OMG Nicole Pratt played with a Hernia and special pressurised vest!

Just found out that Nicole Pratt had a hernia earlier in the year which hampered her for a few weeks in April during the US season.

Apparently she played one of those events with it whilst having to wear this special pressurised vest 24 hours a day, so that the hernia wouldnt suddenly bulge out.

It was either Key Biscayne or Charleston, either way Pratt is surely the only player to win a match with a hernia in WTA history! LOL

Could we also call her the dumbest player in WTA history for continuing to play?

Im sure Nicole sought her doctors advise before playing, so I wouldnt call her call her dumb! I actually heard this through one of the Fed Cup selectors, who commentates on Australian TV coverage
