Austrian Kathrin Unterwurzacher has survived the surgery well after her cruciate ligament rupture at the Grand Slam in Tokyo. The 25-year-old expects about an 8 months forced break. Unterwurzacher who was this year’s number two in the IJF World Ranking in the beginning of 2017, will miss out on the beginning of the Olympic qualifiers.

This year Unterwurzacher won the Grand Prix in Tashkent and she took bronze in Abu Dhabi’s Grand Slam. In the quarter final of the Grand Slam in Japan she got injured to her right knee in her match against Nami Nabekura.

The number seven of the Olympic Games won two European Championships medals and won 10 qualification events. In Tokyo she defended the Grand Slam title.
