Question Was Martina tired?

What I've noticed since her comeback was that, she's still having a lot of trouble stringing a lot of match wins within a week. I've been told and I've seen pictures in which she looked very tired in her match against Mauresmo.

Could this be the reason why she lost? Is this something she needs to work on in the long run?

Also, her talent and skill is there but I think we're expecting too much from her. She hasn't done this playing and training in a lot of tennis in over 3 years!

My guess is her body is still not used to it.

Maybe Amelie is just better?

I dont think Sam was making excuses, he didnt say Amelie didnt deserve to win but Martina has lost fairly easy after a couple of matches into the tournament since Tokyo

I think she got a wild card for IW
Why play there if she is already so tired ?


I think Sam is making excuses... You must not have read his comments lately

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Exactly.

I can't see why it's a crime to ask what went wrong with a player

Dude, Sam was asking for other people's opinions. No need to bash him - or Martina - for that.
