^ Shes number 1 now and she has a new mentality now plus she also knew that bartoli had retired and wanted to give the crowd a match otherwise it would of been two retirements its very good fighting spirit and positivness from a her. I do not particularly like azarenka I think shes a bit arrogant but does have a nice personality of court and today she has shown try grit and determination with the injury and fighting on.

I noticed people here and on MTF too believe player is faking an injury when (s)he is not playing on a wheelchair or at least retiring afterwards, regardless the score... so actually player is always faking when there is no sign of limitation after the MTO despite the fact that injury timeout is there for healing the injury not for making it worse.

:facepalm: Are people here really incapable of debating without attacking strawmen?

No-one (well, apart from maybe a few Radwanska fanboys) is suggesting she faked the injury (as in, that she faked that fall and/or didn't hurt herself at all). The point is that she was probably being a hypochondriac and overreacting, and that most other players in the top 10 would probably have just got on with it with minimal fuss after getting it strapped up, and would've not done the constant grimacing and had such a drama-queen reaction right at the end of the match, for such a (in all likelihood) relatively minor injury.

Sorry but I find that hard to believe. The tank against Bartoli at the WTA Championship shows how little respect Azarenka has for the paying public.

The OP is right though. It is absurd to suggest that a player leading by a set and 1-0 would fake an injury. Nothing to gain by it.

Really? If you do some searching on this board you'll find that this sort of stuff (faking, over-dramatizing, whatever) has at some point been said here about almost every player in the top 20.

People who are Azarenka bashers either don't like her (for whatever reason), or they are jealous that she has found her 'groove' and will challenge anybody playing right now. If her injuries can be kept to a minimum, she has the grit, the fitness, and the confidence to go deep this year.

I am not an azarenka fan but I get annoyed when people called someone a faker for an injury it may of not been severe but I have rolled an ankle and I know what its like, 5 months of the season I missed last year, meaning I could not defend the mixed doubles title me and my partner won and I could not play in the mens singles and its horrible and I would never wish an injury on anyone, if Vika is truley faking I have lost all respect for her but I very much doubt she is and I hope its not too bad.

Wow, I'm amazed how quickly the hounddogs have descended on Vika. Just a week ago she was flavour of the month, now someone concocts a frankly bizarre story about faking an injury while she was getting so little resistance from her opponent that the biggest threat to her winning the match was that she might fall asleep between the change of ends and get defaulted on a time penalty, and dozens of trolls jump on the bandwagon. But the funniest of all are those who concede that the injury was genuine, but think that it makes sense to suggest that she was dramatizing it's severity. For what possible purpose????

Other than at the very start of the season, I imagine players are almost always carrying a small injury of some kind or other. So it's not really a question of faking an injury but of calling a trainer when one is not absolutely required. Certainly there are more instances of players calling trainers when they are behind than when they are in front. Sometimes that is pure coincidence, sometimes the player is behind because of the injury but I don't doubt there are occasions when the timing of a MTO is aimed at upsetting the rhythm of the opponent. Nadal calling for the trainer to adjust the dressing on a blister on his foot before Federer served for the 1st set in the final of Roland Garros last year was pure gamesmanship.

But, once again, the suggestion that a player would do it when leading a set and a break, as Azarenka was, is ridiculous.

I have to agree with you. Because it does happen and it is so wrong because its gamesmanship, but Azarenka was thrashing radwanska so it was definately not a ploy to ruin her rythme, but some people cannot grasp the fact of this.

Dear I think Aga's in Dubai now, not Poland. But good try.

Anyway, yes one would have to be lunatic to think that Vika faked an injury. I agree completely with dsanders in that most of the hate stemmed from potential melodramatics. And likewise, I think it's lunatic for anyone to think that Aga and Vika's friendship is going to take some unholy spiral downward now after that handshake. Aga played awful and was clearly pissed, Vika definitely knew that too despite the fact that she herself was playing incredibly well. I can almost guarantee that by now Aga's apologized in some way for her rude behavior.

How astute of you. You're absolutely correct. In fact - based on the testimony of various posters here - it's apparent that every time a player seems to get injured they're faking it. I guess it's a "good" thing that no real injuries happen during matches.

Because the crowd initially were routing/cheering for Radwanska. I can see what that poster means. If she could "act" the hero, then she could get the crowd on her side, which she did (which is very rare for Vika).

I'm not saying she faked her injury, it just wasn't as bad as she made it out to be. She very rarely falls over and I think it was a shock to her that she fell over and it was embarrassing, so she made a "mountain out of a molehill". That's why she reminds me of Djokovic - they have similar patterns to them - both disliked by the public for their on-court behaviour and both over-dramatising on court :shrug:

That's my take on it.

I don't think the more rational of us are saying she faked the injury. Of course she fell by accident. And of course she was hoping/trying to make sure it wouldn't happen again (with the wrapping of her ankle and the concern on her face). That's understandable.

What some are saying though, is that she exaggerated the extent of the injury in how she limped around the court and carried herself after, etc.

Now of course, anyone that twisted or sprained their ankle would be concerned and test it out on court (and/or play on adrenaline as it's been mentioned). Absolutely. I'm not going analyze Vika's personality, childishness, facial expressions or anything else, as others did. I'll stop here. And I also agree Aga was awful, and couldn't take advantage. But to repeat; based off of how Vika ran down balls, some doubt the extent of Vika's injury and her related on court demeanor (not the injury itself).

I guess with Vika's history, she doesn't get the mulligan as others would in this situation??

It's great to see Azarenka play on and win, definitely a sign of her new found status, champions often play through injury and illness to win, think of Sampras when he won Wimbledon in 2000, he suffered a shin injury in his 2nd round match against Kucera, played on and won when it really looked like he might have to retire in that match. He had to take injections before every match (cortisone wears off after an hour or so), and didn't train at all between matches, and in the final was slightly hobbling towards the end of the match but still got the job done against Rafter in 4 sets.

Look at Djkoovic now, used to retire every five minutes but now can play for 6 hours and still win! Aazrenka will prove to be a worthy number 1 and I hope she plays the full final today.

As for Radwanska, I saw the "handshake" and it was quite pathetic, but she was caught up in the moment. Radwanska might have won if her serve and forehand wasn't so powderpuff for a so called top 10 player.

Vincey!
Feb 19th, 2012, 01:55 PM
Was she faking an injury? No I seriously doubt so, she was probably injured to me. Was she making it a bit too obvious? Maybe, you never know really. She's the new number one hasn't lost a match all year it's easy for her to keep her confidence that when she's not 100% healthy to show it off maybe too much so if she loses people and herself will know it was due to injury and not because she was outplayed. We've seen players like Serena kinda doing that, Bartoli is the queen to exaggerate her injuries as well. lol It's not really a bad thing, it's just dramatizing the match and whatever the outcome is she wouldn't have looked bad at all. It's fair.

technically it was 6-2 1-1 ;)

Personally I don't think she faked that injury.
I can agree she was a little bit overreacting, perhaps...but then again we don't know how she was feeling after the fall. She could've been in real pain.
I can't really blame Aga for the handshake, she was probably pissed cause she couldn't focus enough to beat injured Vika. And we all know she is a hot-head person. I'm sure it's not a big deal for Viktoria.

And please guys don't judge Aga's fanbase based on few trolls.
