Matwé I almost 'hope' he was carried off the court on a stretcher.

I believe that could be the only proper reason to retire at this point of the match.

In fact the score was *1-5 *0:40 in 3rd, not 2-5 as i wrote in thread title !

You know, I feel you can't blame sub-top 150 players for this. Well, you can. But I'm not that harsh on them. They have probably bet on themselves and seriously need money and even more seriously can't afford to lose money and bet somewhere that the match will be voided in a retirement.
They shouldn't do it, but I understand it

If they're going to retire anyway, they shouldn't retire on match point itself. Middelkloop was either extremely hurt, or wanted to troll his opponent.

Unless movement was really impossible and trying to do so would have injured him for life, this is a disgraceful retirement.
