Re: 100K Poitiers 1R Vakulenko lost to Domachowska 3:6 ret.
I was there at the match. She had both her ankles wrapped. She could play good, especially her serve and returns, but she had problems with rallies, especially to the net. She won easily 6-3, but obviously her right ankle was painful at the end. She was sad that she had to retire. The audience applauded her. I hope she is okay, I could not see her after.
That injury lasts since the semis of Quebec, and she had a similar one at the other ankle last year in Birmingham. Let's hope that's not too serious.
And by the way, the score was 6-3 for Julia in first set, then she retired.
