The 25-year-old will have a scan later on Wednesday after colliding with a fence while attempting to chase down a ball in the first-round match.

Keothavong and Japanese partner Ayumi Morita had won the first set 6-4 against Julie Coin and Marie-Eve Pelletier but were trailing 5-3 in the second when the injury occurred.

The Londoner was treated on court and had to be carried off on a stretcher.

Keothavong wrote on her Twitter page: “Busted my knee, got a scan in the morning but think I know already.”

The world number 54, who lost in the first round of the singles to Elena Dementieva, would lose a lot of ranking points if she was unable to play in the US Open next month after reaching the third round last year.
