Tennis Star Collapses On Court With Horrific Injury At Brisbane (Photos)

Garbrine Muguruza was forced to retire from the Brisbane International for a fourth year in a row amid shocking scenes on court.


Muguruza, who had the chance to overhaul Simona Halep at the top of the world rankings this week, had won the first set against Serbia’s Aleksandra Krunic 7-5.

But she lost the second set in a tie-break and was clearly struggling physically.

However, after a visit from coach Sam Sumyk, she was urged to carry on and even managed to force a break of serve in the decider.

But after hitting a serve at 2-1, 30-15, she collapsed on the baseline clutching her right calf, which was visibly cramping.

Muguruza won Wimbledon in 2017 but now faces a race against time to get fit in time for the first Grand Slam of the year: the Australian Open starts in Melbourne on January 15.

And the Spaniard was wished a speedy recovery by her opponent Krunic, who will now face Latvia’s Anastasija Sevastova in the quarter-final of the Brisbane International.

“It’s definitely not a nice feeling,” Krunic said.

“First of all me as an athlete, to see my colleague walking out of court, not being able to finish the match: it’s definitely a disappointment.

“Even though we can all say ‘we’re going to the next round, blah blah blah…’ the match is not overand there was a lot of play still for us and for you guys so definitely I’m not happy with what happened today.

“I just wanted to wish Garbine a fast recovery and I hope she gets better.”

SPORTS BREAKING NEWS! Ex-Ivorian Star Emmanuel Eboue Is Dead

The former Ivorian International star, Emmanuel Eboue, is dead. Emmanuel Eboue is reported to have committed suicide in London.

Eboue, is believed to had struggled with long-term depression. He was found dead in his sister’s North London home according to Police.

Ex-Ivorian football star Emmanuel Eboue did not leave a note behind and he was found hanging in the room on a fan hook, Police said in a statement.

Police declined to comment whether it was suicidal or a perpetrated act but assured the public an investigation is ongoing.

Emmanuel Eboue had received offers of legal advice in his bid to overturn a court ruling which was set to leave him homeless in the wake of his bitter divorce.

The ex-Arsenal defender, 34, previously spoke to the Mirror of his fears for the future following his acrimonious split from wife Aurelie.

The former Galatasaray star a fortnight ago revealed how he lost all his fortunes, going from a rich football star to a poor man who was contemplating suicide.

Eboue made millions of pounds at Arsenal and then more than £1.5million a year at Turkish side Galatasaray. However, the football star said he had lost all he had to his wife Aurelie who he claimed also handled his finances, adding that “whatever she told him to sign he signed.

After their divorce, the court awarded all his fortunes to his wife in a divorce settlement and he was ordered to also give up his house in London to the ex-wife.

The 34-year old and his wife lived there before he bought a mansion – which Aurelie has now put on the market.

Eboue had also surrendered his expensive cars to his wife, and before his death, he relied on London public transport. He often slept on a mattress on his living room floor.

As if all these were not enough, Eboue was also said to be suffering from an undisclosed medical problem.

The 34-year-old had served a one-year ban for failing to pay a former agent but got back into football recently, agreeing a deal with Cypriot side Turk Ocagi Limassol.

However, his move to Cyprus was not plain sailing and his agent Tekin Bircini said his client was

facing ‘medical problems’.
