Well here is how I look at it, and please, you can comment but don't be rude because I'm just stating my opinion ok!
I believe Anna's injury is real, I don't think she would fake it for the purpose of not having to lose yet another match. However, I think she should of done one of two things: 1) Finish the match... I mean, come on, it was only one game. If it was on her serve, then just serve and let whoever she was playing against hit 4 winners and if it was on the other player's serve, just let her hit a couple of aces and register a real loss instead of retiring at 5-2 on the third set which makes a player look bad or option 2) Quit when she got hurt... if she was so worried about her ranking or her career or whatever and didn't wanna risk further injury, she shouldn't of let it get to the point where she was playing in tears.... IMO it's just stupid to play in that amount of pain so she should of just quit as soon as she felt that much pain, not wait til she was 5-2.... and it's not like her injury just happened, as some of you pointed out, she asked for the trainer as early as the first set!
