Anne Keothavong picks up a racket for the first time in two months following knee surgery. The British No.1 damaged both the anterior cruciate ligament and the meniscus in her left knee in a collision with a fence during a doubles match at the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford, California. Under the watchful eyes of the LTA's head coach of women's tennis Nigel Sears, Anne's coach Claire Curran, physios Andy Ireland and Will Herbert, Anne got her first feel for the ball in two months during a light half-hour practice at the National Tennis Centre, Roehampton. There's still a long way to go, but Anne's goal of returning to represent Great Britain in the Fed Cup in February remains in sight.
