Foot injury for Belinda.

She started going for broke in the second set, but clearly didn't want to risk further injury.

Was 6-4 2-3

A real shame for Belinda, hope she's fine for the AO.

Putintseva was incredibly lucky today. 1) to be playing an injured opponent, and 2) to not at least get coded after throwing her racquet and hitting a linesman - surely the umpire mustn't have seen what happened.

Hope she gets dragged for filth in R2.

At least she gave Belinda a hug at the net and had a nice conversation with her

Hopefully, she can still participate in the Australian Open.

All ballboys may be safe without Ostapenko, but linesmen are not as Putin moves through the draw. Footage anyone?

Sucks for Belinda, but I think it's only her nail. She should be fine, it was probably just annoying her and her retirement is a precaution.

She broke her toe nail against Mladenovic,I think that's what bothered her.

Relieved it was such a minor injury. The WTA needs Bencic to get healthy.

I think she broke her nail in Hopman Cup against Kiki.

It musy be very uncomfortable, and cannot be healed in a short time.

Yes, according to Swiss media, it is a toenail problem (not a real foot injury or something).

In my opinion, her scheduling is just wrong.
She plays too many tournaments... I was badly surprised to see her in the Sydney Draw after a full week of tennis in Perth.

She has built up her confidence and had very good match practices. Why not just going to Melbourne?


6th retirement in 12 months. As if her body says NO to that crazy scheduling plan...

This girl is very unlucky with injuries.
Nice move for her to retire as a precaution btw.
