Interesting to see that tough players that run and fight for every point produce the most numbers of retired opponents.

1995: 1 ret.
1997: 4 ret. 1 w/o
1998: 4 ret.
1999: 2 ret. 1 w/o
2000: 4 ret. 1 w/o

Neely,
Thank you.

I wonder if you know how many of these retirements came when the retiree was leading versus trailing? It's my vague sense that players tend to carry on playing with an injury if they're up and near the finishing line. Is that generally correct?

Kolya

Never knew Kolya has retired so much.

That's very high for Davydenko at this stage of his career.

almouchie

any pete fans
cant tell me
where & when were his 6 walkovers?
I somehow cant remember it this much

Sofyaxo

I love stats.:hearts:

I think Davydenko's are so high because he plays so much and just keeps going till he has to stop even if it is mid tournament or match.

Kolya
03-10-2007, 09:49 AM
At this rate Kolya will get the record by a mile :D

Is there a player who is playing long time and never retired in ATP match ? I think Federer never retired.

Norrage
03-10-2007, 11:14 AM
Yeah I would like to see the record of players that retired the least...

Players with the least retirements since 1992:
(minimum 300 matches played - qualies, Challengers and everything below do not count)


The 1st number is the total number of matches played following the above applied criteria
The 2nd number is the amount of retirements in these matches since 1992
The 3rd number is the % of retirements: (retirements / matches played) x 100

http://img2.menstennisforums.com/727/Playersleastretirements.gif
Ranked by retirements (ascending), then by number of matches played (descending)





Players of this list which never retired and never gave a walkover:
- James Blake
- May Mirnyi
- Olivier Rochus
- Fernando Vicente

Would you know offhand, is Hewitt about 3-4 retirements?

That's right, he retired 3 times.

Toronto AMS 2006, 2nd round vs Johansson, Thomas 6-3 3-2 ret.
Montreal AMS 2005, 1st round vs Serra, Florent 4-3 ret.
Los Angeles 1999, QF vs Agassi, Andre 5-4 ret.

walkovers:
Bangkok 2005, QF vs Srichaphan, Paradorn
sHertogenbosch 2002, QF vs Clement, Arnaud

thanks neely :worship:

you know what, if you do a stat which corelates least retirements with most opponent retirements (well, you work out that formula :) ), i think arnaud clement should pretty much be sitting near the top if not right there :lol:

glad there's one stat in which he shines so brightly :lol:

David's only retirement came in the match which could have been one of his greatest wins.:sad:

No wonder Sampras won.

Just kidding, people. It remains among my favorite Pete wins.

No wonder Sampras won.
lol! ;)

BTW, if you meant in post #8 that most retirements are coming when the retiree is down (either in the set and/or by sets), you are right.

But it is hard to say how long and if they keep on playing because the scoreline does not tell you when exactly somebody injured himself (which might have lead to the retirement later).
