View Full Version : Why did Safina even show up ?

She obviously knew she wasn't going to be able to play (although I find it strange that she was able to play 2 game 100%, but that's another story). It's totally unfair to the whole competition. Two years ago Serena played her 1st match heavily bandaged on her two legs, retired after one set. That's when Bartoli entered. Obviously they just show up for the money. The WTA should do something about it.

Maybe she thought once she got on the court she could play through it? Or maybe she just wanted the money?

Anyone's guess...

I don't think that is fair to say. Dinara came in as the #1 player and wanted to prove how good she is. I guess you will take every chance you have to get out there and play your match. This has nothing to do with rational behaviour and for the record. I think that is a good sign. I am a little indifferent to Dinara but the motivation to play here, even if you know that it might be impossible due to your injury, is right there.

She is no 1, so at least wanted to give it a go!! She tried, but injury won so she had to give up as much as she hated to as you could see by her :(

there was 100,000 reasons for her to just show up which is a drop of what she is making already so you can throw that logic out the window!

she wanted to give it a shot... id rock up at the championships with a broken leg even if it meant playing one point... id just want to be a part of it, she deserves it after her year

it just shows what influence money has.
It makes people show up.
But in sports its desire that makes you play really well.

I know it might be shocking, but some of these girls actually want to commit and play the tour outside of the slams. I'm sure Dinara was looking forward to avenging her 0-3 from last year

lol.

If she knew she was going to retire either way and those tears were fake, then she might as well try Hollywood where she could be the real #1. :worship:

she wanted people to feel sorry for her and also making an excuse why she's been playing like crap..now we can say ohhh she had a back injury, that's why she was losing to crap players;)
