Serena needs to retire

A strain is much different from a cramp and it just wasn't meant to be. Even at grade 1, its a 2 week recovery time. Valiant effort, Serena but no need to jeopardize long term in trying to win this year's tournament. I know its easy for me to sit here and just say retire but I'm talking to a friend of mine now who is a sports physiotherapist who said if it is a strain she can do more damage. Let Daniela have the win by retirement and recover.

Re: Serena needs to retire

I think she should at least try starting the match again. If she loses the 2nd set and is still injured, then retire. Otherwise she might win this match and have a day off and feel much better. Who knows?

Let's see how she looks when they go back out before jumping to conclusions.

Re: Serena needs to retire

She looks like she's still favoring the leg. I just hope that she doesn't do more damage.

Re: Serena needs to retire

they just confirm that Serena could threaten her career if she continues to play (according to doctors).

Re: Serena needs to retire

She's been told not to play! If she insists on playing, I hope that she finishes this tiebreak with a win and gets off the court.

Re: Serena needs to retire

According to MJFernandez, the calf is not responding to treatment. Doctor warns her that she could worsen the injury and threaten future performance. Richard says they should end it. Serena insists on playing.

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Re: Serena needs to retire

Well I certainly wouldn't go by whatever richard says. He's always trying to retire the sisters. I don't know what his problem is.

If she wins this then she will get retired probably the next match..so annoying.

Re: Serena needs to retire

Well there you heard it. THE DOCTOR said if she continues she risks further damage and her CAREER! Richard said it was time to bag it in but Serena valiantly wants to fight on. Its Serena's decision but geez Serena. Even if you win this how on earth does she think she's gonna fare against Justine? Is she trying to get the ranking points? I don't get it.
