Metz R2: Stefan Koubek loses to Grosjean 5-7 7-6 4-2 by default/disqualification

I wonder what happened here.

Leading the match as well makes it worse.

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".

Holy shit. Maybe it was a normal retirement and the scoreboard isn't right. But freakish for sure.

I'm extremely curious as to what happened.

That's highly controversial to default Koubek like that while he was leading, especially at Grosjean's home tournament. Unless if he hit a ballgirl or something.

Re: Metz R2: Stefan Koubek loses to Grosjean 5-7 7-6 4-2 by default

I wonder if he had warnings and got an extra one was defaulted on that rule.

Was Norm Chryst in the chair?

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".

I don't what happened, but Koubek getting into a winning position and then being defaulted sucks. I will be interested to find out what the reason was.

I mean exactly as it says. I would have put retirement in the thread title.

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

I don't know. I haven't heard of Rodionova doing that. But she got disqualified for hitting a ball into the stands intentionally in the direction of her opponent's supporters, I think.

It doesn't say what he was Dq'd for as of yet.

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

Re: Metz R2: Stefan Koubek loses to Grosjean 5-7 7-6 4-2 by default/disqualification

It does.

L'arbitre Steiner jugeait faute une balle visiblement bonne, pour le plus grand désarroi du Français, puis revenait alors sur sa décision, provoquant la colère de son adversaire. L'Autrichien demandait alors le superviseur Thomas Karlberg, qui disqualifiait après différents remous, Koubek. A la surprise générale. Sébastien Grosjean retrouvera Tommy Robredo au prochain tour.

If nobody else does, I'll translate it in a bit.

It seems, that Steiner called a ball, which was clearly in, out. Grosjean wasn't happy, but strangely enough, Steiner then gave in and retracted his decision? Koubek, of course, asked for the supervisor Karlberg, who then disqualified Koubek, since the Austrian was furious like hell.

Re: Metz R2: Stefan Koubek loses to Grosjean 5-7 7-6 4-2 by default/disqualification

From website:

La dynamique était désormais autrichienne. D'autant plus que Grosjean accusait le coup physiquement. Koubek, avec deux breaks d'entrée (7/5 6/7 0/3), semblait tenir sa proie dans ses filets. Poussé par le public des Arènes, Sébastien Grosjean jetait ses dernières forces dans la bataille et reduisait le score grâce à un jeu blanc sur le service de l'Autrichien (7/5 6/7 2/4). L'invraisemblable se produisait alors sur la mise en jeu du Tricolore. L'arbitre Steiner jugeait faute une balle visiblement bonne, pour le plus grand désarroi du Français, puis revenait alors sur sa décision, provoquant la colère de son adversaire. L'Autrichien demandait alors le superviseur Thomas Karlberg, qui disqualifiait après différents remous, Koubek. A la surprise générale. Sébastien Grosjean retrouvera Tommy Robredo au prochain tour.

I can't read French well but it looks Koubek went mental after an overrule.
