You can’t really say Justine was totally wrong or at fault for retiring due to an upset stomach. Just before she hit the last or next to last shot in the match, you could see the grimness or tightness in her face like she was trying to hold something in. This sign likely indicates she was very much trying to prevent an “accident” from happening.



An upset stomach is not a sports or painful injury, but the level of embarrassment that she would had faced in front of a worldwide audience would have been more devastating than most sport injuries.



When you are constipated, you are always thinking about that one wrong movement that is going to lead to that something rush before you make it to the bathroom. The relief is sometimes that you made it to the bathroom when it seemed at many moments that your pants were going to get “decorated.” An with Justine doing all the running around, who knows if this thought was in the back of her mind.



I don’t want to take away from Amelie’s victory or accomplishment because her current level of play and her level of play before the Australian Open final indicated she was the one to beat. Just wanted to imply that Justine may have been unfairly criticized for giving up when previous matches indicate that she is not the type to retire for no reason.

this horse has been beaten to death already....

but to point something out, if she was really in such a need to go to the bathroom, then why did she stick around on the court waiting for the ceremony, and during the whole ceremony, instead of running to relieve herself?

not saying that she wasn't in pain, but it better have been something better than constipation....

true! Believe it or not, I wanted to see Amelie win her first grand slam and was disappointed it wasn't without questions or a complete victory. Her level of play indicated she would have beaten Justine ill or not.

sorry, for beaten the already dead horse. Just coming back from a break and saw so many negative posts towards Justine and it seemed many didn't give her the benefit of a doubt.
