So when is it absolutely accepatable for a player to quit a tennis match?

1. She is going into labor?
2. She is near death or drops dead?
3. Get's word that someone in her family has died?
4. Earthquakes or meteor showers?
5. Billions of ants crawling across the court?

Just wonderin...............

If they are injured and cant play anymore because of it. Kim at AO was injured but played through until the semifinal where she injured herself even more and couldnt go on. if your sick most of the time you can play on if its an early round youd thnk about pulling out but in a final it wouldnt cross my mind to pull out.

When one's about to die, that should be it or have a broken limb. Also to think one's a professional one should even be more wary about fucking up like that, but oh well, it's one's prerogative.

I think for it to be publicly acceptable, she's going to have to roll over something, or do something that is visiable to the media, audience, opponet, etc...

For it to be really acceptable? You should be okay with it, and that's all you should answer to.

You can't hold everybody to the same standard. Some people are tougher than others. Brett Favre of the Green Bay Packers (NFL) hasn't missed a start since he began in 1992. He's played with broken bones, the day after his father died, after his wife was diagnosed with cancer, his brother-in-law was killed, with the flu, and with serious injuries to his knees, ankles, back and throwing hand. I think a professional athlete has an obligation, in a big event, to make a 100% effort to play to the best of their ability. For each athlete, what they're capable of varies.

Heart arrhythmias would be a good reason to quit but the two players I know to have had them during matches -- Ivanisevic and Malisse -- both finished their matches.

In 1969, in a quarter-final match during the Australian Open, Rod Laver beat a German player named Herman Kempfer in four sets. What was incredible was that after the third set, Kempfer had a fatal heart attack. Kempfer, never one to shrink in the face of adversity, played the entire fourth set........STONE COLD DEAD!

Players should not retire until the crowd, TV viewers and commentators fully enjoy the perverse sight of someone suffering out there.

Give 'em some blood for God's sake!

When someone's injured and they say they're injured. I wouldn't go around saying I'm injured and keep playing like I'm not injured. If I say it, I'll mean it and I'll pull out the moment I say I'm injured.

It's about truth and integrity.

Simple, you retire when you feel that you can't go on.

Forgot to set the video for Lost.
