Looks like Ferrero might generally retire, these injuries are quite persistent and he's not young.

Ferrero is the only one to regret. Roddick has nothing to offer on clay and Rochusankis has many years left to play.

He played and won Umag last year, but other than USO, I don't think he played at all after that :sad:

what he has is a great shot of being destroyed in the first round.

by some local cabinet maker who plays at some clay court club.

Andy probably didn't want to play RG and I don't blame him for how crappy he's looked this clay season :lol: ...come back stronger on the grass please.

Mosquito :sad: Hope he plays a few more tournaments as a farewell tour type of thing if he is going to retire soon

they lucked out. ESPN doesn't really care about french open and tennis channel actually gets more coverage. I'm sure Gimelsnob is crying right now about his lover Roddick.

Oh no. RG is wide open now that the 3 hot favorites are out. Pity that Roddick won't be able to repeat his last year's dominance on clay.

:worship::worship::worship:

Gutted that there's no potential of a Roddick vs Lu rematch on the dirt though. Had the potential of a 1-6, 6-0, 6-1, 0-6, 6-1 to either man!

My what will ESPN do? No Williams and no Roddick. We will probably hear about how Querrey is the next clay king again.

Having heard what the coverage of tennis is like in the US, they'll probably resort to focusing exclusively on an American mixed doubles pairing, and just show reruns of their matches rather than show some actual live tennis.

Rumors say he will be back on the clay courts post-Wimbledon.

His body is starting to break down on him. Hopefully for his sake, that is not the sign of declining in the career.

He pulled out after qualifying started so you need a LL to replace him.

Hewitt is another big question mark. Supposedly he's gonna make up his mind soon.

There's a video of him practicing today and he appears to be limping quite noticably in it. I'm expecting to him to either pull out or get knocked out by Monty in R1. I'd love to be wrong though!
