    Man, I remember seeing that match on TV. And Sharapova wouldn't even look at her as she tried to work with the trainer and stand up.

    And you can see how UGLY Sharapova's forehand is on that point...most overrated player on both tours.

    Ankle Protection

    And the next question is...does anyone know of products we can purchase to prevent that from happening to us? Please provide info...thanks.

    BTW, that looked FREAKING PAINFUL.

    Stop the clip 10-12 seconds in. You can see she is wearing Nike shoes.

    this is proof why women should not play 5 set matches (they played over 3 hours at that point) get tired start forgetting the correct footwork....

    Yep, I saw this on tv and it hurt to even look.

    Btw, this event caused REALLY bad p.r. for Sharapova who got flamed by several on this forum for her apparent apathy.

    Golovin, btw, played a fantastic match, staged an unbelievable comeback and was killing Shriekapova in this match, upto this point... when she turned her ankle in that ugly fashion.

    Also, Golovin designs her own clothes and I shall refrain from commenting on her sense of style...

    Only two months with an injury like that?! That is impressive. I wouldn't have known that, seeing her with Sharapova around town making public appearances. Both of them attended the Pistons-Heat playoff game in Miami recently.

    It's the Nike Air Lumify. I saw that match; Golovin had the momentum but unfortunately that had to happen...

    talk about punishment for wearing the wrong shoes!!


    that's like saying that wearing a seat belt will prevent you from getting killed in a accident.

    better footwork would be a goo start. Federer is a good example of that

    You'd have to mess up pretty badly to hurt your ankle with braces on, just like having a seatbelt on during an accident and dying would only be under extreme circumstances. Ever wonder why cops always say "I've never pulled a dead person out of a car accident and had to unbuckle a seatbelt (something like this, sorry I don't know the exact quote)"

    as previously mentioned the worst thing was that Sharapova did not seem to care

    lack of empathy

    this is kind of off-topic, but im just gonna bash on sharapova.

    my friend's brother plays on the UCLA tennis team, and he has played with sharapova (who hits at their bruins courts occasionally) many times. he is D1 and so he wins ~75% of their matches, but he says that sharapova is the biggest b**** there is. she throws tantrums when she loses and has horrible sportsmanship.

    yep. and a funny thing is, he says he could actually have a better ratio against her if she wasnt so hot that it makes him nervous lol.

    yeah I can certainly imagine Sharapova being what your friend's brother described

    it just makes me want Ivanovic or Henin to pound her into the ground even more!!

    OUCH.

    Gotta be careful out there. It's one thing to hustle, another to disregard footwork and just go all out. That's when injuries happen. =/

    I think someone mentioned ankle braces. I seem to have a natural tendency to twist my ankles. I twisted my ankle once around 5 years ago while playing basketball and had a cartilage fracture. After recovering, it happened again while playing tennis a year later. Ever since, I've been wearing ankle braces every time that I play sports that require me to put stress on my ankles. They really help too because there have been incidences when I would definitely have twisted my ankles again had it not been for the braces.

    I was at that match. While the crowd was giving Sharapova a hard time for "not caring", she was trying to stay warm and concentrated so she could eventually win her professional match.

    I was a bit disappointed that people would boo her at the stadium, as if her concern would magically heal her ankle. It is possible that the two women had some kind words over ice cream and scented candles in the locker room after the match, but a WTA match is serious business.

    perhaps but I've seen many matches where the other player comes over to see if the player injured is ok
    eg this Year Tommy Haas vs Andy Murray at Indian Wells
