I was there and saw this too. Michelle has some serious mental issues. I also saw her match against Parra and she also burst into tears and acted the same when she lost the second set in that match! She needs to realise that she can't win every match and not act like its the end of the world when she does lose.:speakles: Went through the whole day without seeing much drama until the end of this match, which was the last to finish. MLDB did well to fight back and win the second set. There was not a whole lot between them and they had a lot of long entertaining rallies. MLDB won a tense game to break back for 5-4 and let out a massive scream. Too bad, she lost serve in the next game and that was the match. After the last point she sank to her knees and started crying. After a few moments, she got up and smashed the racquet twice (dont know how it didnt break, she put everything into it :drool and went to shake hands. Then, she sat with her head in the towel for over ten minutes. Her coach tried to talk to her and finally she left to applause from quite a big crowd who were remaining to
watch the train wreckoffer their support. Hey at least she had her coach there to help her. Poor Khromacheva was also crying as she left, but there was noone there with her. :sad: Contrast with Krunic who got hammered but was still smiling when giving a postmatch interview and she even took pictures with fans.
It was a good showing for some of the juniors that TF likes to laugh at. MLDB was close to qualifying, Laura played a great game to qualify, Khromacheva and Krunic made the last round.
