Tennis star slams ‘s***’ colleagues who ignored horror injuries as she doubts return | Tennis | sport


Daria Saville has called out her teammates after tearing her anterior cruciate ligament during this week’s Pan Pacific Open. The former world No. 20 made a comeback after a cooling operation this season and was moving up the rankings, but will be sidelined again after picking up the injury in the second game of her opener. And Saville lambasted his colleagues who said nothing about his latest injury.

Saville took to the court in the second game of her match against Naomi Osaka in Tokyo on Tuesday and could be heard screaming in pain before retiring injured. The Australian has since revealed she tore her anterior cruciate ligament, an injury that will see her sidelined again following her recent Achilles problem.

The world number 55 has only played three tournaments in 2020 and 2021, undergoing surgery and making a comeback this season. She had already climbed from world No. 419 earlier this year and was improving rapidly every week when she was stricken with the ACL injury at 1-0 in her first-round match.

And Saville has now taken to Instagram to call out her teammates who failed to acknowledge her injury after walking around the tournament site on crutches. After confirming she tore her ACL following a scan, the 28-year-old wrote: “Thank you to everyone who messaged me – it means the world.

But Saville was still full of gratitude to her teammates who shared their sympathy for her injury, adding: “And the colleagues who took a second of their busy lives waiting for their practice or game to say something. You are on my good list. I love you x.

It’s unclear who the Aussie was talking about in her post, but the Pan Pacific Open has attracted a strong field of players with Grand Slam champions Sofia Kenin, Elena Rybakina and Garbine Muguruza on the court as well as Osaka, who has said she was “really scared” for Saville when she got injured during their match.
