Did Roddick receive the W/O or give it? :scratch:

It was Murray that withdrew. Shame.

It seems as if every time the Andys face each other, one is either in extremely bad form or injured.

Murray pulls out only as a precaution measure for his thumb, he didn't want to risk it with Wimbledon in a few days.:rolleyes:

you could edit the title by clicking "edit" on the first post and then "go advanced" and then write something like Roddick wins by w/o or something like that.

Andy Murray is a wimp. We saw Rafa play with the most terrible blister on his foot - OK he lost the match but he still played. OK I know a strained thumb is a little worse, but he could have at least tried to play. Oh well onto Wimbledon I guess.

What would be the point of playing with a sprained thumb on his racket hand? With a sprained thumb you have trouble picking up a piece of paper - I know, I have had one.

If he had gone on court the match would have been a virtual walkover anyway.

He can't hold the racket properly, genius. He said so himself. What's the point in playing if you can't hold the racket properly on your backhand grip?

I have had a sprained thumb and it wasn't fun. He's just annoying because everytime I want to see a clash of the Andys, one is usually injured (usually Murray).

This thread title is better, but it's still imprecise. "Retired" implies that Murray started the match, which is not the case. Just sayin'.

Murray's on my shitlist because his crazy game caused Roddick to injure his back in last year's Miami QFs. :mad: :shout:

So now that Murray has wussed out again, I guess Andy will have to wait to deliver his cold revenge at Wimbledon. Apropos. :p

Injured thumb, a sore throat. Damn the ATP is weak.

Hopefully in 2 weeks time.

Im real worried do theses injuries only take a few days to recover or is Wimbledon in doubt?

Did someone do that recently? All I remember is Harkleroad playing through the pain of a cyst bursting on her ovary. That's quite different from period cramps.

Can't say I'm surprised. Muzza really excelled himself yesterday. :tape: :o

Gulbis/Roddick would have been better anyway. :p Andy is funny abusing the younger generation. ;)

At least they don't retire with period pains or something :rolleyes:

Yeah, that does kinda hurt you know. ;) For me anyway, I'm out of commission for the whole week, can't eat for days, and need prescription painkillers to prevent myself from passing out from the pain. But I'm sure it's much more pleasent for others! :banana:

An injured thumb? Really? Tape it up and get out there, you aren't French. I'm pretty sure Murray was just afraid of being embarrassed by Roddick's monster grass game.

UdaciRoger are you seriously going to argue that WTA players are less pansies compared to ATP? Gal, is everything okay upstairs??? If all slams were best of 3 or if Disney wasn't making the schedule, there wouldn't be as many injuries on the ATP Tour.

Indeed. And it doesn't matter how athletic and tough you are; for over half of young women, period cramps can be pure hell - radiating to your back and thighs as well and therefore hampering movement - and even if you clench your teeth and ignore the pain in a superhuman effort, that won't stop you from throwing up on court and having migraines that seriously mess with your eye-hand co-ordination, like a hangover times a hundred. You're bloated with stiff joints (again, hampering movement) and the heavy blood loss makes you weak and dizzy. And if you're one of the (many) unfortunate people who have adverse reactions to strong painkillers, add diarrhoea to the mix as well...

I'm guessing quite a few players on WTA are on hormonal treatments... otherwise some of the matches might be, er, interesting to watch. :p

Of course, this has nothing to do with men's tennis.

Ermh. Sooo... how about that Queen's Club tourney, eh? Poor Murray, hope he gets well soon. But nice weather, isn't it?

(I'll get my coat.)

I'm not UdaciRoger and I don't know who's more or less of a pansy, but I hope you're not seriously arguing that anybody is a 'pansy' for being unable to play with a severe menstrual disorder. Would you expect anyone - male or female - to play with food poisoning? Because that's what it's like, at its worst.

Gawd, they're such pansies, the lot of 'em. Back in my day players knew how to turn these things to their advantage. Everybody knows if you throw up over the net before you serve, the ball will have so-called vomitspin, making it impossible to return because the opponent is so grossed out that he hides behind the ballboys.
