Disappointing result, but Bellotti is a talent. Simone had chances in basically every single return game and failed to break or even get to break point. Then Bellotti hit a return winner and Simone retired.
Hopefully it isn't serious, whatever the issue is.
Hopefully Bolelli will retire overall, I can't take this any longer.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.
At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
