Sorry for the late reply.
No, it's in Japanese only.

Don't you ever try to Google translate it, it will only add to the confusion.

According to his blog, he pulled muscle on his left calf as he landed after hitting a second serve on his advantage at 4-4 in the second set. He managed to hold that game with an ace but couldn't move after that. So he decided to quit. He withdrew from doubles too and will need two weeks' rest. It's a pity but that's life for a 35-year old tennis player.

Pulled muscle. Not surprising that a 35 year old can get injured.
People keep on imagining such things on MTF

Last week Odesnik retired being one break ahead in third set, I highly doubt he did that for his opponent's beautiful eyes

By retiring at this stage it just shows that he doesn't care about the results anymore. In my opinion, he can now be a club player, instead of a professional. The way the draws fall and the way the matches transpire matters to a lot of people (not just gamblers) and retiring at this stage of the match sends a strange message to fans, tournament organizers and other players. Plus he retired at this challenger last year, while up in the first set. Barring a serious injury where Suzuki actually couldn't play (which is very possible, and maybe someone that watched the match can fill us in ), I find this to be stupid behavior. Just try to beat the guy if he did not actually earn a position in the next round.
Much ado about nothing. It's the first round of a 35k Asian challenger.

I never heard of either of these two mugs, so the outcome of this match and consequently the entire tournament is irrelevant.

Waiting for gamblers to come ranting in here.

Maybe Lim is a very good friend.

He wasn't going to serve for the match.
