Sixth knee surgery for Krajicek

It takes a certain kind of stubbornness to persevere in pro sport.

Spain’s Pablo Andujar is back, after three elbow surgeries in 13 months.

And Michaella Krajicek of the Netherlands can double that.

Krajicek, who reached the top 30 as a teenager and is now still just 29,  underwent her sixth knee surgery last weekend.

She missed most of the 2017 season, returning last October and winning a $15,000 Pro Circuit event in singles in February. 

The Dutchwoman hasn’t played since.

She will have even more time to explore her artistic side – not that she wouldn’t trade it for court time in a heartbeat.
