Petko got broke the first game of the match. As She began to walk towards her chair to get a drink before changing ends she seemed to go weak in the knees and used her racquet to prop herself up. She stood back up and continued to walk while looking down at her hands and shaking them. As she got to her chair she seemed to go weak in the knees again. She sat down with her hands obviously shaking. An MTO resulted. She said she felt fine just couldn't stop her hands from shaking. She'd use both hands to hold a bottle to take a drink. Physio took her blood pressure finding no issue. Petko decided to continue.
The first set ended 0-6. Her concerned coach tried to get her attention for an OCC, but she was too focused on herself with head and eyes down walking to her chair. During the sit down she had a granola or power bar that she was having trouble tearing open the package; a ballkid did it for her.
All throughout the second set the shaking continued but she tried to fight through it, but lost the set and the match 3-6.
No idea what the issue is.
