re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Slava out of Cincy Retirement against Ula Radwanska at 6-4,1-4.

She took a medical time out, came back on, won 3 straight points, but had to retire. Here's why...

Douglas Robson ‏@dougrobson: "Hot day takes toll: Shvedova had something akin to full body cramp in retiring to U. Radwanska. Wheeled thru lounge with ice all over. "

Big shame.

We never really got to find out who the better player is/was on the day. Chances were, that Ula takes the 2nd set, but who knows who would have gone on to win the match. Slava may have pulled the 2nd set back, you never know. Sometimes you get matches where a retirement happens, but it's obvious who is going to win the match, but this one has a Lot of question marks.

I also wonder when the pains started. Not making excuses, but it could have started early in the 2nd set, which may have caused her to go behind. They could have gotten worse, which caused the time out. Slava tries to gut it out, but can't continue. Just a possible theory. I suppose Slava is the only one who knows for certain.

Hope she gets better soon

Rafael Nadal withdraws from the US Open, his injury continues.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

That knee injury seems quite bad. He has withdraw from Olympics, Toronto masters and the Cincinnati. Murray is so lucky, now he is going to be No.3 in the world. Plus with Nadal out in the US Open, it increases Murray chances. Not a good year for Nadal.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

He's had the knee issue for years. Murray needs to take this opportunity

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Nadal pulling out isn't shocking. With his style of play there was only so long he could continue at that level injury free. It might be too early to say this but in my opinion Nadal doesn't have long left playing at the level he has been. Bad season since the French Open.

This does open things up for a guy like Murray to really get into the mix though. Nadal has been his semi final foil for so long now that him playing someone else (even if it's Djokovic or Federer) in the semi final will present far more opportunity for him. He's talented enough to really make an impact and he should take this shot with both hands.

Cincinnaty wise. Murray, Djokovic and Federer through safely. Will get really interesting towards the quater/semi final. Who's in who's half of the draw?

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Murray will have far more chances in beating Federer\Djokovic than Nadal.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Or were you talking about how Murray is more capable of beating Fed/Djokovic? I don't get what you aid before./
