She went back for a overhead and something popped in her knee. After thatOsaka retiring, what was wrong?
Oh wow tyShe went back for a overhead and something popped in her knee. After that
she was trying to stretch our her leg and finally during her service game 40 all worked
off the court till they brought in the trainers.
They looked her over and decided they couldnt find anything mechanical wrong with her knee
Taped her up. She finished the service game and retired,
Hope she is ok !!!!
Keys, unfortunately, is kind of the epitome of a brainless ball basher. She has a habit of hitting herself out of matches just as well as she can hit her way through them...It's crazy that Keys has never won a Premier+ title. Sure she's had some stiff competition but then you remember that players like Vesnina, Suarez Navarro and Konta have won Premier+ titles... Keys made the Premier 5 Rome final losing to Serena and the Premier 5 Rogers Cup final losing to Halep, both in 2016. Since that Rogers Cup final over 3 years ago, she hasn't made a single SF of a Premier+ tournament!
Yet in that same time frame she's made the US Open final, another USO SF, a French Open SF, another French QF and an Australian Open QF. Additionally she's won 2 Premier titles.
She's 3 games away from breaking the 3 year streak.
Sveta cracks me up. I nearly died when she was asked what the key was to getting these results and she answered "probably getting my US visa".Also i'm ecstatic to see Kuznetsova still smashing it on the tour!
Crazy month for her, couldn't defend her Washington title due to visa issues, now in a Premier 5 SF! Iconic.
Love everyone, Barty will get no 1 back if she reach final. Svetlana in beast mode is really awesome tho.Great win for Keys.
SF lineup complete:
(1) Barty v (WC) Kuznetsova
(16) Keys v Kenin
2 slam champs, 1 slam finalist, 1 rising start having a breakout year. Not bad. That second SF will delight the American fans.
Halep's worst result in 5 years at Canada-Cincy double. She made at least SF or better at both tournaments every year since 2015.
On the other hand, the good showing at those tournaments was followed by not so good results at USO. USO is her worst slam with only one QF (2016) and one SF (2015) and 1R exits in the past 2 years.
Will she reverse the odds this time around and have a deep run at USO or end up with the most underwhelming North American leg in her career so far? I guess will see in few weeks. I hope she is injury free for USO so she can focus on her game unhindered.
I know he can be tiresome with all that Serena talk and I also know he's a grown man who doesn't need defending, but I was also puzzled with the whole Halep and retirements affair. Firstly, Halep has never been the type of player who's retiring left and right and running like a rabbit the next day up to this point. She plays a gruelling type of game and, as a result, she actually went straight to hospital after a final for exhaustion - not a thing you see everyday. Secondly, even if she pulled that trick, she wouldn't be the first one to do it.
It's not pretty, sure, but it's not unheard of. Hell, Serena pulled it way before this postpartum period, not even showing up at all. So, I don't see why Halep should be more maligned for it than others. Thirdly, just because she played Cincinnati that doesn't mean she was feigning it. . It's not that hard to believe she stopped for fearing of making what it might have seemed a "light" thing much worse and ended up recovering within few days, especially being a young athletic woman.
Yes, an amazing run by Svetlana. For her resume, she has 2 slam titles in singles and another 2 for doubles. That alone should qualify her for HoF.Agree with everyone that thinks Kuzy is still awesome. I was wondering the other day if she’s a Hall-of-Famer. I think she is.
I hope she wins the whole thing. She missed defending DC due to her Visa snafu...and she seems to be making every effort to prove herself now. She always been that player to do well when no one expects her to, and here she is doing it againAmazing effort by Sveta.
Great stuff, really happy for her.
