    So maybe she does not want to force it, but she can get some time on court for when she starts playing full strength.
    Also, she could be training only the physical part.
    Fine. Just rubbed me the wrong way. Like I said, I usually don't question injuries at all.

    Re: Injury and Illness

    Not sure this is the right thread... In the Samarkand Challenger, Goncalo Oliveira first played his singles quartelfinals match, retiring while trailing 2:6, 2:5, which is dubious to say the least, A little bit later the same day he played his doubles semifinal (and won). IMO there should be a rule that a) calls for an investigation every time someone retires shortly before the end of a match and b) forbids to play doubles after pulling out of singles. (BTW I don't know anything about Oliveira or his matches.)

    Alona pulled a similar stunt the other day retiring after losing the first set and down 4-5 in the second.

    I agree with you.

    Can someone explain to me why a match has to be fully played in order to give action to a bet? It seems to just beg for abuse, any time a low ranked player has great odds, they could lay off bets on themselves, and just retire if they realize they can't win, and get their money back. Why can't a bet just be win/lose no matter how it happens?

    A lot of bookies in the UK pay out on retirements, provided the first set was completed. As a punter I prefer the matches to be void due to injury, there’s nothing more maddening than losing your money due to your player retiring mid match
