Most Retirements In A Career

Is there record of this somewhere, other than just looking at individual match results throughout history? Any one have any idea who holds the record. Delpo will surely break it sometime in his career.

Re: Most Retirements In A Career

Isn't it Jerome Golmard? By my count he retired no fewer than 28 times, including every Grand Slam except his home major (and by the looks of the scorelines of some of his RG defeats he perhaps should have quit in them). In fact he retired three times at the AO alone, all against still active players, Kiefer, Nalbandian and Srichaphan. 19 were at tour level, so both Djokovic and Del Potro have ground to make up.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Most Retirements In A Career

Crazy-Dani is a decent talent in this regard. He already has 18 if you count challengers and qualies. That's is pretty good considering he is only 26. Of course he has a few WOs and defaults too.

Federer retired Bercy 08. Can't recall any others though

Nadal's had a few. - Bercy 08, Cinci 07 and I think Sydney too, Queens 06 and I'm sure there have been others I just can't remember them.
