Ehh calm down girls !!! lol
I read L'equipe.fr, yahoo tennis, eurosport, sport24...and NO news about arnaud retiring !! As soulage said, they just said it was his last match in Melbourne.
It's very sad to end up like that in this tournament. It's also sad for Via, who didn't deserve that.
And I guess we will use "sad" for every last tournament he will play this season. Sad to end up like that in Marseille, in Roland Garros, in Wimby etc...
Actually, I don't like the idea, but he should have stoped before losing at every first rounf in qualifs, in challenger... that's hard for us, I imagine it must be hardest for him to play poorly, and I'm not sure he has fun, even if he says he still enjoys playing tennis.
