Let's add Henrietta Nagyova's name to the Hall of Shame -- for quitting when her opponent is only two games from winning a match outright. I hate it when players do this -- unless they're unable to walk. "A pain in the foot," especially one that's been there all week as she said, is no reason to quit. Very unprofessional.

God give her a break! The girl can quit if she has to. Why would she have to play two more games, which can last 10 minutes, when she is hurting in her foot?? Just to make it seem like she's a GOOD sport? She's not playing tennis for anyobdy else but herself and maybe her loved ones. This is not an event that has to do with being a good or poor sport.
BTW, congrats Dinara!:bounce:

I heard she twisted her ankle. I think it'd be pretty hard to continue. I dont think it's being a poor sport if you'd rather not choose to play on one leg!
