Who Do You Think Tanked @ 2011 Eastbourne?

OK we know the week before a slam always has more tanks than the USA in Afganistan

but this week in Eastbourne it seems worse than usual because of the big WTA Richard Branson party on Thursday (which many players had special outfit design)

and because of the rain scheduled in the forecast that may not allow the SF to be played until Sunday

nobody want stuck @ Eastbourne when they should be @ Wimbledon preparing for the biggest tournament of the year

Well, the Williams Sisters never had any intentions to go far.
Play 2-3 matches and that's all they need to go a a massive killing spree in London.

I don't know. I think they would've tanked a final, but they definitely didn't tank the matches they lost. Otherwise, Serena wasted a lot of energy after failing to serve for the second set and fighting in the third.

And Venus...well. Venus really shouldn't lose to Daniela. That was a tank

Re: Who Do You Think Tanked @ 2011 Eastbourne?

Pavlychenkova & Azarenka Tanked for sure

Hoping Zvonareva, Ivanovic, & Radwanska get they rest and play much better @ wimby mostly Ivanovic. Radwanska & Zvonareva seem to be doing good even through they lost today and was excepted to lose but they at the same time can to better. Hope them three make a good run @ wimby

NONE OF THE ABOVE.

They all tried but weren't completely distraught when they lost.

Re: Who Do You Think Tanked @ 2011 Eastbourne?

No one tanked...players get every other day off at the major, that gives them time to recover. Now a player may not as cared enough to fight 100% when they are down because it is just Eastborune not a major, but I don't think any one of them went out and said lets just lose today so I can fly to London.

MARIA SHARAPOVA-RUS
Agnieszka Radwanska-POL
Li Na-CHN
JELENA JANKOVIC-SRB
HANTUCHOVA-SVK

"Congratulations Maria on winning the Career Grand Slam!!! "

Re: Who Do You Think Tanked @ 2011 Eastbourne?

Watch people get up in arms over this thread. The only tanking I would bet on was Serena - The differential in the way she played from 0-0 to 2-5 | from 2-5 to 5-5 | from 5-5 to 5-7 said she wanted to see how clutch she could play if she needed to. She knows damn well continuing to play at Eastbourne after having two three set marathons would not be in her best interest.

OTOH, I'm not sure I could say Venus TANKED, per se. More like she was losing and didn't have the fight in her to try and come back. If we assume Ana tanked everytime she lost... Well, that would make her a woman with MANY other priorities. Didn't see Li's match.

I don't think any of them tanked but at least some of them didn't give 100%

I think only Li tanked really...Vika just threw a hissy fit because of a diva that she is and simply quit

Re: Who Do You Think Tanked @ 2011 Eastbourne?

Serena, Aza, Zvonareva, Li all semi-tanked or just didn't give 100% at some point in the match.
Basically all the title contenders except Kvitova tanked. All the filler players are trying to snatch this mickey mouse title.
