Injuries and Illness - and good luck wishes


I don't think we can escape scrutiny ourselves though. Remember John Inverdale telling Marion Bartoli that she was never going to be a looker!

I see Alize Cornet is retiring

I always had a soft spot for Alize, beautiful and intelligent. A latter day Gabi Sabatini.

OK, just me, and I wish her well, but I am SO glad to see the back of her - whiny, moany, entitled, and don't like her tennis

yes, given it was difficult to be sure if alize was actually injured, or feigning it to gain an advantage, my best wishes to her - as long as she is actually retiring

 Probably retiring as wins are hard to come by these days. She has just ended a run of 8 successive defeats. She does have the record of playing in 68  Grand Slam  singles tournaments in a row. She also reached her peak singles ranking  back in February 2009 when just 19. She also beat Serena at Wimbledon 2014 when Serena was still winning Grand Slams.

 I saw her in Birmingham,  right fusspot, towel from one ballboy and balls from the other. If the towel  guy  wasn't ready she just dropped it, gasps from audience.  I had a front row seat and saw clearly. She completely refused to take a ball from the towel guy.

To be honest, I never really paid much attention to Cornet playing, amusing to see the comments! Giorgi I wont miss but again dont know her. Obviously had a career outside tennis , but didnt she run into scandal around Covid documents?

 Remember watching her at Eastbourne last year, lovely grass court player. Never really fulfilled the promise IMO.

 I think her Dad/Coach held her back, could have been a star.

 I agree. I love a bit of drama on court!
