Clay tennis can be somewhat tricky as there is a lot of sliding and injuries do tend to happen. The Polish superstar experienced a minor tumble after hitting a return winner during a practice with Vekic in Stuttgart but she was okay. Reporter Diego Barbiani posted the video of the tumble on social media explaining what had happened.
Vekic asked Swiatek if she was okay and she replied positively with her coach joking about the return saying:

"That was a ninja return!"
