I was there. Hocevar hit a ball and it Ries in the back on the head. Looked pretty painful

According to tournament website, Rieschick was defaulted for verbal abuse

according to a Brazilian news, Rieschick was carrying an injury and eventually abandoned (they say Rieschick was leading 4-2 in last set)

But I think it wasn't a retirement, otherwise the tournament website and official result wouldn't show default and even the reason was given.
