Question Retiring From Singles & Still Playing Doubles In XWTA Tournament ???

last week in XWTA Sydney P470, Ana Ivanovic cited injury to ditch Angie Kerber in the doubles draw but continued to contend the main draw singles until the FINAL

we all know that is VERY common on the XWTA when a player quits doubles and focuses on singles

but it seems that this week in XWTA Hobart MM 280, our own SAISAI-GOAT quit singles while leading Legion of Blondes member Johanna Larsson 63, only to still be competing in the doubles draw (she is on the OOP for Tuesday) with her new partner World #4 Cara Black

is this a common practice on the XWTA

It happens especially right before GS when players have minor injures and don't want to risk it for the coming GS.

I remember they gave her like 3 days to recover from her flu, nice gesture from the tournament.

It looks like Lucic is going to do it this week as well

Lisa has the worst luck with partners getting injured

Wasn't Petrova injured throughout most of 2013 and still playing almost full-time doubles schedule?

And she and Martina won the Miami doubles!

Judging from her results this year, Sabine is now a doubles specialist.

Re: Retiring From Singles & Still Playing Doubles In XWTA Tournament ???

IMHO it's less of a crap move when you stay in the doubles and drop singles, since dropping singles only affects you and not your partner.

Also, I don't know the extent of Saisai's injury. It's possible that with rest and treatment she may feel she can play. Or she may wait until the last minute to scratch in the hope of a miracle recovery.

I know in the juniors I see players (including minimiffed) who are legitimately unable to continue a match in the morning, but by the time their second match rolls around (USTA junior tournaments are usually double elimination) they are good to go. As an official and parent, we/I let the kid play.

(For example, a few months ago, mini miffed had a migraine, had to retire after the first set, went home, took drugs, came back four hours later and won his second match--all kosher under the rules).

I hope she makes the right call and is able to be in good form for the AO.
