She was choking. She just told Tom Rinaldi that she left because she couldn't breathe and was basically panicking. DISRESPECTFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She didn't say chest pain.

Az is getting BLASTED for her little tactic.

Tennis is a JOKE when it comes to enforcing the rules. It's pathetic in that regard.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!

Re: Did Vika just admit she went to injury break, because of Stress?

then why did the tournament's doctor/trainer participate in a 10-minute injury timeout if there was no injury and they knew it?

Yes she did, but OFFICIALLY it was because her BACK & RIBS. Again, Sloane should use this as experience. Never lose to this girl again. lol.

Vika, you could have at least made up an injury.

Re: Did Vika just admit she went to injury break, because of Stress?

Well it was definitely honest. Only a stressed out idiot could admit to a tactical timeout at 5-4, when she had already called the trainer on stand-by at 3-2 for a legit injury. I mean how stupid do you have to be to admit a strategic MTO in a post match interview? That points to severe stress and brain malfunction.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Re: Did Vika just admit she went to injury break, because of Stress?

Totally. This is a learning experience for Sloane, but a definite black eye for Vika. Brad Gilbert and Mary Joe Fernandez are heated.

THIS is the kinda thing Tsonga was referring to yesterday. A panic attack creating a 10 minute delay in the semis of a major? Only in the WTA.

other top 5 players get away with not being drug tested so why not

She did. When the trainer, doctor, and referee came out she said it was because of her back and then she said it was because of her ribs so she could get treatment off court.

Re: Did Vika just admit she went to injury break, because of Stress?

Definitely lost some respect for Vika today...She openly admitted she took a timeout to breath and focus after a huge choke...I feel bad for Sloane, but the veterans are going to do this and you have to be ready...Serena did it yesterday too and other players do it as well...The Aussie crowd was not pleased at all and Vika is going to get a lot of shit for this...It makes Radwanska's and Sharapova's claims about her faking injuries seem more legitimate...Sucks for Sloane, but with more experience she will learn how to deal with these dirty tricksters...Unsportsmanlike behavior from Vika

Agreed.

I was one of the ones bashing Tsonga for his comments, then Azarenka goes and pulls this garbage.

I know these breaks are legal but it doesn't mean it's right.

Nadal once took an MTO because he said the banana he had eaten during the previous changeover break was stuck in his throat

He was actually choking on the banana though. It was odd for sure, but it happened.
