Tokyo R2: Sela def. Del Potro 2-6 7-5 5-3 ret.

Nice win for Dudi

Del Potro retired after being broken for 3-5, I don't know why he couldn't finish the match, I hope it's not a serious injury

Juan

I knew something was wrong, he just went downhill during the second set. I really hope it's not anything serious.

Dudi Sela (apperantly) def. Del Potro 2:6, 7:5, 6:3...

But I'm not sure

Score board showed 5:3 in the third for Dudi, Dudi had the break and was serving for the match, 15:0 for Dudi and then the match disappeared from the SB.

So, I hope I won't be eating my words, but if Dudi won it is a great win for him, and nice way to continue his Davis momentum.

Re: Tokyo R2: Sela def. Del Potro 2-6 7-5 5-3 ret.

How come he retired at 3:5 in 3rd set?
Why he didn't just stayed for three points and lose 6:3.
It is disrespect to the opponent.

Of course only if the injury was not a bad one!!!!

Re: Tokyo R2: Sela def. Del Potro 2-6 7-5 5-3 ret.

This is like the millionth time Del Potro has retired this year. Del Potro should have finished off this match unless if he was badly injured and risking further injury. Especially since he was receiving serve, he could have easily walked from side to side.

I'm probably being too harsh on him because of his history of retirements though.

I don't know what went on, but I've seen him sulk like a little kid (and give in) before - Notts Open QF vs Karlovic.

He is still young, but he needs to grow up a little.

Very professional approach to retire at 3-5 down in the deciding set ...
If he was that "Injured" why even play that long ???

Del Potro loses tight match in almost every tournament lately.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

I don't like players retiring at situations like that, even if they have a bad injury I'd have thought they could just let their opponent serve 4 aces.

Good win for Dudi though

Poor form by del Potro.

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".
