this match :hysteric:
Davis was up 63 *41 40/15 and then started her tank but Larsson didn't accept it at all and pushed this match to 2 TBs :happy:

So what are the rules like? What if Davis had won 3 and 2 and then would have traveled to Paris to play FOQ tomorrow...

Had to be out of Strasbourg by 4 PM CET today or would have been withdrawn from RG automatically

so a win and an immediate withdrawal before 4pm ala Azarenka would've worked, right?

She would have needed a medical certificate from the Strasbourg tournament doctor (that she had to retire/withdraw for medical reasons) and clearance from the FO tournament doctor.

I'm glad she lost, but she almost made a mess of things. :lol:

It's so funny how bitter these Italians are towards young Americans that beat their biggest hope Camila Giorgi. Sucks to suck. :hug:

Oh shut up.

Davis is a rude and unpolite bitch.

Screaming on each point, mostly when it is an unforced of her opponent.

She also tries to steal each point, mostly when it is clearly in.

And, the most important thing, she is a pusher.

FYI, Giorgi beated her 7-5, 7-5 lately.

So, once again, shut up.

Of course some will try to belittle yet another crushing victory for the Swedish Sweetie. But the JoJo mojo is rolling again!

I doubt Davis tanked that match. If she did, she is retarded. As a young player, you win them, when you can. That way you earn direct entry into the Slams.

agreed...you don't tank matches in such flipflop manner, where 1 accidental point could ruin your masterplan.:lol: I bet both of these wanted to win and at the end more experienced dirtballer prevailed

I'm not attacking your fave, just pointing out how unhealthy it is for you to hate someone because they embarrassed beat Camila Giorgi.

Suckmila is quoted as Exhibit A. :tape:

That's kind of pathetic Jo-La could barely beat her in a tank. :sobbing:

Jo-La saw through her pathetic tank effort and made sure the fans got to see a competitive match.

That's Jo-La. Always thinking of others. Just thinking about how wonderful she is makes me tear up. :crying2:

You earn entry in slams by qualifying at this age. :lol: I believe this is the first time she's earned entry into a GS by her ranking and she is not gonna miss it for a MM r2. :lol:
Furthermore, if you look at her draw in RG, you'll realize she made a great choice :wavey: if she actually tanked and can beat Larsson with ease, Voegele, Savinykh, Cohen & co are all more than beatable for her.

I hear you but she probably isn't the first person to do this and won't be the last. What I don't get is if a player knows he or she is in Grand Slam qaulfying why they bother competing in a tournament the same week?

Lauren made what? 2k? Not sure that's even worth it although she did get some solid pratice time in on the clay.

And i am telling you, once again, i dont like her cos she has just a disgusting attitude on court.

The same way i dont like Babos, Wickmayer and many other players.

A lotta players beated my fave, i dont hate any of them.
