Five, not including the Monfils withdrawal: Lee, Llodra, Nishikori, Stakhovsky and Volandri.

These players probably shouldn't even be on court, but they cant resist the big 1st round check so they go out there anyways so they can collect it

Stakhovsky was fine until he fell hard. He's excused to me.

What a shame what happened to Stakhovsky, just when he was leading in the third set...

Can't give a comprehensive review but Chris Fowler just said on ESPN that there were a total of three in the entire tournament last year.

The years that are missing on he list should mean there were no retirements at all.


Compared to the other Grand Slams, it is no surprise to say that the least retirements happened at Wimbledon (about 17% of the Grand Slam retirements), related post: Retirement and Walkover stats

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

This year we already have 5 and add one more. Faker is probably retiring before losing somewhere in this tournament.

wow, thanks for those stats.

let's see if there'll be any other retirements.

this year's retirement stats (not just Wimbledon) seem unusually high up to this point.

Ol Step an Fetchit was down a set to DJOKOVIC before he chickened out and RETIRED at ROME this year but of course we don't talk about THAT.

Hey Fuggedaboudit! The only retirement that matters is Djokovic - the others we can all conveniently fuggedaboud, right? 5 retirements at Wimby on the FIRST DAY? How sad that it wasn't just Djokovic. We're all so sad it couldn't have been him. Then we coulda laughed and danced and all joined in on the usual MTF Haters Circle Jerk.
