What kind of injury does Youzhny have? Just watched the other match and missed the retirement.
Aja, Youzhny's chances to go to London ended here of course.

Youzhny has a back injury. Bizarrely Ernests gets through to the 3rd round with 2 retirements:eek: But it's not unique,or completely unexpected to me...its the end of the season,many players are exhausted or carrying injuries.

I doubted Youzhny would be fully fit,and he had added pressure of trying to qualify for London,proving too much for the Russian. Youzhny got sick and couldn't play Moscow,pulled out of Valencia injured...understandably under prepared.

Youzhny had back issues, resulting the back-to-back wins for Ernests Gulbis by two retirements.

Gulbis ratio: W/UE: 13/7 and 17/9 which is great and lot of aces as well.
He kept his concentration and broke 6/9.
Youzhny made the final in St-Petersbourg a week ago but retired from Valencia last week.

After badluck on draws lately, Gulbis deserved this win.
(Federer have encounterd 2 retirements during a Master last summer, so luck could happen to anyone.)

Misha could of easily played a few more games and played the sportsman.

he does this too often, always retires for small reasons.

Agree, and more so that Gulbis and Youzhny practiced together sometimes, Gulbis speaks Russian as well,
He was tired but it would have been nice to end the match to give Gulbis a real win.

gulbis's last 2 opponents may have retired but, be honest if they had tried to play one they would have lost anyway

Playing in St. Petersburg was a play of the year . Even ahead of Veradsco's decision to play in Nice . Well done General

Too bad Misha wasn't able to perform these last two weeks in Spain and France. Gave a big effort in St. Pete and didn't win the event and it really cost him. WTF won't happen for him, but he definitely should take a lot of pride for the season he's had.

Let's see if Gulbis can take advantage of these retirement wins. At least in his sake, he's not the one getting hurt, unlike the usual.

Hopes it isn't too serious with him.

But glad that Gulbis is still in it.

Not this year.

lol! Disappointing end to an excellent season. 2xATP250 wins, 2xATP500 finals, Grand Slam semi and quarter, and probably a top 10 year end ranking; nice work!

Verdasco's Nice decision was much worse in my opinion. After his best clay court season ever he decides to play a MM right before Roland Garros, that's tragic. At least St Petersburg was a home event for Youzhny.
