Petra Kvitova still has no "concrete date" for a return to the WTA Tour, but has been using her racquet hand following the knife attack she suffered in December.

The Czech, a two-time Wimbledon champion, required surgery following a shocking incident in which she was attacked by an intruder.

Kvitova was able to move fingers on her left hand again shortly before Christmas and she has been using her hand for "daily activities".

Initially, it was thought that Kvitova would miss six months of action, but it remains unclear if that will be the case.

"Petra's recovery is continuing as planned, but everything is up in the air as to her return," her spokesman Karel Tejkal told AFP.

"Petra uses her hand without problem for daily activities. Of course, the hand is weakened but at first glance you can't see that she was injured," he added.

"But at the moment no-one can give a concrete date."

Adele 'not sure' if she'll tour again .
Adele is "not sure" if she'll ever embark on another world tour, insisting it is not something she is "good at." The Hello singer wrapped the New Zealand leg of her tour on Saturday (25Mar17) and during the show she gushed about the experiences she has had while out on the road, but admitted it has been difficult for her. "Touring isn't something I'm good at, applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable," she said to the crowd, according to the New Zealand Herald. "I don't know if I will ever tour again. The only reason I've toured is you. I'm not sure if touring is my bag. My greatest accomplishment in my career is this tour." "It's changed my life," she added. "I understand why I (tour)." Last year (16), it was reported the 28-year-old was looking to take a 10-year break from touring to focus on raising her son Angelo. "Angelo is the number one priority for Adele. He is the most important thing in her life," a source told The Sun newspaper. "She has brought him everywhere with her on tour but as he is starting school next year, he won't be able to join her any more. "Adele doesn't want to miss a moment of Angelo growing up and it's an easy decision for her to give up touring for him," the source added. "Right now she is saying she won't do another massive world tour like the current one for another 10 years." According to the publication, Adele would consider returning to live performing if she was offered a Las Vegas residency, like other singer mums Celine Dion, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez.
