Has anyone else noticed how many retirements there have been so far this year? What the rest of the season will be like goodness knows!
I've noticed it too. So much for the extended off-season, which quite a few top players used as an opportunity to further fill their coffers by playing exhos anyway - and that after complaining about the length of the Tour. I know exhos are a bit different, but if they want to give their bodies the rest and recovery they said they wanted, then it doesn't make sense.
Don't think so. He retired from AO but has played three tournaments since then - Montpelier, Marseille and Dubai - losing in his first match at each.
He has posted this on facebook: Hard period for my career ..Injury,Davis Cup,3 first rounds in a row...Not feeling particularly good.I will search for consolation in endless hours of practice and hope that Indian Wells and Miami go better.A big "thanks"to some of you who,are giving me your love and support,cause now I really,really need it.
I had the misfortune of seeing him at the 02 last year when he lost 0-6 4-6 to Del Potro. It was painful to watch.
I feel really sorry for Tipsy, and he's one of my fave players, so I'm sending him my love too. Nishi is another of my faves, so I hope he gets fit for IW. I wonder if the knee problem that started before the AO is troubling him again?
