I'm at work so not watching it - why did Djokovic have to retire?

I knew it. He did the same thing against Coria last year, a quiter!

he probably knew that he can't win after he lost the second set which he could win.

Re: Nadal def. Djokovic 6-4 6-4 RET

He was nervous/tight and when your tight, you can be prone to cramping or aggrivating injuries. Does a retirement still count along Nadals win streak.... it is a win still right?

Rafa is pissed, he says that he does not like to win this easily.

Struggling with his lower back for quite a lot of the match...hung in to end the second set then decided he wasn't going to be able to complete the third.

A real shame but given the grass season coming up and no chance at all to win in that sort of shape, perhaps he did the best thing.

Nadal won't mind - even in spite of the problems it still took him nearly 2 hours to get to 2-0 up in sets.

An unexpected bonus and he can recuperate for his semi now.

Djoko retired last year against Coria, perhaps he is a quiter.
