She can't give up just like that! She's devoted 20 years of her life to tennis.
What makes me mad is that there is absolutely no improvement in her results since 2007. She has never played a 10k - why not play one in Italy to get some confidence? Oh, and her on court attitude is as bad as ever. I'd expect her to have "grown up" by now, she's 27 already.
I hate saying this, but I have to give up. It's been nice being her biggest fan for the last 4 years, but everything has an end. I made this decision because her losses and chokes just make me hate tennis (not for long, but still) and I think it's just not worth it.
I still think she's a great person, and wish her all the best in her career. I'll still be following her of course, but not as it was before this day.
She's currently one place out of the main draw in Biberach but I would prefer Maka to play qualies just to get a bit of momentum going because it's a very strong draw with 4-5 top 100 players in action.

"I will now call her LP Hlavackova - low percentage Hlavackova. I hope she doesn't drive a car the way she drives her groundstrokes!"
