Sienna Miller in shock as she puts hand to face after witnessing Zverev horror injury just yards away at French Open

ACTRESS Sienna Miller was left in shock after seeing Alexander Zverev suffer a horror ankle injury during the French Open semi final.

The Anatomy of a Scandal star, 40, was visibly distressed by the incident – as she sat just yards away from the German tennis pro.




Cameras caught Miller putting her hand to her face as Zverev was forced to retire from the match.

She was joined courtside by model boyfriend Oli Green, who appeared equally upset for the World No3.

In a physically draining match, which had taken more than three hours, Zverev twisted his right ankle while trying to retrieve a Nadal shot in the 12th game of the second set.

He fell to the floor and screamed out in agony, his shouts of pain heard all over Court Philippe-Chatrier.

Zverev was helped to his feet and left the court in a wheelchair where he received a medical timeout backstage.

About five minutes later he returned to the court on crutches to shake the umpire’s hand and the match was confirmed as officially over.

It has been a topsy-turvy match and the first-set, which was won by Nadal in a tie-break, lasted an incredible 98 MINUTES.

Nadal, who turned 36 today, saved four set points and somehow took the one-set lead.

In the end, it didn’t matter as Zverev left hurt to a standing ovation and someone else had to pack his tennis bag.

After the match, Nadal said: “It was very tough, very sad for him. He has been playing unbelievable tournament. He is a very good colleague on the Tour. I know how much he is fighting to win a grand slam but for the moment he was very unlucky

"I am sure he will win not one but more than that. I wish him all the bets and a fast recovery.

“It was a super tough match, over three hour long, and we didn’t finish the second set.

“He is one of the biggest challenge on the Tour when he plays at this super high level.
