Pretty much none of my other favorite sports have this problem,but let's take a hypothetical scenario,that's not totally 100% analogous,from boxing.Obviously,if a boxer cancelled a title fight,claiming injury,and then went off to the beach with his gf,lots of folks would be understandably furious...and a champ could even be stripped of his title if fraud were reasonably proven

I can understand where the WTA would want to discourage cavalier commitment to events...and punish selfish,bitchy divas who cancelled on whims.To me,it's not rocket science: You plan a schedule that you KNOW you can maintain...if you'd like to add something,then good luck getting a WC,but you don't get a free pass on skipping the event you'd committed to just because you're more worn out from playing the previously-unplanned you've got to take that into account when contemplating adding something on.

If you're merely sore and wanna cancel,TOUGH SHIT!Rugby and hockey players get plenty sore and manage to carry on.If you have a legit yet minor injury,but one with a fair chance of getting exacerbated,then I have no beef with exaggerating the severity of it somewhat to skip a tournament.To ME,that's in an entirely different spirit than completely concocting a B.S. phantom injury that doesn't exist.

Though I wish that she scheduled a bit more prudently,I'm proud of Caro for holding on to her integrity and honor in that area.It's a stark contrast with certain others who will go nameless here

@Protoss and CW,thanks for the scheduling info

When the Lizards play their Trump card, humanity suffers

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
