She's just hating on pretty blond girl. A scene played out one million times an hour all over the world.

I don't know enough about the contest rules.  The opponent took an hour delay, mid match to rest/recover from cramps, likely get some sort of Toradol injection?  If those things are in the rules going into the tournament, they they're within the rules.

It seems shady as hell to me, but I'd keep my mouth shut if it was within the rules.  If they bent the rules at all, then go full tantrum at the cheaters.

Where did you see that it occurred during the match?  What I read said it happened after she won - where she was wheeled off the court after her victory.  Did it happen mid-match as well?  I don't watch tennis so I have no idea how it works.

Match delay of 45 minutes for treatment? What kind of bullshiat is this? What other sport allows this?

You lost to an opponent who couldn't even walk after the match was over.  You just suck.

FWIW, a player can't take a medical timeout for cramp. they can get treatment for it during a changeover as long as it doesn't exceed those 1.5/2 minutes.

Naw, man, you've seen where "but it's legal" gets us. Regardless of what rules you make, sh*tty people are gonna be sh*tty people and use the way the rules are written to get away with stuff that no one would consider right.

I'm tired of the "if it's legally OK, it's morally OK and there's no justification for being pissed off at an asshole" argument.

In a sportsball tournament, you generally should know the competitive rules before agreeing to compete.  That was my general point.

I'm not talking about society, or even about union rights of athletes. this is just basic tournament competition stuff.  Arguments are typically good or bad depending on the context.  Mine is a good argument (although flat out wrong based on my poor reading of the article) in this context.

Well, it seems like her medical timeout was accepted under those tournament rules, so really, Errani should have just bit her tongue and taken advantage of her opponent's weakness.  Which she tried to do, lobbing tricky serves to make her opponent run and cramp again, and then swearing like a sailor and throwing a tantrum on TV when that didn't work.  Fark her, her opponent got a--maybe-- undeserved break, but she benefited from that time out too.

It's not recommended except by some ancient, misguided Farkers who also get butthurt when vodka is written instead of their beloved vodak.

She wouldn't be the first tennis player to try to exploit the injury time out rules.

The sport that comes to mind the most Is soccer, if you have to be assisted of the field it should be the equivalent of a tko, tennis she was wheeled off due to full body cramps there is no way they should have been able to safely clear her to return with in an hour

Show us where it says that.
I read she left the court with cramps in a wheelchair after the match, and Errani was whining because the poor girl was able to walk when she hit the locker room after most likely given something by the tournament's doctor.

From  the middle of the article I thought they were saying she was wheeled off and then perfectly fine in the locker Room but they were referring to after the match, even then wonder before next match are labs done

Correct.  Momentum is a big thing in sport and if your opponent has it, what better way to stop it than to halt play for 45 minutes while you go off and have 'treatment.'

Well, except for the part where she definitely looks like she's playing at 75% of her game, which if you're trying to win, seems counterproductive.
