Two-time Wimbledon tennis champion Petra Kvitova said on Tuesday she had been "badly injured" on her left playing hand after being attacked by a knife-wielding intruder in her apartment and would need to see specialists about the injury.

"In my attempt to defend myself, I was badly injured on my left hand. I am shaken, but fortunate to be alive," Kvitova, the world number 11, said on her Twitter account @Petra_Kvitova.

"The injury is severe and I will need to see specialists, but if you know anything about me I am strong and I will fight this."
