Mats Wilander has lacerated kidney
MELBOURNE, Australia -- Former champion Mats Wilander has been admitted to a hospital in Melbourne following a fall on the eve of the Australian Open.
The 47-year-old Swede is being treated for a laceration to one of his kidneys, according to a post on the Facebook page for his company, Wilander on Wheels.
The post says the internal bleeding stopped on Monday but Wilander will be "out of commission for a while."
Wilander, who won three Australian Opens among his seven Grand Slam singles titles, fell at his apartment in Melbourne late Saturday. He was scheduled to host a daily highlight show for television channel Eurosport at this year's tournament.
