Oh......
I hope he retires, it would be sad to see him ranked oh so very low & all that.

Pete said on Leno last week that he didn't know what he was gonna do but that he would decide within the next month.

I don't think this indicates that he is gonna retire but it could mean that. Basically, what it does say is that he is no longer interested in finishing in the #10, that he is satisfied with what he's done and where he is.

A question for you ranking experts. Since Pete isn't gonna be playing anymore for the year, how far is it possible for Pete to drop?

ATP has confirmed Pete has withdrawn all remaining events this year meaning he will not be able to come to Shanghai.

I can't help but think he wants to go out with a better result at Wimbledon. Will he semi-retire and then ask for a wildcard or something? Because his play has been terrible these past few years.

He wouldn't need a WC into Wimbledon... all his ranking points are basically from the US Open anyway.

Ok I admit I 'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist but doesn't this this just pave the way for Roddick to get the last place?

Pete not playing in Basel?

That's too bad...i was looking forward to seeing him play live before he really calls it quits.
