It's not very often I am critical of Vika, but I am going to be of critical of this.
There is nothing brave, smart, good about playing on. Nobody gains anything. The only reason she's done this is for PR
reasons, and it's obvious to see (this is her PR

If she retires she is critiqued and if she stays playing injured she is too. What's the best thing according to you? I admire her effort!
But sorry there is nothing good about this. I have responded to the above tweet criticising them. You don't gain any good PR
for finishing the match, you don't gain anything, in 3 months this just reads in the record books as 6-2, 6-1 loss.
And this is why I am so critical of people always just calling for players to play on or play saying the fans want to see matches. Exactly the fans want to see matches, this isn't a match, this is just a waste of everybody's time. As a fan I would rather Kvitova vs Kerber began about 30 minutes ago.
Stop listening to the media Vika, and listen to yourself!
