Back in Brussels!

Ágnes has decided to play Brussels .

Not wise at all, but hopefully her back is feeling better than (we can pray). She will play a qualifier in the first round, which will be tough as they have already had 2 or 3 matches but as long as it's not Kanepi, this is definitely a winnable match, so best of luck, and above all let's hope she can stay healthy .

Her first round match will be Tuesday since it's against a qualifier.

Re: Back in Brussels!

She plays Voskoboeva (H2H 1:1 lost last match at AO'09 ).

Re: Back in Brussels!

Voskoboeva is a very winnable match although she is playing well lately...

Still, Ágnes has played pretty decently this year considering she has been injured and her draws have been pretty rough (in the second rounds) so winnable.

Here is the head-to-head. Can't believe Ágnes lost that AO match .

Re: Back in Brussels!

And they are playing not before 1 local time on Court 1. I will hopefully be able to follow it but I have class at 8:30 (2:30 local time) so I won't be able to see all most likely good luck Ágnes though! Please justify this decision to play!!!

Re: Back in Brussels!

So basically nothing good came out of this tournament for her. She didn't win a match and she probably aggravated her back injury. I guess she should have just rested.

Re: Back in Brussels!

Honestly, I wonder if she has a brain. In the darks of her slump, she would keep playing and doing nothing rather than see a sports psychologist, and now she is seriously injured but thinks she can just play through it. A back is something you CAN'T mess with. Just look at Dinara. This is really bad please skip Paris!!!

Re: Back in Brussels!

Maybe this ret. was merely a precaution?

A week without playing would have made little difference in the case of a chronic injury such as this one anyway.

I expect her to try to play at RG just the same.

Re: Back in Brussels!

i think she is just scared, like seriously. Doctors told her all the options, like operations, a divine intervention, etc... but its possible she can't, she won't play again.
Its really hard think with clear head after she spent so many years on court, fought with many setbacks.
I guess she'll try again, maybe not RG but Wimbledon or Budapest, but slowly she'll accept her situation.

Re: Back in Brussels!

But if she treated it early (which it still is I think) she can heal it. It's playing through and worsening it that is serious. Look, a lot of players have had operations and fully recovered. I'd rather she rest, but if she needs an operation it's worth it. It's not worth damaging her back (which will affect her for life) to play shitty tennis just because she's scared and indecisive.

Playing Roland Garros is pointless though even if she doesn't retire, she's not in form to play a major .

The rumors are that she withdrew though.
