Just hours before getting her French Open campaign under way, Petra Kvitova was forced to call off her training after feeling pain in her dominant left hand.

According to reports, the Czech star was just five minutes into her practice session when she couldn’t continue anymore and had to seek the physio’s help.

It was the same hand that was severely bruised after a knife attack a couple of years back, following which she was forced to undergo surgery.

The 29-year-old, however, is expected to be fit in time as she is scheduled to cross the swords with Sorana Cirstea of Romania in the first round on Monday.

Kvitova, who is currently leading the race to WTA Finals, could regain the No. 1 ranking by winning her second trophy on Parisian clay.

She, however, is not looking that far ahead as she insists she’s got nothing to prove.

“I don’t really care how Paris will end up, actually,” Kvitova was quoted as saying by WTA.

“I didn’t have great results for so many Grand Slams in the past, and I already did a great result in the Australian Open, which I’m very proud of. I couldn’t really imagine myself playing in the final again.

“So for me, I think it’s kind of something [where] I already proved myself and I just don’t have to run for something else. So whatever happens, happens.”
