Peng Shuai: ‘It’s impossible to play tennis like this’
(01-14 17:28)

China’s Peng Shuai who suffered cramps and vomited during her loss to Japan's Kurumi Nara at the Australian Open in Melbourne Park today, pointed to the unbearable heat for her poor performance.
She also received a violation for time-wasting at a moment when she said she was unable to walk.
“I was just cramping and I couldn't stand up. Both legs, my hamstrings were cramping,'' she said.
“I had no energy, I couldn't run, I couldn't serve,'' she said, blaming the heat for her defeat. “So it's impossible to play tennis like this.''—AFP
