Mononucleosis it seems, according to her coach Jorge Todero.
Apparently out for the rest of the season :sad:

She really didn't seem herself in that last match.

Hope she can do something in Australia.

Poor Christina. :hug:

How frustrating to have a good season cut short by something like this.

That explains her weak perfomances over the year. Hopefully she can make a full recovery and it doesn“t become chronic. What a mess of year with Pennetta, Petkovic, Zvonareva, Kanepi, McHale and many more missing so much time or being hindered by injuries in their perfomances.

Wow that's awful for her.
Many players never really recover completely from it.
Hope she has some mild form of desease.

Ajla Tomljanovic was diagnosed with mono right before Australian Open and she still hasn't recovered completely from it.

Horrible illness

So many players have been hit with it

Well I thought her performance against Bertens was absolutely awful, so this explains a lot...

She was lethargic and her shots did not have much zip.

Hope it does not turn into somehting serious.
I believe Federer had this before

Ancic never recovered


Depends though if it's a mild form she should be ok

I keep my fingers crosses.
She is the American who has proven herself to carry the American flag after the WS retire, if she does not recover, it would a major setback for the future of American women tennis.

Not that she was going to tbe the greatest player, but constantly haveing our hope dashed going back to the drawing board is not a good feeling.
And that is what have been happening the last 5 years. We can't seem to get traction with the young players.

Damn, that's especially bad for someone with her gamestyle who relies on her stamina.

Not a fan, but hope she gets well soon.

Why do tennis players are more prone to mononucleosis and "food poisoning" than the average ? Hum...

Oh wow. I hope she isn't out for as long as Soderling has been lately.

Mono is really hurting a lot of players their career... :sad:

Soderling is an example (I know its ATP but still), he hasn't played for a year now.

American No. 3 out in late-season McF--

No, but this is sad to hear. It's not one of those nagging injuries that make you question a player's fitness or toughness. Hope she's back for Melbourne.

I had mono some years ago, but I was back to normal in maybe a month. That said, at its worst, I had barely enough strength to get from my bed to the bathroom and back. I had to hold on to objects or lean on the wall just to not fall down. It was really awful for a few days. I hope she gets better soon.

Hope the USO feels bad for calling her McFail now....

This really does explain her lack of energy and losses lately

That expression is really unfair to Christina.

WE have to thank US Senator and former presidential candidate John McCainfor making the expression popular in the US political vernacular.
I believe it was picked up and dust off to unfairly force it onto Christina McHale because their last names start with "Mc"

Yeah. I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with that and all to do with her tendency in the past couple of years of blowing double break leads in deciding sets.

Sucks for her though. Hopefully she makes it back from this in good health.

Well, she is not the first American player, male or female with reputation to blow leads.
If her last name had not been McHale, she would not be referred as McFail

Yes, because it actually fits well into the sounds of her name. You only have to change one sound in her name for it to fit. She is known for blowing double break leads. It has simply nothing to do with McCainfor; I'm sure 98% of the people who call McHale McFail have no idea who he even is. I'm also similarly sure she'd be called McFail even if McCainfor never existed. Connecting a pun on McHale back to him borders on bizarro world. Sometimes 1+1 just equals 2, there's no hidden factor going on behind the scenes.

One of the suggestions is the amount of travelling they do and the toil that it takes on their bodies

agree that's a teen's disease aka "kissing" disease but maybe tennis players don't kiss? Hum..and you are protected all your life after illness in your youth..
so,i don't understand .
That's my job to diagnose it .

they get mono because it is the most stressful individual sport apart from cycling. You really have to control your stress levels and your mind with the grueling schedule in this sport.

Most people have contracted the mononucleosis virus by the time they're adults. However, it doesn't affect people until they become run down through stress. It's understandable that most tennis players would come in contact with the virus given all the travel. Add to this the physical and mental stress of being a professional athlete, and it's easy to see why tennis players are susceptible to the disease.

Most people recover fully after 3 months. Hopefully, Christina will be ready in January.

We will never find out what real impact mono had on Roger. You can say he did recover, but did he really? We will never know how those last several years would have been for him if he hadn't had mono....
