Mattek-Sands, who's ranked 103rd in singles, scored a three-set victory over Magda Linette in the opening round. She kept saying, 'Sorana, help me.

Mattek-Sands and her doubles partner Lucie Safarova were attempting to complete the calendar Grand Slam at Wimbledon.

"We should probably watch the whole video to see what happened but I was there and it felt forever", Cristea said, according to the Mirror. I've never seen anything like this, but it wasn't in a normal position.

"I went over and saw her knee out and turned around and told them to bring a stretcher because I think everyone froze".

She was eventually attended to by medical personnel.

Mattek-Sands lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband Justin Sands and beloved mastiff dog Ruger.

"The player was then transferred directly to an ambulance and taken under emergency conditions to a hospital".

Safarova was pictured in tears at courtside while her stricken friend was wheeled away to a waiting ambulance.

Mattek-Sands' husband Justin Sands tended to her as she lay on the turf of court 17, but it was almost 20 minutes before medical staffers removed her via a stretcher to a waiting ambulance, the New York Post reported.

Bethanie Mattek-Sands receives treatment from the medical team on day four of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London on Thursday.
