    Right or not, Sloane just comes off as a spoiled brat who has to have the last word.

    Re: WTA PM ATP M500 Beijing 9/29-10/7 2018

    I wish more fans had been able to see the stunt Kasatkina pulled vs Siegemund.

    Kasatking was losing the battle against the wind and Siegemund when out of nowhere she said she felt ill. The trainer came out and checked her BP and pulse but Kasatkina asked for the actual doctors. I guess they had to fly them in from Taiwan (joke) because they took forever to come out. By the time they got there Kasatkina sas indictating there was something wrong in her waist area so down on the ground she went where the doctors poked and prodded. She did not indicate that there was any discomfort, got up and went on court to resume play. The comm on WTA TV who is usually very good at keeping listeners informed about what is going on was silent.

    During this Siegemund talked with her coach, took a potty break and came back on court. She began to warm up about the time Kasatkina was being checked by the doctors.

    Kasatkina played one game, lost it, and retired.

    Just my opinion but this was Tomic level tanking by Kasatkina. She should be fined.

    I'm not a big fan of Sloane but I think she decided, when Pavs called the trainer that she wasn't having the bs that Kasatkina pulled done to her.

    Also the chair did a very good job of keeping the two apart and defusing the situation.

    Wang has served the dreaded Double Bagel to Ostapenko. To be fair Wang was the bookies favourite and home hope, but I thought Penko might have won that one

    C'mon, Megan, that's not fair. She is 20. Did you ever get tired at 20? And anyway, beating Mugu is no longer (was it ever?) a monumental achievement. To invoke meldonium simply because of a victory over an opponent that is already planning her retirement is not terribly nice
    (And you know I like both of them).
