didn't realize she was like this until last night. Receiving a point a penalty for not going to the bathroom was classic. in addition, her comment to Shelby after the second set.Anisimova gives Kenin and Putinseva a run for their money in the “easiest to root against”department.

according to the commentators, it was asarcastic good set to Shelby. Shelby looked at her twice afterwards walking to the chair. the commentators were embarrassed by her behavior. Shelby has come a long way.What was her comment after the second set?
I turned it on in the 3rd, my god what a mess. I heard after the match Shelby said, "hope you feel better" which was nice of her. Shelby has lost a TON of weight and it's made a big difference in her game.
An injury to her left leg / knee I think. Hopefully it’s not too serious and she retired to avoid aggravating it.What happened to her this time?
interesting stuff. Thanks for the information. i thought Anisimova picked the wrong time have the injury timeout.In terms of players retiring when holding a clear lead, other examples that sprung to mind were Groenefeld when leading Sharapova 6-1 4-2 in Moscow in 2005, and Wozniacki when leading Kremer 7-5 5-0 in Luxembourg in 2009.
Wozniacki retired as she wouldn’t have been able to play her next round match, so she allowed Kramer to take her place instead and wanted to recover in time for her first ever YEC appearance. The fact that her father told her to play another couple of games and then retire during a changeover, didn’t go unnoticed and led to a WTA investigation.
