Soon after, she entered the finals of the Wimbledon Championships but failed to go the distance, losing to eventual champion Petra Kvitova. She ended the season at the US Open and reached the fourth round, which to date is her best result. 

As a fan, we hope she recovers from her injury quickly and steps soon on the courts. All eyes will be on her when she steps on the courts after a lengthy duration.
