Now the problem is, what should we do about this question:

I think we should count them in this situation as we count the winner of retired matches.

(I can imagine that some people will start a discussion about this what that situation occurs, saying: "Read the new rule: This match doesn't count for SR" )
I think that should still count, of course.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Marcaccio d. Kohlschreiber 6-0 6-0 3-0 ret. counted (3-0)

Marcaccio d. El Aynaoui 6-7 7-5 6-4 1-6 5-2 ret.counted (3-2)

Marcaccio d. Djokovic 4-6 6-4 6-2 4-1 ret. counted (3-1)

Marcaccio d. Coria 4-6 7-6 4-6 0-5 ret. not counted

We just voted for a new rule, that doesn't count SR's when a retirement happens. This came too late, we can revisit the matter during the off-season and evaluate if we need to make further changes.

Yes, I think so too. Atleast for now, we should keep counting them as before.
