PHM just left the court with a supposed calf-injury. Looked like he just didn't bother to finish the match seeing he'd almost lost it anyway.

Troicki's body language was pretty telling - didn't think there was anything wrong with him.

He's been such shit these past few months, I think he mentioned in an interview a while ago that he was just really tired, bad way to end the season though :awww:

Troicki retired at 0-3 at their last encounter and now it's PHM's turn to retire :lol:

:o PHM asked to see the trainer and stopped the match while Troicki was serving 5-6 adv. Good that Bernades told him he had to wait until before TB. :tape:

Mathieu had setpoint at 6:5 and Troicki served 3 aces in a row, 13 in the set :o I think anyone served so many aces in a set in Paris since Philippoussis.

Yeah, court 1 is a nice court for the big servers, same thing happening last year. Hanescu is averaging about 1 ace per game atm, as did Kubot earlier, and Karlovic had 21 in two sets.

:lol: Now it's 1:1?

I haven't seen that. Doesn't sound fair at all, but good result for Viktor anyway.

I would hope it was a real injury. PHM had just sprinted to the net in a vain attempt to get to the ball, before talking to the umpire. I wouldn't think a player would want an immediate injury time out if he wasn't really injured. But, he didn't look like he was limping and even had a set point later in the game. With PHM being so mentally inconsistent, who knows?
