Sorana Cirstea about Mattek Sands: 'It seemed like movies, I freaked out'

WATCH: Bethanie Mattek-Sands screams for help after horrific Wimbledon injury

Her doubles partner, Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic, was spectating the match and could be seen crying as Mattek-Sands was tended to on Court 17.

"It's obviously been an emotional and painful rollercoaster the last couple of days", Mattek-Sands said during an emotional Facebook Live chat Saturday morning.

The Grand Slam was also criticized for its court surfaces, with fellow tennis player Kristina Mladenovic revealing that she heard numerous complaints from other players about it. "I've never seen anything like this, probably except in the movies. Hopefully, she won't need surgery or something like this", she added. To Cristea, that was too long.

While Mattek-Sands's knee buckled on Court 17, her screams for help was so distressing that television cameras panned away from the fallen figure near the net. "I felt useless. All she kept saying was 'Sorana, help me, help me'". Mattek-Sands could be heard screaming in the aftermath, urging trainers to help her through the ordeal.

A club spokesperson confirmed to AAP that a courtside stretcher was available but wasn't brought out until Matek-Sands had been administered with painkillers to numb her pain. I hate watching sports injuries, let alone myself. "Everything was slow after that, it was just this loud pop".

Here's a video of Mattek-Sands' injury.




Mattek-Sands said she will fly to NY on Sunday to seek further medical advice.

"I remember my knee just feeling really tight and I took a look at it and something was wrong".

"I remember taking a step, my leg not being able to hold me, and I went down", she said. I called for help, but no one was coming.

She recalled husband Justin telling her not to look at the leg.

She said: "I am going to be heading to NYC to see more doctors to see what's really going on. I panicked a little bit as well". "Anyone that knows me knows I'm pretty positive and I smile a lot ... and I was having a hard time. I'll get through this".

"I remember Sorana talking to me and telling me it's going to be OK and I think that's incredible".
