Ani d Smashnova 1/6,7/6(6),2/4 RET??

Acapulco 2rd:What happened to Anna,she was UP 4/1 and 4/2 in final set but retired to heat??
having such a big lead and so close to the win,why would she retire just because of heat?? Also did she have any match pts in 2nd set??

I dont know... all I know is that Smashnaova seems to make a habit of making a match tighter than she should and eventually end up cramping ... Sad...

Heat illness is not because she couldn't stand the sun/weather. Anna was suffering and probably couldn't walk straight because of the heat. Something like what Michaella Krajicek had when she retired against Amelie Mauresmo.

Poor Anna. I saw her cramp once in Auckland too - it wasn't pretty.

Bullshyt. Anna retired at around almost close to 10 pm last nite if not later. What heat illness. It was in the low 70s.
If she cant play in a temperature that really isnt too bad what is she gonna do for the rest of the year.

I may be wrong, but I don't think Smashnova would have retired if she was in that Grand Slam finale. But I don't want to turn this into another Juju-bashing thread.

Anyway pretty weird to retire at 4-2 in the third with a HEAT illness, but oh well, well done Ani!

It's a bit like the score in the 2R of Moscow last year: M. Sharapova def. A. Groenefeld 1-6 1-4 ret. I felt sooo bad for ALG then, even though I wanted Maria to win.
