Tell me WHY players like Venus compete when injured?
I'm a little pissed off that Venus played and lost in a match in which she was clearly injured. Knowing she had stomach problems, for no reason should she have wasted airfair to Dubai and then promptly lost her first match.
But Venus is not the only one. Several players have done this.
I can never understand what makes players go out into the tennis court and compete with serious injuries.
It doesn't make sense to me. It makes me wonder how much pressure tennis players are given to make sure they keep their commitments, injured or not.
Get better Venus, but damn don't go to Miami if this stomach problem hasn't completely healed.
