The girl can hardly move, I will be surprised if she wins any more than 4 games. This is so unlike her to play when she is carrying an injury in a tourny that is not so big.

The only things I can think of are appearance bonuses and the idea that she would have "given up" the number one ranking by not attempting a run here. As we all know, Serena has a lot of pride, and I think it would be hard for her to move to number two knowing that she had a chance to hold onto the top spot. Whether or not playing in Marbella is smart for her health is another question.

It's quite bad. She's not moving at all, and if Zakopalova had just a bit more confidence on her serve it would be 6-0 right now.

I think players are not allowed to do walkovers anymore without getting suspended or something like that, I am not very sure. That might be the reason why Serena is where she is now and doing what is she doing. Tough I think they can retire in middle of match.

Klara is playing really good, and Serena is crap, just crap, I know clay isn't her best surface but this is just pathetic. It's understandeable that she wants the top ranking, but she is risking her body!

I can't understand how there's livestream for Marbella first round and I couldn't see Miami SF.

But if she withdrew, wouldnt most posters say she never even intended to play in the first place? :confused:

Anyway, she is doing her best. One legged Ree isnt much of a match for any player on her weakest surface though.

She made it worse playing Azarenka.
Serena has won 4 games.
In one set. The same number she won in a whole match in the Miami final.

She's trying. She's fulfilling an obligation. She acting like Serena. She CAN play, so she's playing.
