"It's quite unique with your opponent, after two games, you both agree on stopping playing in a slam", Mladenovic said, per the Guardian. "No-one was having any reaction", she said.

American tennis player Bethanie Mattek-Sands went down Thursday with a brutal knee injury at Wimbledon.

The All-England Club released a statement following the match: "The first response to Court 17 was within one minute, by a qualified ambulance technician. Help me!" There was no immediate word on the extent of her injury.

Women's top seed Angelique Kerber won her second-round match in straight sets, as did fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki, Svetlana Kuznetsova and No. 9 Agnieszka Radwanska.

"I was anxious about, maybe, our safety, to be honest", Riske said. When she was taken out of the field she was seen crying out in pain and clutches her right leg.

She's also quite a doubles player, ranked No. 1 right now after teaming with Lucie Safarova to win the past three major championships and a total of five.

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, 32, was a wild-card entry into the annual singles tournament this year. She was later seen in tears courtside. She could be heard screaming in pain and was quickly surrounded by doctors and medical personnel. "Then I called for help, but no one was coming".

Mattek-Sands' husband, Justin, tried to console his wife as medics arrived. I'm not sure how the other courts are, if they're damaged that much as Court 18.

She was treated for 25 minutes on court before being taken to hospital where she was further attended to overnight.
