German tennis sensation Andrea Petkovic has had a injury hit season so far. She was first out of action for three months from mid-January to mid-April with a back injury and then, when she came back to the circuit the German encountered yet another injury this time to her ankle, putting her out of action for another four months. She is now ranked No.43 in the world, having missed so much action.
The German has always been known to be mentally tough, and it was all on display in her match against Timea Babos in her first match back as she toughed out a 6-3,5-7,7-5 win.
"I was very nervous today, but also very excited. It was a great match and Timea was playing so well," Petkovic said. "I was really emotional after the match. When I was out with my back and won my first match back in Stuttgart it was nice, but this time I've gone through more. And I broke into a little Petko Dance!
"It was fun to do the Petko Dance again. Sometimes in the past I felt a little obliged to do it, but this time it really came from inside."
The German talked about her time off, which wasn't all bad in the end.
"I did rehab Mondays through Saturdays, but the best thing about the injury was I kind of had my weekends off, so I went to so many concerts I never had the chance to go to before. I saw my friends a lot too. The weekends were great.
"I went to see Casper, a German rapper I've been a fan of for really, really long - he only performs in Germany, so I never really had the chance to go, and it was absolutely great. I also saw The Cure, which is one of my all-time favorite bands. There were so many bands I cannot name them all. I also went to a Dubstep thing, which I never really liked, but it was mindblowing. I was doing a Dubstep dance, but I hope it doesn't affect the Petko Dance because it was really ugly!"
