Default Nico Lapentti retires

Goodbye Nico, will surely be missed. One of my favourite players of all time.

Talented player, such a classy guy, leaves great memories from tennis for me.

Always remember his greatest year in 1999. Great player who mixes up his game very well with a lot of different spins.

.. Is it just me or did you use good riddance in the wrong context?

Anyway, good luck to the guy. Former world number 4 was he? Not sure, but I remember him being pretty high some time ago.

Vamos Nico. One of the smartest players on the tour, great variety, and an awesome fighter. Wish I had the opportunity to watch one of his epic matches live.

Yeah, you used good riddance in the wrong context. It means you didn't like him and are happy to see him go
