Hello everyone Welcome to TennisPAL Chronicles the podcast to feed your passion for all things tennis!

Many of you might know Bethanie from the viral video of 2017 – Worst Tennis injury in history! There are many versions of the video but the ABC channel racked up 1.5 million views.  Bethanie is American professional tennis player. She is an Olympic Gold medalist, has won nine Grand Slam titles – five in women’s doubles and four in mixed doubles, and is a former doubles world No. 1.

Playing Sorana Cîrstea in the second round of the Wimbledon singles, Mattek-Sands was running to the net at the beginning of the third set when she collapsed in agony, clutching at her right knee. She shouted out a large number of swear words for which she later apologized. She was treated on the court before being rushed to a local hospital with an “acute knee injury” which was later revealed to be a dislocated kneecap and ruptured patellar ligament, for which surgery was required.[8] Mattek-Sands had suffered a torn medial collateral ligament on the same knee in September 2013.[9]

This interview was recorded by UTR and released as an invitation-only live event that isn’t available publicly anywhere else so please enjoy this great look into the life of Bethanie Maddek Sands. Let’s listen together.
