LOL

He's probably tired after beating Gicquel in 5 long sets AND then having to take his top off and throw it into the crowd - physically it all got too much for him.

Whatever the reason is, I'm not sorry he's gone.

@Shotgun Blues: Sorry, but your reaction isnt really appropriate IMO.

Well shit. But I saw the scratches on his knees in the locker room after the match against Gicquel. He even mentioned it on his site, so I guess its probably that.

Re: Kiefer retired after losing first set 1-6

How did the crowd react?

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Is this a result thread? If so, I don't see anything wrong in being happy for the fact that one of my favourite players reached the 4th round.

Well, you made it sound like Berdych just won a 5 set epic match instead of winning by retirement of his opponent after one set. If my favorite player wins like that, I dont go "wohooo, he did it!". More like "Oh, sad that he won like that, but I am happy that he is in the next round." Do you understand what I mean?
