There’ll be no R4 face-off between Venus and Pova. I know at least a few of us were looking forward to that.
Venus pulled out after only one game with “a complicated tear in the psoas muscle”. Petko advances to meet Pova in R4.
“Tennis fans forking out for RL tickets deserve better!”
A 9-time Slam champion that hasn't retired since 1994 deserves better.
And of course I’m assuming you go to work sick or with a debilitating (career-ending) injury? Why ever would you be judging otherwise?
