Once the 38th-ranked women's player in the world, the 22-year-old Canadian is pulling back from the game for a second time, citing in part an ongoing battle with depression. And that depression was only fueled by hateful comments on her Twitter and Facebook accounts, including "burn in hell" and diatribes that her losses had cost bettors money. She took her story public, she says, to drive home the point that "depression is nothing to be ashamed of." Tweet-cussing an athlete over a bet is another matter. [Source]
