Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!
It rather looks to me as if her body doesn't allow her more which is even more concerning.
Endurance has never been her problem before the knees, nor did she have a history of so many retirements.
In the last year alone, the knnes, the wrist, now the back, even her toe was forcing her to retire in Palermo.
Just from your description it sounds similar to how Marion Bartoli was complaining when she announced her retirement.
