so what do people make of Azarenka's tweets?

sorry if this should go on the twitter thread.

Hopefully in the future there will be more protection for players rights

If WTA rules were different then I could have focused on getting healthy, but I could not afford another zero pointer on my ranking.

I was conflicted and disappointed to withdraw from Rome... I tried my hardest but I wasn't healthy going into the tournament...

Re: so what do people make of Azarenka's tweets?

i don't understand. she has to play 4 of the 5 premiers, so she can still play 4 by going to tokyo. seems she just wanted to avoid tokyo and that stuff about zero pointer is a smokescreen. or have i read the rules wrong?

Yes you could. It happened before. You just didn't want to.

Re: so what do people make of Azarenka's tweets?

true great players take zero pointers and know their health comes first. not only that they know ranking is just a number, you just go out and beat the players against you whether you are 1 or 50 in the world.

I don't understand what she means by she couldn't afford to take another zero pointer. She already has loads of points on her ranking. This whole deal was shady business. Either way I hope she really isn't seriously injured.

Ithink if a TOP 10 player Enter in a P5 they get a zero if they withdraws...

Re: so what do people make of Azarenka's tweets?

Also a day after Wozniacki retired with upper respiratory illness she's tweeting from Monaco with McIlroy.
Add to that that Aga lost to a nonVika.

Its almost like they all got together to make a statement to the WTA.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Queen Vulture got throughly outplayed by a random chick who owns her. She doesn't care much about making statements. She had a chance to whore more ranking points and money and she would've done it if she wasn't such a mediocre player.

Was she supposed to stay in Rome until the tournament ends?

Some one is trying to have their cake and bonus money too.........

Are players really that afraid of a zero pointers on their ranking. I guess when you are trying to hold on to your ranking for dear life those zeroes matter.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

She quit because she was scheduled the next day on an outer court, which is a slap in the face to the worlds #1 player.

What statement could be made, they still have the top 3 stars in tournament. No one notices that they are gone or misses them
