You can't blame the woman who has played 20 tournaments this year, built almost a 1000 point cushion in the Race, and who gained the #1 ranking to finally run out of gas. But you also have to worry about the injuries "sustained" in her second round loss to Flava Flav. How will this affect her performance at the YEC?
Yup, The Drama Queen lost today to Flavs, 57 63 63. According to match reports The Train was running smoothly until the end of the first set when she took a hard fall and cut her knee. From there, Flavia took control and raced away with the last two sets.
Said JJ after the match, "I had no gas left in the tank. "I am not a robot and after winning three titles in different time zones and climates I felt mentally and physically tired."
Oh, JJ. There are many things we accuse of being. A robot is not one of them.
Meanwhile, Vika handed the rare double bagel to Niculscu 60 60. The same Niculescu who just days earlier beat Chakky in three sets. Nutty. And Kvitova beat JJ-hater Sofia Arvidsson, 62 61.
Right now Agi is a dogfight with Kata Srebotnik (oh, looks like Srebotnik just broke in the third and is serving for the set at 5-3). And then Baby E and Mono will take the court. Bepa and AMG will follow.
