ATP/WTA Tour - The Other Players

Shame, but I wonder if the injury will last a few week longer. Wink

Ooh, that's wicked!  But yeah, every cloud.  Smile

What is with all these retirements? Hewitt has just won due to a Nedovysesov retirement after Hewitt was leading 2 sets up.

Horribly hot is why and probably humid too. 4xK could hardly move, which is a shame as he looked like winning.

I know, it's crazy.  11 players retired in the first two days!  Is the heat causing mayhem?

Going on for 10 alone in the men's draw I think. Some have sustained injuries in matches - Monfils fell and sustained a right wrist injury. But most just can't deal with the conditions it seems and it has been hot and very humid apparently, a lot of players cramping. Look at Andy cramping inexplicably last year, difference is that Andy battled it out, but others are not so tough.

I think I only counted 1 on the women's side so you must be right about 10 on the men's side.

Edit:  actually, I count 9 ATP, 2 WTA.

Fed looks ominously good. If he gets through to semis without losing a set (and I think he could) he's probably favourite for this tournament. The guy's serve is almost .unreturnable

Possibly also due to the increased prize money even for losing in R1. Some players could have withdrawn before the tournament and decided not to and instead come to pick up their paycheck.

When Stan is cooking with gas, he is intimidating.
