Futures: Middelkoop retires at 7:6 4:6 1:5 - 0:40

Or at 3 match points down ??!?!?!!?!?!!?

(LL)Constant Lestienne (FRA) vs (4)Matwe Middelkoop 6-7 6-4 5-2* 40-0* and Middelkoop retired !?!

It should be mentioned there was an injury break at 3-0 in third but still...

I'm ashamed of my fellow countryman. Any news on why he did it? Did something happen earlier on between the players or?

Don't know,
didn't watch the stream but I was following point by point and there was any injury break at Middelkoop down 0-3* in 3rd set.
I could only understand this if there was some painful incident by Middelkoop at that last point...

Doesn't this sound suspicious?

On the other hand, if you lose deliberately, you'd try to hide it.

This isn't such a big deal to be honest. I once retired in the middle of match point.

Most guys on the list are known to be clown characters, and so is Middelkoop. Dancevic has done it as well.
