I was watching the King/Flipkins match tonight and when the cameras would show Sabine clapping I kept thinking she had some sort of injury to her right hand.

Was I seeing things or does she have arthritis now in her fingers? It's not too surprising. I'm sure a lot of retired players probably have problems because of the grind of playing years on the tour but I was just curious.
