As my readers will support, I have had many typos in my articles, but never one (hopefully) that gave readers a laugh like the one above gave me. This is truly tragic for a guy that was having a career year, but the "tendon made it to heaven" just struck me. For the correct spelling on the diagnosis, see below:

This looks like a 9-month recovery period, but there are never guarantees of a player returning to previous form. Here's hoping Victor's recovery is as fast as possible - and 100% complete.
