I was in China for 6 weeks and never had so much as a smelly fart. The food standards there are not that bad and certainly no worse than many a greasy-soon dump I've been to for hang-over food in Western countries. And in Beijing there are more western-style restaurants, such as Pizza Hit and Papa Johns, than in many western countries.

The only thing to be wary of is the water, even if fully cleansed - different continents have different bacteria-mixes which can affect those with a sensitive stomach. But this would be a ubiquitous issue for world travellers such as these players so I'm not sure what the reoccurring issue is here, for a handful of players.

Agree it could be a water thing more than a food thing. Also Conor Niland got food poisoning in NYC at USO so this is not just a China thing.

Also regarding people saying "Why eat outside the hotel" tennis players are humans maybe they want to experience something else, something more local. Can't blame them they get to travel to amazing places so why just stick to the hotel food.

Oh so that's why she played in Wuhan.

Commentators obviously don't know she apologised and made up for it by playing in Wuhan

I wouldn't be surprised if she received a nice little sum for the "apology"...

Re: Kvitova & Pavs infected by stomach illness.

Maybe they do it on purpose so their player can win. Sabine said last year that she got food poison from Beijing and that it was very harmful.
