On this does anyone know the official rules. Because they say for them Sumyk sent out a very mixed message. I am like 90% sure though that you cannot go onto on court coaching and tell a player to retire after the Wozniacki scandal in Luxembourg 2009.

I wanted to let you guys know that I am pulling out of the Sony Open this year because of my injured foot. I’m obviously heart-broken over this as I won't be playing for the second time in a tournament that I love. I'm humbled by all the well wishes I've been receiving during this tough time. And with your support there is no doubt I will be back on the court soon. Be in touch. - V
It's been over a week since her last match, yet she still hasn't withdrawn from Monterrey. That means she probably hasn't discovered/found a solution to the cause of the injury because if so and she was getting treatment I have to assume she'd withdraw knowing she won't be ready in just two more weeks.
