Russia's Daniil Medvedev speaks to the press after losing his second round match against Belgium's Ruben Bemelmans at Wimbledon

Top-ranked doubles player Bethanie Mattek-Sands was apparently injured Thursday while playing at the 2017 Wimbledon Championships. "It was like something you see only in the movies", Cristea told BBC News.

Mattek-Sands was eventually taken to hospital while Wimbledon said she had suffered an "acute knee injury", which Cirstea felt was a dislocated kneecap.

Mattek-Sands isn't the only one who had reasons to be displeased with the courts. "She was shouting "Sorana, help me" and all I could say was "I'm here, be strong".", she added.

Cirstea, who had dropped the first set 4-6 but took the second 7-6 (7/4), was declared the victor of the second round match.

The Romanian said, "I think everyone froze".

Mattek-Sands- who was born in Minnesota, lived in Wisconsin and now calls Arizona home with her husband Justin - thought about quitting tennis years ago after a series of injuries.

When Safarova learned what happened, she was visibly distraught.

"So, yeah, I hope is not as bad that it seemed, and she can have a quick, quick recovery". There was hip surgery less than a week after her wedding in late 2008, a torn shoulder in 2011, a broken right big toe in 2012. "I felt useless. All she kept saying was, 'Sorana, help me, help me'". As she did so, however, her knee buckled beneath her and she fell to the grass turf, screaming in pain.

They also offered support for Mattek-Sands.

Take a look at the incredible scenes in the video player above.

Mattek-Sands, a wildcard singles player, was within reach of a win before the injury.

She is now the No. 1 women's doubles tennis player in the world, which further adds to the cruelty of this injury. "I wish I could have done more".
