Tennis star Petra Kvitová’s attacker reportedly arrested

Police have reportedly arrested a man suspected of attacking tennis star Petra Kvitová in December 2016, Czech television reported on Wednesday. Police have confirmed that the case had been reopened a few months ago but didn’t provide any further details on grounds that it could threaten the ongoing proceedings.

Kvitová was attacked in her home in Prostějov, sustaining severe injuries to her left hand as she grappled with her attacker. After undergoing surgery and rehabilitation she made her comeback at the French Open last year.

The investigation into the attack was shelved in November last year due to lack of evidence.
