Andrea Petkovic Out of French Open and Wimbledon

German media are reporting that Andrea Petkovic is out of action for 3 months. Top German player twisted her ankle while playing the second round in her home tournament, Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, against Victoria Azarenka. Out of action for 3 means, Petkovic will not be participating in French Open and Wimbledon. This also puts a question about her participation in Olympics which starts at 27th July, 2012. According to the journalist, Angelica Fratini, "Petkovic ruptured 2 ligaments in her right ankle. the 3rd ligament has also been overstretched. The decision about a possible operation will be taken by Petkovic after further examinations". She missed Australian Open early this year due to back injury. 2012 is turning out to be a disaster for the German who had been doing very well in 2011 to achieve her career highest ranking of No.9 in October. Get well soon, Petkovic. WTA needs you back soon.
