She's been taken away on a wheelchair.

Everything was fine until 5-2 and then boom, she was gone.

Really unfortunate end to the match. :sad: Especially when up by such a scoreline when she looked set to win in front of the home crowd. She was defending SF points too.

The tennis quality was up and down, the end of both sets was a bit more exciting because Tomljanovic was fighting back (she obviously plays better from behind), but I wonder how much of it in set 2 was due to Qiang cramping. Very nice show of sportsmanship from Ajla who immediately rushed over with a towel and started stretching her out when she saw her opponent was hurt.

Also what was the camerawork? The disco lighting and dramatic slow zoom out while Q writhed around in pain.... :hysteric:

Wang Qiang led 4-0 in the second set and started showing signs of cramping - squatting and flexing the legs. Had to be wheelchaired off :sad:

Very nice of Ajla to come over immeditately to check on her before the physios came out and bring her the ice packs.

What exactly happened? Wang was leading and then cramped to the point of being unable to play? Sounds like Peng in that US Open semifinal :sad:.

Nice of Tomljanović to help her :).

Feel bad for Wang. Looks like some extremely painful cramps. I was scared she might pass out. :sad: Hopefully, she'll be ok.

Looking forward to Ajla vs Riske.

She started shaking out the right leg around 52 3030, then at 53 it seemed to get worse and at 3040 she hit a backhand wide and then her leg kind of just froze and she couldn't bend it.

It was really sad to see the match end that way. Qiang was in so much pain, both her legs started to cramp up in the end. Would have been such a wonderful victory for her in front of her home crowd. Sigh.

Hope she recovers soon.

Riske is going to smoke Ajla in the next round!

That's so unfortunate.

But on the bright side it's only cramps, I was expecting something much more serious when I saw the result.

Shocking.

For once, a player retiring out of cramps without delivering the usual circus trying to win all the same upon the opponent's broken rhythm.
