RIVALRY!!!!! Is it getting personal??
Well I just really found something fishy about these sudden withrawals of Top players in tournaments when they feel 1% below their level.
I just thought that TOP players are now playing the tactics of avoiding players in their zone specially in the court surface giving advantage to their opponents.
Is Rivalry getting personal now a days that Elite players dont wanna meet their fellow top players if they are not 100%.
I just miss those old rivalry of Hingis and Davenport where you can see them finals of consecutive tournaments fighting for number one spot professionally. They seldom withdraw in tournaments unless they cant walk anymore. Is it could be the body demand of game is increasing? Or is it just there rivalry thing these days?
These has been done of Williams sisters even before thus avoiding playing indoor surfaces and withdrawing into tournaments so suddendly and now seems Henin playing the same game. Dont get me wrong but I think Davenport just learned about this tactics from Sidney this year not playing Henin in the semis because of her minor shoulder injury.
I'm not blaming these players for their withrawals or not playing into tournaments. Its their prerogative not to play if they feel not 100% but I think its more something to do with Rivalry and not really into Injury.
