If it's true it's a real shame...he was a potential Grand Slam champion...he just got injured all the time though.

Re: Pim Pim Retires!!!

Always sad when someone has to retire due to injuries but Pimpim also had the game to play at the highest level which in many aspects is worse still..

Re: Pim Pim Retires!!!

Wow, I find this surprising. I wasn't even aware he was injured since he pulled out of the Australian Open due to lack of preparation.

Such a shame to end his career like that, he really did have a short career that had been hampered by injuries for a number of years now.

At least this pansy took 6 games from Nalby whilst your hero took 3 games in Madrid.
Oct/Nov 2007: There was a time in history when the quality of a tennis player was determined by how many games he won off David Nalbandian.

Re: Pim Pim Retires!!!

That's very sad. I was hugely impressed with him at USO 2004 where he reached semis by defeating Roddick in five. His four-set loss to Agassi at 2005 AO, in which he fired 51 aces, was unforgettable too. And he's still only 25...

He's only 26 and has the potential.
