Nervous breakdown in US Open 2009…


Yes, the question is can we really call it a nervous breakdown. I will say it is in a way a nervous breakdown. It was really funny to see 7th seeded player sulk with such a vigour.

Yes, I am talking about Russian Vera Zvonareva. In yesterday’s match she was really sulking hard when the match was in third and final set. Zvonareva won the first set and then kept on loosing. But even though you are in a bad shape at the game you should not sulk so much on the court. That doesn’t show the sportsman’s spirit. And so much of anger from 7th seeded is really not expected. Zvonareva was really kicking her knee, spanking her knee with racket, tearing off her bandage etc etc. Commentators rightly named this thing as “Self Abuse”.

 

Zvonareva has been in the International Tennis scene since September 2000 but the maturity she should be having was not visible. A player should accept the defeat too with dignity and calmness. Anyways, the stats for the game between Vera Zvonareva and Flavia Pennetta are as follows:

But Flavia Pennetta deserved her win over Zvonareva as she seemed more composed and maintained cool attitude all along the game.
