As for the crowd booing, fuck them. I had no problem with what Djokovic did in Madrid, telling the crowd to fuck off, basically.

How many times could Backerer have retired? How many times (more) could Kneedal have retired? What about USO 2009 SF vs. JMDP when Nadal clearly had an abdominal injury? He played through it. Or AO 2011 vs. Ferrer? Or a multitude of times where Fed or Nadal was clearly struggling with injury, but they got through it. Year End 2008 vs. Murray? IW 2013 QF?
Federer and Nadal didn't have crowds abusing them. Nole got plenty of stick for last week's situation, go and read the result thread.

Andy Murray says its 'unlikely' he will play french open due to lower back problems.

Still think he was wrong to retire JG?

What does it matter if it is a freak injury or not? You have no way of knowing just how painful it was for Murray. Maybe it got significantly worse suddenly, we don't know. Now, I hate Murray and think that he does fake a lot that he is in pain, but he is not the kind of guy who retires from matches when faced with little pain. So for him to retire it means there had to be a good reason for it. We have to remember that he is an athlete for whom a Grand Slam tournament is starting in 1 week. This is not two guys playing eachother who are ranked 663400 in the world, he has worked his whole life for this. There is no reason to be stupid about playing on when you can get injured even worse and cant move.

How many more times could Murray have retired from a match? Last year against Nieminen at RG? He was in a lot of pain there, but carried on. Is murray the kind of guy who has often retired from matches? He isn't, he has only retired once before. Compare that to Nadal. Despite all his faults and the fact that he is a bit of a prick, he is not a quitter and I consider him a fighter on court. So when he retires, you can be sure it was for a reason.

That would be a shame. Hopefully he will be ok for Wimbledon.

Well, Andy is a pessimist, and he had a bad day today, so things may seem blacker than they really are. He can't really know yet, surely.

It must be very serious to make that kind of statement over a week before the tournament.

Someone didn't watch the match. Hell you didn't even need to watch it just look at the scoreline

Wow, laugh at someone's career threatening injury, that's classy. Johnny Groove has a point to make, it may not make sense. But on need to drag Nadal into this.

I know Andy barely retires during matches but today he retired. That is so serious injury for him

Hopefully get better soon.

Sad if true. Murray is not a factor on clay, but nonetheless sad to see a super star missing slams. Well, might be a bless in disguise for Wimbledon. Get well soon
