Fognini should let Montanes win, if he was injured and know he won´t play Djokovic. But it is bad for the streak really. Djokovic has 41 wins this season, he must now win RG to surpass McEnroe´r record, before he just need to make it to finals.

It might count into streak, only 1st round byes dont count imo. This should count same as if he retired at 0-1*. He lost the match, his opponent moved on, seems like a loss to me. It will be written as a loss in Fog's stats, why it shouldnt be written as a win in Djokovic's stats?

In many ways this case does provide a case against having generous injury time out rules which enable injured players to progress.

Are you kidding? A day off is like water in desert for Nole right now. Sure, he cares about his streak but his priority is to win FO and get to no.1, and if he does that streak will take care of itself. If one player needed a day off it's Nole, after playing to many matches/winning so many titles lately. Besides, he's having having an extra day off, but he also had to play two days in a row against Del Potro. Nole had by far most difficult draw out of top 5 so far, so he's been tested and he's played enough to get into groove. Even if Fognini played it wouldn't have helped Nole's tennis that much as Fognini was dead tired and would have had to most likely withdraw from the match. It's not like Fognini in his condition would have given Nole a difficult match. Would have been good for the streak, sure, but winning FO/getting to no.1 is far more important.

What utter shit.

Good for Djokovic because rest for him is good and he has played three days in a row already. He's got the mental strength to be able to beat Federer and now he only needs to raise his game for 2 matches. Toward the end of the Gasquet match you could see him raising his game.

But, it is shit for the streak. Not that that matters anyway.

I also think it is unfair to Montanes. Okay, he didn't deserve to win if he can't use his brain to beat an injured player, but still, there would at least have been a match for the crowd to see. Now, there's one less match. At the end of the day you've got to be selfish if you want the points, not sure if he gets the cash since he hasn't played the round.

Not sure what the injury is, I mean, clearly it was a cramp. Or if it were a muscle strain/pull he still has a day, or two days? To play the quarters. Why withdraw now?

How many of you would leave a fortune on the table (and improved chances of doing better in the future thanks to seedings) just in the name of supposed sportmanship? And besides he had no way to know how serious his injury was when he was playing, and he pretty much did give the match away to Montañés, who refused to take it.

Are you sure? He did earn a QF spot, the prize money should reward that. If players didn't get money when they W.O. then they would instead just play a point and retire. Why doesn't Fog do that? we're talking about 75,000 euros he would get just for showing up, tanking a game and giving up.

He knows he will get steamrolled by Novak.

So he quits to say "see I was really injured".. What an artist!
Still... Montanes allowed this... Though his task was hardly simple since any ball Fognini could walk to was killed and most others were errors..

Fognini should let Montanes win, if he was injured and know he won´t play Djokovic.

What else was Fognini supposed to do? Drop dead on the court? Cos apparently it was the only way Montanes could finish the match in his favor.

does djokovic now move to the semis or does someone replace fognini?

It might count into streak, only 1st round byes dont count imo. This should count same as if he retired at 0-1*. He lost the match, his opponent moved on, seems like a loss to me. It will be written as a loss in Fog's stats, why it shouldnt be written as a win in Djokovic's stats?

I'm sure there was more to it than this. He probably got medical treatment and a diagnosis about the seriousness of his injury. He had time to assess the advisability of playing, and decided it was best for him not to play, and if he's not playing, surely he wants to leave the tournament as speedily as possible and start working on recovery. :shrug: It seems normal to me.

Are you among the top 50 people in the world in whatever you do? if you aren't, don't call Fog a pathetic loser because then you are a much bigger loser.

Not everybody can be number 1 or 2 or 3 in the world in their area. Being top 50 is an amazing achievement.

It's totally ok to support your countrymen and be proud of their achievements. But your arrogance and contempt for other players has nothing to do with that. You seem to be projecting your insecurities through your countryman's success.

Any time two professional players go into the match, both of them have chances. Maybe very small, but anything can happen. If Nole is doing so well, it's because he knows all players are dangerous and doesn't underestimate them. That's why you see him celebrating wildly after beating what you would call pathetic losers.

I'm far from a hater. I have complete respect for Djokovic as a tennis player and now that he has matured he seems a friendly and pleasant guy. And above all I know this is just a sport I follow for entertainment and not to promote a "us vs them" mentality.

Okay Sigmund,thank you for the psychoanalysis.It was completely wrong though,but hey,at least you've tried.And don't twist my words.I never called Fog a loser,I called him pathetic clown and that's what he is.I call Delpo The Cavemen 'cause he really looks like one,but I like him as a player and as a person
.So,I can like or dislike any player I choose and that's my right.It's about that,not about us v them mentality.And while you're in such a protective mood why don't you defend Troicki?He's # 15 in the world and yet he's been insulted numerous times at this forum.But,maybe you like Fog and dislike Troicki?So,in conclusion,Fog is a pathetic clown and that's what he'll always be.
