A decade of pain for Ana Konjuh

Croatia’s Ana Konjuh has been in pain for a decade.

The former US Open and Australian Open junior champion, who did the Eddie Herr/Orange Bowl double at 14, Konjuh had three surgeries on her right elbow – the third right after she hit the top 20 at age 19.

As a last resort, Konjuh – only 21– had ulnar lateral ligament reconstruction (Tommy John) surgery in March. 

Brian Baker needed three years to recover.
