Golfing superstar Tiger Woods was hospitalised on Tuesday with multiple open fractures to his lower right leg after a severe car crash. Several athletes send warm wishes for a speedy recovery of the 45-years-old American while legends Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams both are reacted from the tennis world.
Few hours after recusing a famed sportsman, Alex Villanueva of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Tiger Woods “was conscious and able to communicate” with officials in the press conference on Tuesday.
According to Harbor UCLA Medical Center statement, Tiger Woods, who had a rod placed in his tibia and screws and pins inserted in his foot and ankle during emergency surgery, was “awake, responsive, and recovering in his hospital room.”
However, tennis legends Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams, who have a good relationship with Woods, have concerns over the American golfer’s health and sent warm greetings for fast recovery.
The 20-time Grand Slam title winner wished, “When I heard the news, I was really concerned. Good to know you are doing OK. Get well soon, my friend!!!!!
On the other hand, the 23-time Grand Slam champion went on to say, “Love you, big brother… but We will get through this @TigerWoods.”
Tiger Woods Sympathised With Serena Williams And Rafael Nadal
Having reached 14th in 2008, Tiger Woods took 11 years to claim his 15th major championships due to injury and personal issues.
Woods countrywoman, the 39-years-old Serena Willaims, has a similar quest to win her 24th Grand Slam title and equal Margaret Court’s record. Simultaneously, the 34-years-old Nadal faces a slightly different challenge: the Spaniard aims to increase his number of slams victories above 20.
When asked if the proximity to such historic milestones made it harder to win, Woods suggested age was the greatest factor.
“You know, I think it gets harder to win as we all age. I think that when you’re in your prime, in your peak years, you have to take advantage of those opportunities so that when you get to the all-time marks, you have the opportunity,” the 15-time major championships winner said.
American added, “I think that whether it’s Rafa or Fed or Serena, they’ve been so consistent and so dominant for such a long period of time, that’s how you get to have those all-time marks. Consistency over a long period of time is the hallmark of those records.”
We hope that Woods will recover sooner and extend his golfer journey for many more years.
