Largest Winning Margins Before Retiring

03-27-2013, 03:54 AM
I'm sorry if this thread has been done before, I'm rather new here.

What are some of the largest margins a player has been winning by before retiring.

I'm blanking and can only this of that Djokovic Davis cup match I think versus Davydenko where Novak took the first 2 sets then retired.

Anyone like Voo got any info on this?

Are we taking a set won merely as a set won or would they have had to win each set in a large margin as well?

Paris 1998 - Rosset def. Krajicek 6-4 5-7 2-5 ret.

Pretty sure Krajicek was on match point as well...
