2010, she had stepped on broken glass and went out of action for most of that year. In 2011, she also confirmed that she was suffering from hematoma and pulmonary embolism.
Williams withdrew from the China Open this year due to a left-knee injury. She was in agony when she stated, “It throbs just sitting, standing.I felt it mostly serving because I'm landing on my left knee. That was really killer for me.”
