Chakvetadze, a fast-improving 18-year-old with a solid all-around game, was hurt much worse by a pulled left groin that she suffered in the second set and then had tightly wrapped halfway through the third set.

She led the third set, 2-0, before her injury grew worse and she had to call timeout for a trainer to wrap her leg with a 3-2 lead. From there, Sharapova took the lead, 4-3 and Chakvetadze burst into tears out of frustration.

Unable to move well, she nevertheless went for broke on her shots and stayed in the match. Sharapova held serve to take a 6-5 lead and then she broke Chakvetadze at 30-40 to take the match. Chakvetadze walked off the court in tears at the end of the match, which lasted 2 hours, 18 minutes.

"I was really upset because I felt I could have won the match,'' Chakvetadze said. "It was tough for me to push off the leg and run, but I stayed in there because I thought maybe Maria would make mistakes.

"She didn't.''

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

She was really crying up a storm during that Sharapova match. Too bad for her that she's injured.

That explains the tears we saw in the photos. It's a shame for Anna and the fans in Toronto, because a Vaidisova-Chakvetadze matchup would have been great to see.

Saw Anna play in Indian Wells and was very impressed. She is very talented, has beautiful form, and moves well. She is a star in the making. Hopefully she'll recover completely from this injury in time for the U.S. Open.

9 days ago I saw Perry retire from a singles qualifying match in Los Angeles. She lost the first set 6-0, called the trainer, had a short conversation, and retired. I couldn't really see anything wrong with her. Maybe it was an illness.
