It was raining and the match had to stop, I guess Alona didn't want to come back for 2 pts (it was deuce).

Re: Berlin 3r: Ana IVANOVIC [12] def. Alona BONDARENKO 63 50 ret'd

this is what i call a bad loser. it was 5-0 40-40 and she retired? WTF! if she was that injured she could just of stand there and let 2 points more!

Bad loser!

Bad loser!
Bad loser? I'd call it a good sport. There was no point in getting back on the court again later today just to play a couple of pts more or even waiting for tomorrow (forecast is horrible).

Well done Ana, quite a performance!
Aljona. good luck in Rome!

Surely she should be fined for this?

Ana. But Alona.

It's a fair decision from Alona. She's probably tired anyway.

I'm sure Ana would rather go home than wait around the venue for however long just to play two points.

I wonder what they're going to write as reason for retirement on the WTA draw though

Bad loser!
I see this as a nice gesture from Alona to concede. It was raining and the match got suspended again, why make Ana wait out a long rain delay?

Re: Berlin 3r: Ana IVANOVIC [12] def. Alona BONDARENKO 63 50 ret'd

i think its a good thing what shes done why bother going back on court having a 5 or 10 minute warm up play 2 points cus she obviously has mentaly given it up and have to go off and then theres a lull before they get the next match on and before you know it they have wasted 20 - 25 mins when its not raing for 2 points at least now the organisers can concentrate on the next singles match (and alona has played like 12 matches in a week and a half including doubles!)

A sore loser she is. The WTA has to penalize such an anti sport.
