This still active female athlete who has had particular success in an event going on right now is the subject of a current article on a big sports site.
A large part of it focuses on the injuries she sustained about a year and half ago as a result of a violent attack and her journey back to the top. As usual, details are omitted.
Yes she was stabbed in the hand and the arm but the motive wasn’t robbery.
Rather this was revenge by the older crime figure in her home country who financed her early career and forced her to be his mistress.
She was successful in breaking away from him once she got big but this is a message to anyone else thinking of the same thing.

Tennis Star Petra Kvitova Badly Injured By Knife-Wielding Attacker
Tennis star Petra Kvitova was badly injured Tuesday morning when a man armed with a knife attacked her at her home in Prostejov, Czech Republic.
The two-time Wimbledon champion said she sustained “severe” injuries to her left hand, which is her playing hand, and that she was “fortunate to be alive.”
In a series of tweets, Kvitova wrote:
“Thank you for all your messages. As you may have already heard, today I was attacked in my apartment by an individual with a knife. In my attempt to defend myself, I was badly injured on my left hand. I am shaken, but fortunate to be alive. The injury is severe and I will need to see specialists, but if you know anything about me I am strong and I will fight this. Thank you all again for your love and support.”
The 26-year-old suffered deep cuts to the four fingers on her left hand and underwent surgery to help repair the ligaments and tendons, as the BBC reported.
The BBC also reported some details about the attack, which was characterized as a burglary. It said: “It is understood she allowed someone posing as a utilities man access to her apartment and while defending herself in a struggle, suffered the injuries to her hand. The intruder is believed to have then run away and is being sought by police.” – Source
