The Czech tennis star Petra Kvitová was hurt during an attack at her apartment in the Moravian town of Prostějov on Tuesday morning. It has been reported that the injury may include a cut to the tendons in her left hand, the one she plays with. A local newspaper quoted a source close to the player as saying that Kvitová had fought back against the attacker and in so doing had had her hands and all her fingers cut and would likely need surgery. Her spokesman Karel Tejkal told Czech Radio that it appeared to be a random rather than planned crime. He said the two-time Wimbledon winner, who is 26, was receiving medical care. Police said the assailant had got into Kvitová’s home by claiming to be a boiler inspector and had fled after the attack. They said a robbery had occurred.
