The funny thing is Leonardo Mayer is third seed here so he got a bye into the second round and now a virtual bye into the QF of an ATP tournament. Not bad for a player ranked 64.

Even if that was true, who cares He lost a match, oh well. Players don't play well coming back from lengthy injury layoffs, nothing to it.

cilic v van der merwe was the only "real" one in recent years.

I think I read he was injured in the match but it wouldn't surprise me if he wasn't. when his serve goes missing and his confidence drops, he looks like the worst player to ever pick up a racquet

Cipo

Mayer would never normally double bagel Cipo, so I believe the neck problems must have been severe.

Injury isn't a problem... the guy has no basic idea about patience and point construction.

It's possible that he was in too much pain, but the pain is gone the next day Flavio is a good sport; I've never seen him do anything even remotely resembling bad sportsmanship on court, so I don't think he'd just retire to avoid a double bagel. Maybe I am a delusional fan, but I just can't see him doing it.

I don't think it's THAT bad to retire before getting double bagelled. I mean, who wants to lose that way? I don't think you can automatically brand it an injury though, I reckon if he was really injured to any great degree of severity, he would have thrown in the towel a lot earlier.

And you're one of the most rational supporters of any player on MTF!

Well, I certainly understand why a player would do it, but I think Flavio is too classy for that and certainly wouldn't do it to his doubles partner.

Flavio still signed autographs after his five-set loss to Cervantes at Wimbledon this year, when he played like absolute shit and wasted what will probably be his best chance to ever win a match at Wimbledon. He's not a prick and never unfair. I just can't see it happening.

And in reply to your earlier statement: I don't doubt he was dreadful beyond words. Those days happen, and they're happening a bit too frequently as of late. It's back to Challengers very soon.
