Is the score right?

Roddick seemed to hurt his knee. Hope it's nothing serious.

Roddick did his knee in a rally and hope it's not too serious.

Second time Wawrinka beat Roddick by retirement.

Stan was looking good under pressure though.

Second time in three matches that Wawrinka has gotten a win over Roddick by retirement. Must be scared of him. :p

Just kidding. Get well, Andy. I prefer to see you losing legitimately than losing by retirement.

wow, didn't expect that. I'm glad stan is through, but I can't say I'm happy that andy had to retire because the match was looking to be a good one. andy was doing well on his service games as usual and stan's backhand was working really well and doing fine in long rallies. I was looking for it to be a two hours match or something.

ah well. a bit of fortune for stan for the moment, not going to say no to that.

not sure what to make of stan's comment by the end about andy retiring twice in three meeting this year. maybe just self irony or him being sulky, but eh...

Roddick:sad:

Those comments about the tour he made before the match.

http://sports.rediff.com/report/2009/oct/12/roddick-blasts-tour-calendar.htm

An exasperated Andy Roddick [ Images ] said the ATP men's tour must give players more time to rest during the season or risk shortening their careers.

The world number six lost to qualifier Lukasz Kubot [ Images ] in the first match of his title defence at the China Open last week and said then that the top players were playing too much tennis.

He renewed his attack at the Shanghai Masters on Monday while admitting the ultimate negotiating tool, a players' strike, was unlikely.

"I think it's ridiculous to think that you have a professional sport that doesn't have a legitimate off season to rest, get healthy, and then train," the 27-year-old told reporters at his 16th tournament of the season.

World number one Roger Federer [ Images ] pulled out of Shanghai citing fatigue, while number three Andy Murray [ Images ] blamed a wrist injury for his absence from the inaugural $3.24 million tournament.

"I don't think that's all of one big coincidence, and I just hope that the shortsightedness doesn't affect the length of careers," he said.

"I think in tennis you definitely want your stars around as long as possible," he added.

The top 30 men's players are obliged to play the four two-week grand slam events and eight of the nine Masters Series tournaments.

In addition, their best four results in ATP 500 events and best two in lower level tournaments count towards their rankings, effectively meaning they must play at least 18 a year.

"We've been talking about this forever, and now we get slapped with mandatory tournaments," said the 2003 US Open [ Images ] champion.

"We don't really have a whole lot of choices in the matter, which I don't think is the right way to go about it."

CONFLICT OF INTEREST

Roddick thought the men could learn from the WTA women's tour, which reorganised its calendar for this season and reduced the number of mandatory events from 13 to 10.

The American expressed his frustration that the people with the power to change things were often the same people who ran the tournaments, which was "a little bit of a conflict of interest".

The players were unlikely to boycott an event, however, he said.

"I don't think any of us wants to (strike), because even more so than feeling a responsibility to the powers that be in tennis, we feel a responsibility to the fans," he said.

"We don't want to alienate our fans. It's a tough situation, and that's why I think that we've put up with it as long as we have."

Spain's Rafa Nadal agreed with the American that the playing year was too long.

"It's impossible to play from January 1 to December 5, no sport can do it," said the world number two. "I don't know what the solution is, but it must be changed and soon."

I think so, yes. Even if he doesn't play another match till TMC, you'd need something like this to happen:

Sod + Tsonga each win a masters, and a 500, and make sfs in the other masters = +1860pts
Verdasco makes both masters finals, and a 500 final = +1500pts


Mathmetically possible, but not going to happen - almost certan they'd meet earlier than finals and knock each other out of contention. Just not enough events left, and tiredness/injuries will likely hit too.

Tsonga is already maxxed on 250s so can't gain anything there either, Verdasco isn't scheduled for another 250, and Sod can only pick up +115 by winning Stockholm as he already has a challenger win.

Oof, bad luck for Andy. But honestly, I'm not too surprised. Still I did have a facepalm when Andy retired.

I'm not disappointed, really. But I think Andy really worked himself to the bone just to get to that Wimby final and he burned out after it. You'd think losing so many pounds would help keep less weight off his knees, but Andy always was kinda heavy-footed.

Someday I hope something cuts him some slack and he gets a wonderful run.

For now, rest up, Andy~ I don't think he's a lock for the ATP Tourney, but the specifics for him to not make it don't seem likely, so yeah, hope you make it to the year-end championships!

Choking away a Grand Slam Final to Federer is BAD. And as a result he stayed being a One-Slam-Wonder. BAD again.

Anyway, people care enough about WTF? I Hope London makes the best of that. And personally, I do think London can make it more popular/interesting than Shanghai TMC.

What exactly was Stan's point in mentioning that Andy has now retired twice against him after only a few games? He should consider himself fortunate. The last time they played a proper match Andy won in straight sets.
