An appropriate set of punishments would be stripping her of all Titles for the 2012 season, forfiture of all Prize money in the 2012 Season, elimination from the Bonus Pool and a two year ban from Tennis would certainly demonstrate to the Tour how serious Withdrawing from tournaments for illness truly is!
This business of players Withdrawing from tournaments due to illness, injury and fatigue simply has to stop!
Yeah... And also the accussations of players needs to stop... You know... Speculating that someone is retiring and withdrawing because of being "extremely injured" is also a crime... If you have no proof, then it means that they are indeed injured/ill and have the right to reitre.
Ana Ivanovic, Maria Sharapova, Zvonareva, Kuznetsova, Makiri, Vika, W sisters, Sarita, Domi, Halep, Dinarik tnx for all!
