Djokovic is an awful matchup for ferrer. He just has no way to hurt Novak.

That shit Azarenka pulled was complete BS. If you have to leave the court for 10 minutes, you should lose the match, period. I don't care if you're really injured or not, injuries are part of the game.

I don't even like how they are allowed to take 5 minute "trainer" breaks when they are cramping. Cramping is part of fitness, and if you aren't fit enough to hang with your opponent, then you should lose.

so are medical timeouts where you leave the court. those are the rules, don't get mad at her for using them.

The rules need to be changed, that's the point.


And I don't care if it's within the rules or not, it's incredibly poor sportsmanship. Azarenka lots a lot of fans with that shady move, and I'm one of them. Hopefully Li Na causes her to have another "heart attack" in the Final.

And actually, the rules allow for a 3 minute timeout, not 10 minutes. The rule needs to be adjusted not to allow back to back injury timeouts, and the time allowed needs to be enforced. If you take longer than 3 minutes, you forfeit the set. If you take more than 5 minutes, you are DQ'd and forfeit the match.

i don't like shriekarenka in the first place, but i have no problem with her taking that break.

it's not like this is some kind of routine ploy she pulls in order to get an unfair advantage (er, no... thought would be her grunting / shrieking on every shot). but odd things sometimes happen on the court, and if the rules permit a player to use an injury timeout to take a mental break, that's on the rules, not on the player.

shriekarenka was ALREADY a borderline cheater, but i'm not going to blame her for a one-time refuge in to the rules system. nadal and djokovic have plenty more to say on that subject, and i like both of them as players.

but hopefully li na kicks her ass, shortly...
