sometimes winning a tennis tournament is about being the last person standing. besides, in that match, something i did may have caused them to be unable to continue, which is unfortunate, but "earned." earned sounds so harsh, but when you are playing someone and they start cramping up, that's something you have earned, so why would this be any different?
the media would probably have a circus with it, but you could come out smelling like roses if you persay, split the prize money with them... but kept the trophy.
and besides, even if this person couldn't stand, if they were good enough to beat me that badly, they could just let me ace them, or wait for a few double faults to secure victory. nowhere in the rules does it say that u havge to be standing during your return games-- or does it??? lol
but if they were that good, they could throw in a few serves and take the match uncomfortably. i wouldn't want to be known as the person stupid enough to give up the prestige of a grand slam either. "they couldn't even give him a grand slam he was so bad" isn't something i'd like to be remembered by either
