The current one is good,
but per ex. I remember in St. Petersburg, Davydenko won 6-3 and then when he was playing the 2nd set he retired, but luckily nobody choose Moodie.
I think in this situation the match shouldn`t be counted...

Re: Counting the retired matches?

Only a few bookmakers use a single point played for a match to count as valid.

A few more use one set completed for a match to count valid.

Most bookmakers use a completed match for match to count valid.

Obviously you would think the bookmakers know what they are doing so my vote goes to No

Yes, I think all the people that vote in "Yes, but only a set complete" is against a "desadvantage winner".

So, choice should be "Yes, but only with a set complete and an advantage situation."

advantage means "breaks advantage" (1-0* is not an advantage).

comparing bookmakers to TT isn't relevant

In tennis a win is a win and the result will count no matter how it comes.

Actually, If you think about it we are more like bookmakers trying to pick the winner rather than players who are actually playing and may lose thru injury. We do not suffer the same fate as players with an injury but do sometimes become unfairly disadvanteged when a player picks up an injury which has no reflection on our tipping ability
