What the heck did Gavrilova do here?



7:05, she's matchpoint down, does a ball toss, doesn't serve, leaves the racquet in the ground and sits in a linesman's chair, Puchkova is like 'What the...?'

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Obviously Puchkova was doing something on the other side of the net that disturbed her.

2016 Title(s):
Suicide: Strasbourg

Then that is one hell of a counter strike

It's their home tournament, match between two Russians, each player must have had at least 30 people supporting them who are friends/family

Re: What the heck did Gavrilova do here?

What the hell? It appears that she's having a hissy fit because she's losing, but when she's coming back, she has a big grin on her face..

* 2008 * 2012 * Maria Sharapova * 2004 * 2006 *
* Ivanovic * Watson * BMS * Gavrilova * Voskoboeva * Robson * Kvitova * Mladenovic * Lisicki * FutureGoat Konjuh


Elena Baltacha. Never forgotten.
