Wolfsburg QF: Janowicz d. Dancevic 7-6(3) 5-3 40-0 ret.

Retired before the mp, I guess because he was standing near the net anyway and had enough. I think Janowicz didn't shake hands.

Not sure if anything big happened before, but Dancevic was acting weird already before in the 2nd set, was kinda provoking Janowicz a couple if times.

For example, returned a 2nd serve on bp like this:

He was pissed off after missing 5/5 set points and 5/5 additional break points. I think he made only one return in total on those 10 break points. The return position was just a bluff, he moved back during Janos toss (but still didn't make the return).

Janowicz celebrated a bit too much at times, and eventually they both acted like assholes towards each other. Frank got broken with a shocker of service game with 3 or 4 double faults and some ugly misses.

The retirement was disgusting as they had both behaved badly. No handshake is of course correct.

49 posts and not one person has any idea why Frank Dancevic retired from this match. Maybe he was actually injured. This is his injury.

http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/91473-overview

Maybe he has a torn quadricep. If he does, why should he play the last point? The result is the same. Anyone who says it would be nice for the winning feeling has never played a sport competitively, that is easy to tell. You still win, its the exact same thing, at 76 53 40-0 its not a shock to win.

If he shows up in a tournament next week then maybe you guys are right in bashing him, but if not, we just saw a big long list of posters who all believe that the world should be guilty until proven innocent, especially funny from a few of the posters in this thread.

why the freakin hell play the game up until 40-0 only to retire why not at the start of the game or was it just at 40-0 that he suddenly had a torn quad and couldnt continue. give me a break..

Retiring at match point for the opponent is disrespectful but Dancevic isn't the first and last player to do it. He is so irrelevant in tennis world that discussing his behavior is rather pointless.

Snowwy
02-26-2012, 01:41 AM

Im saying:

1) We don't know why Dancevic did not play that last point, it seems like a lot of guilty unless proven innocent here.
2) Winning 7-6 5-3 ret is no different than 7-6 6-3, unless you are a perpetual loser, the difference is none. A win is a win, the score in reality means nothing (assuming its close). Obviously 76 76 is different than 60 60.
3) If it is a dumb retirement, I agree with all the posters in here that, terrible decision.

I am expecting bad reps for this but I actually agree with Snowwy. These guys play so many matches and win so many times even at the challenger and future level, that it really doesn't mean a great amount to them. It's not like this was Janowitz's first victory ever and it's not like this was a grand slam final or any kind of final.
I'm not saying Dancevic was right, but I think with the money he's winning, Janowitz could not give less of a shit if he wins 76 53 or 76 63

So are we to understand that he was not agonizing on the floor, twitching in pains and convulsions? He was walking?

Cause if he was walking, he could have been standing on court and finish the match.

He was in so much pain he played the last few points in a wheelchair and had to retire when he got a flat tire and the battery of the chair ran out at the same time. He was using this model:

http://image.made-in-china.com/2f0j00DMuaTqGFaVbe/Electric-Wheelchair-ET-102L-.jpg

Now since the battery was dead, he had to roll the chair using elbow grease. That was made more difficult because of the flat tire. So Frank could not really stop to shake hands, otherwise he would have lost hard earned forward momentum and would not have had the energy to make it move again.

It was the right thing to do, otherwise, he could still be on court, the wind having blown the chair on its side when someone opened the door, and poor Frank would be shivering on the floor, weeping, starving, making grotesque "snow" angels lying in a pool of his own feces.

standing 2 seconds more in 1 place wouldnt decide his health for life at all

of course he will need to make up a story now to avoid a big fine, like koellerer did once pretending cuevas hit him with a racquet and he showed a bruise which was (accordingly to the tournament doctor) 3 days old. these players dont have money anyway so even if they're douchebags, doctors and supervisors rather protect them

obviously he will say he was long time injured and couldnt stand for a second anymore, and more than likely no one will draw consequences this way
