Re: Define "Choke" in WTA...
It's womens tennis. Everyone chokes, even Justine was choking yesterday. When a player is serving for the set or the match, she is under big pressure while her opponent has nothing to lose at that time and very often plays better than before. In womens tennis serve is not such a big factor (unless you are a Williams) so it's only natural that women choke more often than men. I do not think it's such a big deal as some posters tend to make out of it, however disappointing it is when it happens.
