Well, this isn´t like 2-6, 1-5 so hopefully no some serious injury. Was there a stream?

It´s 2-5 in second set tiebreak here, nothing impossible to come back. If it would be Pashanski for example then OK, but does Gaba have such a history?
There have been several serious injuries (mostly knee or ankle related) on scorelines like 6-0, 1-0 lead(!), in the very late stages of third set or even at opponent´s MP so there is such a possibilty and Gaba actually had pretty serious problems not that long ago. We will see when he will play his next match.

He was 2 points away from losing, not much worse than retiring at match point. And yes, he does have a (small) history for this, like 2007 Roland Garros vs. Cipolla L 6-7(6), 3-6, 2-5 RET

Gabashvili is only a ballbashing mug with limited game, but also a disgrace to the sport.

N/Adull is much more of a disgrace. You're lucky GOATbashvili generously gave your little piggy 3 matches

Re: Challenger Champaign: R1 Sock def Gabashvili 7-6(4) 6-6(5-2) ret.

Well, the question is - did anybody watch the match and know the whole stuff which happened here? Gabashvili is obviously a dodgy case when it comes to certain thing sometimes, but this is a different thing. There is no shame to retire if the injury is really legit. I bet a very high perctentage of us would retire too in whatever stage of the match when we would get injured, you are lying to yourself to think otherwise. I´ve seen player, it was Minar, literally walking off the court without any reason while trailing 0-4 in third set once, so of course such things happens, but you just can´t say player surely faked an injury just because you see such a scoreline, especially when he actually still had a plenty time to turn it around.

For sure, I will take all my words back when we will see that he retired for nothing. I remember there were also cases when a player retired in singles and then played doubles the same day.

They always make up an injury in these cases. And aren't you guilty of the same thing if you say Minar walked off for no reason?? I'm 99% sure that Gaba wasn't actually injured... Plus, 0-4 is just as easy to come back from as 2-5 in a tie-break...
