Why does this muppet bother playing if he is going to retire everytime? Idiot.

Wow, I didn't know that. Man I really like his game and I thought he would make an impact this year after giving Nadal a hard time. Oh well.

Bollitieri's little bitch should learn "less is more" ASAP. Why the rush to play every f*cking tournament. Obviously, being a Bolliwhore You're still growing up. Get some rest

"Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another" .. Madonna

Drooling after Schuettler, Bolelli, Volandri, Starace (short haired version), ToJo, Tursunov, Alves, Davydenko, Djokovic, Petzschner, Ferrero, Simon, Qureshi

Oh ffs, it always happens. You notice a player in one tournament and then they lose in the nest one in the first round.

Re: Wimbledon Rd 1: Marc Giquel defeated Kei Nishikori 4-6,7-5 (Ret)

Kei got an abdominal muscle strain during the first round of Nottingham last week, and unfortunately it looks like it flared up again today.
He got treatment on his abdomen with spray, taping and some tablets after taking the first set. Till then he was playing very well, and he managed to keep the score close in the second set as well. But probably the pain became unbearable after the second set. He quit during the first game of the third set.
Poor kid looked dejected after the loss, burying his face in a towel.

I think it's inevitable that some teenage pros tend to retire more often than not, they're not used to playing week in, week out, at a much higher level than challengers and futures. Better to take care of themselves when injured than making it worse by playing on to get some permanent damage before their career really takes off.

Have a good rest, Kei, get better soon and play fit in New Port!

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO FOREVER!!

Also supporting Rafael Nadal, Kei Nishikori, Lleyton Hewitt
David Ferrer, Andy Murray, Juan Martin Del Potro, Nikolay Davydenko, David Nalbandian
Goran Ivanisevic and Marat Safin

Crap, I really liked his game at Queens. Now we have to wait a few weeks to see that "flying forehand" in action again.

Good news for Roger, I guess. This could have been his first real "small threat".

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)
