Löysin tuolta BAW:sta artikkelilainauksen, joka kertoo naisten matsien vedonlyönnin vaikeudesta verrattuna miehiin.
With a new book out and a reality TV series in the works, Serena Williams embarked Monday on her latest project: raising awareness about menstrual migraines. It's a malady rarely discussed in sports, and Williams was reluctant at first to talk about the headaches that have been a recurring pain for her over the past five years.
For Williams, they start with a dull ache that build to a throb. The back of her eyes hurt and her ears ring. Sometimes she becomes dizzy and nauseated.
”You want to just crawl under your bed and stay there," she said.
"I know it doesn't look like it affected my tennis," said Williams, winner of seven Grand Slam titles. "But especially in the sun, playing with a migraine makes it worse. In Australia it's not that easy. I remember playing Martina Hingis in Sydney, and I was just out of it."
"Some doctors tell you it's mental," she said. "One of my doctors actually told me that - `You have to get over it. There's nothing really wrong with you. You just think it is when it gets to be that time of the month.' I was thinking, `I've got to be more mentally tough.'"
Migraines weren't the reason Williams went without a major title last year. But she did blame the ailment for at least one defeat: against qualifier Alina Jidkova at Linz, Austria, in October.
"It was the last straw," she said."I lost to this girl I would never lose to because I had such an incredible headache."
Kaikki “akalliset” miehethän ovat tämän tienneetkin
, mutta laitetaan nyt tänne, jotta poikamiehetkin saisivat tietää miksi naisten matseissa joskus sattuu suuriakin yllätyksiä!
Tosin meillä miehilläkin on näitä kuukausittaisia hormonaalisia vaihteluita, mutta niiden vaikutus on pienempi ja niillä on näin lievempiä sivuvaikutuksia.
