Re: Djokovic withdrew from Bangkok

This is up there with Nadal winning a match on clay for an upset.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Djokovic withdrew from Bangkok

Quite expected. No one could travel half the globe, overcome the jet lag and get ready to play serious tennis in just two days. (Or at least, there's no need to do that.)

Re: Djokovic withdrew from Bangkok

He would've saved himself $40,000 if he had just withdrawn a few days earlier since it seems like he knew all along he wasn't going to play

Re: Djokovic withdrew from Bangkok

He did feign an injury: "Back" problems listed as reason for late withdrawal in the drawsheet. Not usre if this convincing enough to avoid a fine.

Re: Djokovic withdrew from Bangkok

I wonder if Bangkok is still trying to convince ticket buyers that Nadal is coming?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

We will never know what's the agreement between him and the tournament. He had said many times publicly that his next tournament is Vienna.

Actually, are there "ATP Licensed" doctors whose official diagnosis is valid enough for ATP? If there are, and I should think a serious sports organization such as ATP does have them, the issue of fine-avoiding faking doesn't exist.

I believe the rule is the players have to be examined by the tournament doctor. That means the player still has to arrive at the tournament. Otherwise, the player will be fined.
