Please people, and none of them (maybe one if I saw wrong) were even where she was one game away.
She has retired 11 times in her career, and most are within the first two games of the second set.
Here they are:
Magui Serna (ESP) L 1-6 0-1 ret
Maria Vento-Kabchi (VEN) L 3-6 1-2 ret, and the very next tournament...
Daniela Hantuchova (SVK) L 3-6 ret
Lina Krasnoroutskaya (RUS) L 2-6 0-1 ret
Tina Pisnik (SLO) L 3-6 2-2 ret
Elena Dementieva (RUS) L 2-6 0-2 ret, and the very next tournament...
Marion Maruska (AUT) L 6-7(6) 0-4 ret
Tamarine Tanasugarn (THA) L 1-6 1-4 ret
, and the very next tournament...
Abigail Spears (USA) L 7-6(4) 6-7(7) 1-3 ret
Viktoriya Kutuzova (UKR) L 3-6 3-3 ret
Anastasia Myskina (RUS) L 6-0 1-6 0-4 ret
Count them, THREE, and three two consecutive tournaments in which she retired, not to mention this year's back problems where she withdrew from a few tournaments because of it.
