Over-confident Tatiana

Tatiana Golovin

Anna was freakin injured

http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

This isnt the whole article but this part:



PARIS (AP) -- French teen Tatiana Golovin erased two match points Tuesday and reached the second round of the Gaz de France when sixth-seeded Anna Smashnova-Pistolesi quit with leg cramps.

The 16-year-old Golovin, a wild-card entry, was ahead 1-6, 7-5, 3-1 when her opponent stopped. ``I wore her down,'' Golovin said.

fuck.

dont hate on Tati. Anna didnt get leg cramps by sitting on her ass. Tati indeed wore the backboard down by making her work.

The full quote was something like "I'm very happy because I broke her down" (plier in French)

Pretty obnoxious thing to say when your opponent has retired from the match.

So what? Good for Tatiana. she did break her down ...

And you know, maybe she doesn't entirely believe Pistolesi's injury. Maybe she thinks Anna just wanted an excuse for blowing such a gigantic lead.

Anna P did have two matchpoints but from that part of the game It was Anna's nerves that initially stop her from winning the game, the third set is where Anna Retired because of injury, thats where Tatiana initiated the Break Down of Anna, but in saying that she didn't wear her down initially to win, only after the injury she triumphed.

Still that does seem a little obnoxious to comment, especially if she had retired, I would accept the comment wholehartedly if Anna had not of retired though.

Cramp isn't a proper injury anyway.

Not having seen the match, I can't comment on why Tatiana won and whether she "broke her down". Perhaps she did. I'm not some great Pistolesi fan, but I've seen her play her many long and tough three-set matches where she didn't retire. She's blown leads before as well as made huge comebacks so it seems really unlikely that she retired just out of shame of having blown the lead. I see no reason to doubt the legitimacy of Anna's injury.
While Tatiana should be happy with her victory, it just seems obnoxious to take credit for injuring the opposing player. Or to imply that the injury was fake.

Having seen the match, I can confirm that Tatiana wore her down.

The exchanges in the first set lasted in majority 12-13 shots (by each player) at a very good pace. Tatiana was besides mixing long and shorter balls, right and left.

When she felt that Anna was tired (as from the middle of the second set), she increased the number of drop shots.

As from the middle of the second sets, the exchanges were shorter, mostly because Anna was tired (6-8 shots each player).
