I was expecting Fognini to retire today since he was complaining about shoulder injury
Fognini made 2 aces in a row to go 40-15 then Rochus quit. I wonder if he could have waited another point :o

Typical Chris :p . But okay he played a lot last weeks and I think he wants to be fit for Wimbledon Qualy

I talked to him in Zagreb after his win in the semis, seems a nice guy, down to earthy I would say....

Rochus must've backed himself on betfair for some extra dough and decided to get the bet voided.

Yes ^! I dont understand what a loser could retire like that , let him serve one point and dont touch the ball , isnt that hard .

that's what I thought, Fognini made 2 aces before the retirement, he could have made a few more steps and then let the ball go past him another time :shrug:

I don't understand why he should do that ?
A loss 5/4 40/15 or 6/4 doesn't change anything for him...
Same for Fognini.
It's not like if it was 6/4 5/4 40/15 which would have been made to spoil the victory.

Agree,if he won a more point anyway the win was going to be by retirmenet, no much difference.

This fucking Rochus is at it again :mad: :rolleyes: Last he retired on an opponent's match point and now he retires on a set point. The guy is simply a disgrace to the sport. I mean for fuck sakes what did it cost him to just get aced and then retire??? Pathetic dwarf! He should end up in the Tennis Hall of Shame.

It´s not the first time Rochus makes sth like this, I remember a funny retirement at mp against in a match vs Koubek, looked like someone had shot him, funny guy this dwarf
