Womens Tennis - Is It So Hard To Believe Cheating Goes On?
Ok watching Caro just makes me think she has at least exaggerated her injury, if not flat out lied about it and its seriousness. I personally cant see how she can put her full weight on it striking tennis balls if it's as bad as made out?
This thread is not about Caro in particular (though it is her 'injury' that got me thinking), just that many posters on this board just will not accept that these girls do on occasion cheat, lie and push the rules. Every sport has it share of cheats, recent outings of rugby players deliberately fanking injuries with blood packets and a F1 driver deliberately crashing his car, just goes to show how far some already go in other sports. Yet there are many that still wont admit bartoli takes tactically deliberate time outs, for so called 'injuries'.
I honestly find it harder to believe the WTA is as 'white as white' as some would have you believe, than to believe certain players bend the rules and inturn cheat. With all the money on the line and the huge points, would it not be simpley nieve to think that some players don't on occasion 'cheat'.
To show im not biased i think chakvetadze did just this at wimbledon this year, she took a medical timeout in the 3rd set of her match with lisicki. To me i really don't think her arm warranted a timeout, but having lead and served for the match in the 2nd set and then going down a break in the 3rd, i feel she both took the timeout to try and calm herself and to use something to blame. Some may say she was just using the rules to her advantage or that she was genuinely injured, but in a sport so big and with so much on the line im willing to admit that cheating and rule bending goes on, are you?
