Why didn't he retire at 3-1 or something like that? Retiring at 5-2 is too bizarre for words.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

Maybe he placed a huge bet on himself to win... and wanted his money back.

Re: Gaston Gaudio def. Kiefer 7-5 5-2 ret.

Kiefer got his thigh heavily taped at I think it was 3-1 down in the second set. He played on but I was a bit surprised when he suddenly retired, although in fairness he did seem a bit restricted. He played really well I thought in the first set but maybe after the effort that went into that and only to lose the set, he had enough.

He certiainly put a lot more effort in today than Malisse did against Nadal.

Re: Gaston Gaudio def. Kiefer 7-5 5-2 ret.

It's not hard to give up 4 points if you want to lose that badly. Players retiring with one game to go, without a MAJOR injury, is just classless.

I'm a Kiefer fan, but this is pathetic.

Re: Gaston Gaudio def. Kiefer 7-5 5-2 ret.

I was under the impression that the trainer told him to stop. I didn't see it or read that in an article, somebody on another board said it

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

He seemed to be moving quite well for a guy who had a thigh or quad problem.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Maybe he thought he would have done more damage if he'd continued, or didnt feel like tanking the last game. I dont know as i didnt see it.

If there is a quad or thigh strain, then it's very hard to move forward to dropshots and take off quickly, that was something Kiefer didn't have a problem with.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
