Chakvetadze, a fast-improving 18-year-old with a solid all-around game, was hurt much worse by a pulled left groin that she suffered in the second set and then had tightly wrapped halfway through the third set.

She led the third set, 2-0, before her injury grew worse and she had to call timeout for a trainer to wrap her leg with a 3-2 lead. From there, Sharapova took the lead, 4-3 and Chakvetadze burst into tears out of frustration.

Unable to move well, she nevertheless went for broke on her shots and stayed in the match. Sharapova held serve to take a 6-5 lead and then she broke Chakvetadze at 30-40 to take the match. Chakvetadze walked off the court in tears at the end of the match, which lasted 2 hours, 18 minutes.

"I was really upset because I felt I could have won the match,'' Chakvetadze said. "It was tough for me to push off the leg and run, but I stayed in there because I thought maybe Maria would make mistakes.

"She didn't.''

She was really crying up a storm during that Sharapova match. Too bad for her that she's injured.

That explains the tears we saw in the photos. It's a shame for Anna and the fans in Toronto, because a Vaidisova-Chakvetadze matchup would have been great to see.

Saw Anna play in Indian Wells and was very impressed. She is very talented, has beautiful form, and moves well. She is a star in the making. Hopefully she'll recover completely from this injury in time for the U.S. Open.

9 days ago I saw Perry retire from a singles qualifying match in Los Angeles. She lost the first set 6-0, called the trainer, had a short conversation, and retired. I couldn't really see anything wrong with her. Maybe it was an illness.
