Uh oh — Grey’s Anatomy star Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt) is down for the count! While playing tennis alongside tennis great Chris Evert in a charity event, the 2013 Chris Evert Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic, on Sunday, Kevin injured his right calf muscle. Ouch!
In case you’re not a huge sport-a-holic, you might be wondering who Chris Evert is. To catch you up to speed, Chris is a crazy huge star in the tennis world — in fact, she used to be the number one player in the world. Whoa!
All was going well for Kevin — have you seen the yummy breakfast they fed these people at the event? — until his game, when he got hurt while playing with Chris against Elizabeth Shue and pro tennis player Mats Wilander. But no harm, no foul (or whatever sports metaphor is appropriate here… anyone? Anyone?), because Chris and Kevin still won the match, and according to Kevin, he had a great time.
“Had a blast @ChrissieEvert tennis event today,” Kevin tweeted. “So psyched to play with her, Mats Wilander, and Elizabeth Shue. #goodtimes.”
“You played awesome,” Chris tweeted in reply. “Big serves, dealt with the pressure like a pro, volleyed like a demon, and held your partner up!!!”
And if you’re worried about Kevin’s injury, we’re assuming all is well — he was back up and at ‘em tonight, headed off in his formal wear to tonight’s events at the classic. He cleans up pretty good, don’t you think?
And just in case Kevin’s more hurt than he’s letting on, we know a killer orthopedic surgeon. Maybe he should stick to being the chief of surgery from now on?
