BETHANIE MATTEK-SANDS suffered a horror knee injury on day four of Wimbledon.

The Championships Wimbledon 2017 has started on a dramatic note this week as American tennis player Bethanie Mattek-Sands suffered a awful injury mid-match against Sorana Cirstea. "It was like something you see only in the movies", Cristea told BBC News. The severity of her injury was unknown as of Thursday afternoon, but it's safe to say it was very serious.

American Bethanie Mattek-Sands receives treatment from a medical team and later retires from her second round match against Sorana Cirstea of Romania at the Wimbledon yesterday. But they insisted the stretcher was on court well before it was needed, stressing the correct medical procedures are to provide painkillers and keep the player motionless while they are being assessed.

The All England Club said that a "qualified ambulance technician" was on the scene within a minute, but that did not stop the drama.

Mattek-Sands, 32, took the first set 6-4 but dropped the second-set tie-break 7-4. Sorana, help me.' I said, 'I am here.

"Help me, help me, please!" she cried out after collapsing to the ground. Her husband, Justin, was also on the court comforting her. Safarova heard about Mattek-Sands on TV and ran to her court, then stood nearby and wiped away tears as she saw her friend and playing partner in distress.

Cristea later questioned the length of time it took for Mattek-Sands to be put on a stretcher and taken off Court 17 and to hospital for surgery.

Mattek-Sands's horrific injury has highlighted player concerns about safety at the tournament this year. F***. Help me please'. I wished I could have done more.
