Tennis star Petra Kvitova, Wimbledon Champion, attacked by a intruder holding a knife when she was in her apartment on Tuesday.

While defending herself she sustained serious injuries on her hand and was  lucky to be alive, as, she was all alone in her apartment, in the city of Prostejov, Czech Republic.

Kvitova tweeted that she would need to see an specialist about her injuries and gave no signs when she will be able to play again.

“In my attempt to defend myself, I was badly injured on my left hand. I am shaken, but fortunate to be alive.” she said on her Twitter account @Petra_Kvitova. “The injury is severe and I will need to see specialists, but if you know anything about me I am strong and I will fight this.”

Karel Tejkal, spokesman for the Czech Fed Cup team, told Czech media that the attack was a random criminal attack and she had not been specifically targeted.

Mlada Fronta Dnes, a newspaper website, said the intruder introduced himself to Kvitova as a boiler inspector.

“What has happened to me was not pleasant at all, but it is already behind me,” Fed Cup team’s Facebook page posted her statement.

“The main thing for me now is that the doctors will determine how my hand is doing. I trust them and I believe that it will end well.”

Kvitova was in top 10 since 2011, and reached as high as the 2nd position when she won two singles at Wimbledon.

Similar to the incident, Monica Seles was stabbed in 1993, during a break at a tournament in Germany. The attacker had an excessive obsession with her rival Steffi Graf. The attack kept Seles out of the game for two years.
