Czech tennis player Kvitova injured in knife attack

BBC – Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova has been injured in a knife attack at her home, her publicist says.

Kvitova has been treated by doctors for a left hand injury – which is not life threatening – after the incident in the eastern Czech town of Prostejov.

The incident occurred on Tuesday and has been described as a burglary by her publicist Karel Tejkal.

The 26-year-old left hander is ranked 11 in the world and won Wimbledon in 2011 and 2014.

“It was a random crime, nobody was going to attack or rob her as Petra Kvitova,” Tejkal said.
