WATCH: Bethanie Mattek-Sands screams for help after horrific Wimbledon injury

Bethanie Mattek-Sands confirmed Saturday on Facebook Live that she will need surgery to fix a dislocated patella and ruptured patella tendon, according to TSN Tennis.

"Bethanie is now undergoing more scans this morning and we should know more within the next few hours", said the WTA Tour in a statement.

"She kept staying, 'Sorana help me, Sorana help me, Sorana help me.' I said, 'I'm here, I'm here, I'm here.' I was trying, but of course I felt useless", said Cirstea, who was in the first game of the third set against Mattek-Sands.

Her screams stunned the crowd at Court 17 into silence, and she could be heard crying, swearing and begging for help as Cirstea tried to comfort her.

The Woman's Tennis Association said Mattek-Sands had suffered an acute knee injury and had been taken straight to hospital.

It's a well-known fact on Tour that one of Sania Mirza's best friends is current doubles world No.1 Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

Bethanie Mattek-Sands (USA) is tended to while on a gurney after being injured during her match against Sorana Cirstea (ROU) on day four at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

The rest of the cast are charming and endearing with many classic Spider-Man supporting characters getting a new twist. However, they cite a very different movie influence for developing Peter Parker's best friend Ned ( Jacob Batalon ).

The distressing drama on Court 17, where the 32-year-old lay stricken for at least 20 minutes, pushed the title campaigns of Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer onto the sidelines.

After nearly 20 minutes of on-court medical attention, Mattek-Sands was stretchered away to receive more treatment.

Rafael Nadal partially tore his patellar tendon in 2013, with a doctor at the time saying tendon recovery takes "a long time".

"I remember taking a step, my leg not being able to hold me and I went down", she said during a Facebook Live chat, per ESPN. I wished I could have done more.

"I freaked out. I have never seen such an injury before, the knee was really in a bad position".

"I'll be out for a while", she said. "You ask the referee to tell you what's the rule if both players don't want to keep on playing".

"You know, I guess whether that's his opinion or criticism or something else, I'm not really sure".
