Picture Of The Day: Wake Up! You Have A Match To Play!

victoria azarenka collapses on court

Okay, so the female on the ground in this picture is Victoria Azarenka, and it doesn’t look like she is going anywhere.

Azarenka collapsed on the court during her second round match against Gisela Dulko at the US Open.  She was later diagnosed with a mild concussion, which they believe she sustained after falling during a pre-match training session.  The fact that temperatures on the court reached a sweltering 110 degrees during the match likely did not help her cause.

Doctors attended to Azarenka as she laid on the court, placing ice packs on her body and giving her water.  She was eventually taken off the court in a wheelchair and driven to the hospital.  She has since been released and was resting in her hotel Wednesday night.

Here is video footage of this scary incident.
