Has the illness from Indian Wells made Miami or bad food in players restaurant

First day of Miami qualies and already 4 retirements.

Kudratsyev
Zopp
Julio Silva
Zemlja

How many more to go down.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

But this retirements are for illness or injured?

The qualies have started an hour ago, and already 4 players have retired. Extremely weird. In all of the matches involved the 2nd set didn't even start.

I still don't understand why players retire from matches. Unless gravely injured or deathly ill, finish the damn match.

Actually, don't come on court at all if you can't put forth a performance. But guys play and then retire to save their bodies, which I have no issue with. Also they want the 1st roud paycheck.

I think these are actual injuries and not illness related, but who knows?

Kudratseyev retired in Sarajevo on Saturday.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

On the whole, I agree, but we don't actually know what happened to those players, do we?
If it's injuries, perhaps a coincidence - it happens.
If it's that same goddamn virus -

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: Festival of Retirements in Miami. 4 retirements on Day 1

how much do first round qualifier losers get?

I'd imagine Kudryavtsev never had any intention of finishing his match here. Nice place for a spring break I guess.
