Maria you may be ONLY 18 but can't you decide for yourself what you will do on the court? You must have your father's say in how your body feels to you ?? You feel pain but need his approval to retire?
So what if Yuri didn't give the go head for his pupil to retire?
Why are you so filled with hate you have no human empathy or sympathy for Maria's injury? Why is it that you have no shame?
And presumably Yuri knows that Maria's natural instinct is to play on to the very end, whatever pain she's in - just like in the Molik match in Zurich, or the Cheverknadze match in LA. No doubt he was worried this would worsen the injury, and he advised her to come off. Also if she'd won and had to retire AFTER the match, it would have left the tournament with no final.
Yuri stop PREDICTING tennis outcomes. I wonder what they did before the match started? Discussed which game she was going to withdraw at?
What language do you speak? In English PREDICTING means trying to evaluate what the outcome will be beforehand. I think the word you are searching vainly for is DECIDING.
Of course this is not only another slander but a stupid slander. If there was any plot for Maria to retire she would have done it BEFORE the match, like the Williams do - so it doesn't count as a loss on the record
For shame... For complete shame.
How a supporter of the players who drop out of the most matches of any players on the circuit, DARE post something like this, I can't imagine!
