I also applaud her and she has nothing to be ashamed of. With all the odds against her she still gave it her best shot and at some moments it appears should pull it off. It was painful to watch but I'm relieved that she can go home now knowing that she tried her best.
She should just go home, put her feet up, relax and attend a few fun functions. She should just take it very easy and not play another tournament until she is definately healthy. She already has a major for the year already and another is still ahead, therefore she has nothing to worry about. Move right along Serena because you are still ahead of the pack!!! Best wishes and a speedy recovery!!!
It is more important that people believe in our integrity than agree with our opinions.
