Is this the quad injury that she sustained during the match with Errani at the French? When Bertens left the court in a wheelchair and returned to win in 3, then Errani accused her of faking it, mocked her by limping, and shouted "go f--- yourself"?

I watched that match, Errani’s behaviour was disgusting. I felt so bad for Bergen’s getting carted off at the end

Carlos Bernardes reportedly had a heart attack in Melbourne. Rushed to the hospital. Let's hope is not more serious than it already is.

He seems like a nice guy. I hope the players can get their best wishes to him somehow, and that he comes through it.

Melbourne is not a friendly place for officials. Charlie Whiting 2 years ago, and now Carlos...

Right now, I will not even pick her for the first round of the SP. This extended lay off is too much.

Ugh - she was getting crazy odds for not having played a match in eons. I was going to pick against her , but felt bad and didn't. "Emotions have no place in betting."

I hope she recovers as I like her sass and play.

Her statement makes it sound like they just want to focus on the Aussie Open and that she's not actually injured or suffering a setback, that because of the hard quarantine, taking the extra time if what her team decided. But she hasn't played in over a year, hasn't been in a major tournament in more like 15 months I think, so this doesn't seem like the best plan, that you'd want her to warm up for the bigger event and not just have it be practice. Which makes me doubt that everything is okay.

And not for nothing, but the other thing that makes me doubt everything is okay is that she was in training in Dubai ahead of the other tournament, and didn't see fit to enter that tournament either. Hope they are just being overly cautious.

She needs to get a sponsorship with Bubble Wrap. I can so picture the commercial with her playing completely covered in the stuff.

She's in the field for the tournament in Adelaide too. I'd imagine that is now firmly in doubt.
