I think Asarenka let herself get caught in the "damned if you do, damned if you don't" tornado. There was a lot of idiotic media and public crap when she didn't play injured and I think she allowed it to influence her somehow in a "they think I can't play when I'm hurt - I'll show 'em" way. I hope that now she goes back to her genuine stubbornness - doing what she sees as best for herself. Period.
