What was the injury?

Stebe will (probably) play Tsonga in the next round. I can't wait! :D

Necessary victory for Stebe, but too bad that Feijão had to retire. Given the season Stebe has had, he definitely will be happy with the draw and circumstances here, and the essentially free 45 points.

There was a long break at 5-2* 30-15, I guess sth happened there.

Happy for Stebe, important points. Now he can give a good account of himself against Tsonga. Seems like after his 3rd GS main draw (Wimby 11 and AO 12 being the other two) he will already have played on two Centre Courts (Rod Laver Arena and Chatrier) :D

Back injury for Joao. A shame, because Stebe was a pretty good opportunity of scoring his first ever Slam win.

Agreed 100%, I had Souza as a definite favourite heading into this match. Shame about the injury, hopefully nothing serious there.
