AO First Round: Serra def. Darcis 6-7 (3), 3-6, 5-4 (40-0) ret.

Anyone know what happened to Darcis here? He was up *4-1 in the third set too...

AO R1: Serra def. Darcis 6-7(3) 3-6 5-4 ret.

Darcis led *4-1 in the third, and then obviously his injury came back, he lost 4 games in a row and was forced to retire.
Honestly, I expected Serra to win this match easily due to Darcis' injury, but this is just sad for Steve that the injury came back 2 games before the eventual win.

Wow I really feel for the guy. That is something no one wants to experience. I was actually just thinking about the last time a player has retried after being so close to winning, let alone 2 sets to none up.

Verdasco-Mathieu AO 2007 or 2008, Mathieu was leading 2 sets to 0, and 3-1 in the tiebreak of the 3rd set before twisting his ankle.

How unfortunate...both for Darcis and for tennis. Serra advancing past the first round of any tournament is not a good thing.

Serra winning a grand slam match, has it happened before?

I was wondering what happened too. Hopefully Darcis gets better soon.

Couldn't he simply let the set end?

Well actually it wasn't his shoulder this time. Leading 4-1 in the third set, Steve recieved heavy cramps. He needed to be threated on the court and he recieved a 2 game penalty for this ????

He had a lot of pain and couldn't run anymore. He was very disappointed. He had no explanation, he said he drunk enough, eat enough, was not that tired, and still he had cramps everywhere in his body.

I saw there was a big pause at 4-1 but I thought the scoreboard got stuck, and I wasn't surprised to see that soon it was 4-3. 2 game penalty for receiving a medical treatment?
Cramps after 2 hours? I figured it was his shoulder injury again, but this is just weird.
