Re: WTA needs to add this rule to prevent another Charleston disaster.
well thats all well and good, but its not fair to players who are genuinley injured.
It seems to be a shoe-in on this board that whenever any player withdraws they arent "seriously" injured and can "play through it". They are athletes, if they are injured they CANT play, thats just something we have to accept.
Knocking off points for rankings or increasing penatly money is not the answer, because all the players put there bodies first! shortening the season and lowering the tournament amount is the answer.
