I am shaken, but fortunate to be alive.
Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova suffered "severe" cuts to all four fingers on her left hand during a knife attack at her home Tuesday morning, according to the BBC.
It's unclear how the injury could impact the left-handed player's career.
In my attempt to defend myself, I was badly injured on my left hand. I am shaken, but fortunate to be alive. The injury is severe and I will— Petra Kvitova (@Petra_Kvitova) December 20, 2016
need to see specialists, but if you know anything about me I am strong and I will fight this. Thank you all again for your love and support— Petra Kvitova (@Petra_Kvitova) December 20, 2016
The burglary happened in Kvitova's home in Prostejov, Czech Republic, the tennis star's spokesman, Karel Tejkal, told ESPN.
Prostejov police have launched a manhunt for the suspect who was described as an approximately 35-year-old man.
"What happened to me was certainly not pleasant, but it's behind me," Kvitova wrote in a statement on the Facebook page of the Czech Republic's Fed Cup team. "The main thing for me now is that the doctors find out what is the condition of my hand."
Kvitova, who won the 2011 and 2014 Wimbledon, was scheduled to participate in a charity event Tuesday with Czech player, Luci Safarova, ESPN reports.
Before this incident, Kvitova withdrew from next month's Hopman Cup because of a foot injury.
