Sania Mirza Admitted for Treatment of Knee Injury

Hyderabad: Tennis star Sania Mirza, who sustained injury to her right knee during the Qatar Open, was Saturday admitted to a private hospital here for treatment, which could last// four weeks.

Doctors at Apollo Hospitals said Sania, who hurt her knee's anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), would undergo an intense four-week physiotherapy and rehabilitation regimen.

"She will be reviewed after four weeks before taking a decision on the further course of action," said K. Hari Prasad, chief executive officer of Apollo Hospitals.

Doctors, however, said she need not undergo surgery and would be discharged from hospital in a couple of days.

Sania, ranked 46th on WTA tour, sustained a hyperextension injury to her right knee during her match against Italy's Romina Oprandi in the first round match at the Qatar Open Feb 26. She won the match.

The 20-year-old was brought to the hospital Friday with pain and swelling in the joint. Physical examination and an MRI indicated an ACL injury. She was admitted to the hospital for further evaluation Saturday morning.

"This examination reconfirmed the possibility of an ACL injury and it was decided to proceed further. Arthroscopy was done and this revealed a stretched ACL. The ligament was assessed for its functionality and it was found that the ligament's function was adequate," said a medical bulletin.

According to doctors, the two ligaments inside the knee - anterior and posterior - play a crucial role in mobility. Injury to either of them will weaken reflexes.

The injury, which had forced Sania to pull out of the Qatar open, could keep her away from action for some time. The doctors said recovery time would be known only after four weeks.

Sania has also been forced to skip the Pacific Life Open, beginning in US from March 5.
