I think it's better if she doesn't disclose anything. If she still has that injury, it's clear at this point is chronic. Which is not good.

The other day she said she was fine despite having a ice bag on her wrist. I mean...
There are products for the protection of tendons and cartilage. I'm a bit baffled that she keeps having this problem.
Having an ice bag could also be part of her post match rehab, that doesn't worry me.

She doesn't have to be specific but a lil heads up would be nice.

What's wrong with you both (and some others here) and your bullshit comments about Maria's love for art. How long have you been her fans to act as if she never, all those past years, posted pics of her visiting museums and art galleries or sharing with her fans some art pieces she loves? I'm tired of all this nonsense.
She's exaggerating her love for art at the moment and it's probably the worst moment when everything in her career is so uncertain. I totally understand the frustration.

Bad decison from Maria to play IW. I mean she has much much experience about the injury. What did she think to play IW If she is not 100%. Poor Maria :eek:
I don't think she's been a100% since after Stuttgart. She almost missed the entire summer hard court season, the USO went ok, won a minor tournament, but wasn't herself after that. Who knows how far she would have gotten if she didn't draw Osaka at IW? So I don't think it was a bad decision. The one thing to worry about is that this injury won't go away unless she goes under the knife and she seems very reluctant to do that.

At this moment any surgery is not good :p She's not young anymore, hopefully she will find better treatment for her body. I don't think doing gym is a good thing for her body

Surgery is the only thing that can fix things. Rehab is useless.

A 30 years old body is still relatively young in terms of recovery, cell degenerations etc.

The body starts aging aka declining from it's peak at 20 but it's a very slow process almost imperceptible.

Obviously if you have some desease or illness or some defects that don't get treated or fixed in time then it's a huge problem because there is the chronicization of the issue and that's a long way back if ever back. Especially mentally.
You just get used to it and take it as your new normal and adapt.

Call it burn out, call it depression, call it apathy, call it ptsd, call it statism in kids, call it becoming numb to almost anything, call it lack of feelings but that's it.

You fucked up your brain. You can kiss your limbic system and epithelial gland goodbye. And with that your own self.

I wonder just how hard she worked to keep her weight stable on the thin side. I suspect enough to have taken a toll.
: lol: you and your obsession with weight. It's not difficult to keep your weight in check. There are also products for that. Not all these products can be on wada list because many of them are just natural products or " superfood" if you will.

She's also a too anxious person to eat that much. If anything I think she's veerying into not eating that much. That's why she drinks so much (too much) coffee . Which is no bueno.

It is hard to tell just what effect, if any, the meldonium had on weight. I cannot sort out the differences in just how it causes what to be burned to produce energy.....I am not sure just when Maria found it to be useful in her body chemistry, but I wonder if it was around 2007-2008....she had experienced some changes, normal growing up, and as you say...."It's not difficult to keep your weight in check. There are also products for that."

Without abandoning the discipline of very strong workouts and establishing good diet habits, a product such as meldonium could have made that more routinely possible.

I bow to your expertise, and apologize for my "obsession", which, even if there was anything to it, I would not know what to suggest Maria to do.
