What happened to a "future GOAT"? :eek:

Why does this muppet bother playing if he is going to retire everytime? Idiot.

06-23-2008, 05:49 PM
Kei retires an awful lot. :unsure:

Abs injury according to the French websites.

Wow, I didn't know that. Man I really like his game and I thought he would make an impact this year after giving Nadal a hard time. Oh well.

:tape: Bollitieri's little bitch should learn "less is more" ASAP. Why the rush to play every f*cking tournament. Obviously, being a Bolliwhore :smash: You're still growing up. Get some rest

Oh ffs, it always happens. You notice a player in one tournament and then they lose in the nest one in the first round. :rolleyes:

Kei got an abdominal muscle strain during the first round of Nottingham last week, and unfortunately it looks like it flared up again today.
He got treatment on his abdomen with spray, taping and some tablets after taking the first set. Till then he was playing very well, and he managed to keep the score close in the second set as well. But probably the pain became unbearable after the second set. He quit during the first game of the third set.
Poor kid looked dejected after the loss, burying his face in a towel. :sad:

I think it's inevitable that some teenage pros tend to retire more often than not, they're not used to playing week in, week out, at a much higher level than challengers and futures. Better to take care of themselves when injured than making it worse by playing on to get some permanent damage before their career really takes off.

Have a good rest, Kei, get better soon and play fit in New Port! :hug:

Crap, I really liked his game at Queens. Now we have to wait a few weeks to see that "flying forehand" in action again.

Good news for Roger, I guess. This could have been his first real "small threat".

What a pity. I wanted a Roger - Kei third round.

he retired for the third time in a month:eek:

Nishikori retired 3 times in one month??!!! This time he had a tummy ache? Move along folks, nothing you want to see here - `Fakervic' is the only one who retires according to the MTF Circle Jerkers. :devil:
