Tennis - Former world no. 10 Andrea Petkovic recalls her most embarrassing moment in tennis in an interview with Tennis Grandstand.

Petkovic recalls the 2010 US Open where she ran into the legendary John McEnroe just before her match and McEnroe wisher her good luck and told her her would be commentating on the match. The German was so nervous thinking of McEnroe commentating on her match that she lost easily that day.

"Well, I think the most embarrassing is definitely when I played against [Vera] Zvonareva (in the fourth round) at the 2010 US Open night session on Arthur Ashe stadium. And before my warm-up, John McEnroe came to me and he was like, “Good luck, Petko.” I was so nervous. He said to me, “I’m going to be commentating on your match.” I was so nervous that I lost 6-1, 6-2. I didn’t put in one ball! I was just thinking about John McEnroe during the entire time of the match!"

In the same interview, Petkovic also states that she is most scared by injuries,"After my injuries, I definitely have to say, more injuries because it was the toughest time in my life. I love tennis so much and it was just taken away from me. That was one of the most bitter memories in my life, so I’m definitely afraid of injuries."
