Gilles retired at 6-3, 1-1 . Hopefully it was just precautionary. He never should have come back this soon, hopefully he's ready for the Open.

Retirement? WTH. Gilles never retires from matches...well, he does when it's real bad. So is it real bad? Hopefully it's still the same issue, that it isn't a new injury or sth. *sigh* Damn that there's no stream.

Déjŕ vu huh? I remember last year being the one to break the news of Gilles' retirement from Cincinnati. I was very sad that I couldn't make it to Cincinnati this year, but with Benoit and Gillou having such a bad day today, I would've been more sad than happy.

This is a shame, considering it was such a great opportunity to get some much-needed points. Oh well. Bonne chance ŕ la prochaine mec!

He just needs to take time away from the court and recover. However long it takes. Annoying that there's been no way to see how he's playing in such a long time.

Man this is just so brutal. Stupid Pertussis bullsh## pretty much cost him a chance to get as close to the top 10 again as he could and have a chance at a better position for the US Open. Now who even knows if he'll play the US Open or not.

I could see him just going home to see the birth of his second child and just skip the U.S. Open. He could be refreshed, healthy, and relaxed for the fall season. I really hope it doesn't happen because I think I'm going to try to go up to the Open but it might be for the best.

He says he made the wrong choice coming to the US while his wife is expecting a baby and was not prepared. he wakes up every day with a new pain. He's coming back home and don't know about the US Open

Thanks Soulage, for the news.

As much as I'm sad about him missing USO, I hope he stays home to heal up and to be there when the child comes.
Hopefully he'll heal up by fall, in high spirit, and get himself back on track.

On a side note, Bartoli just retired suddenly. I hope Gilles doesn't ever pull something like this so suddenly but I worry because he's the same age as her and has a ton of injury problems too.

Default Re: 2013 Summer US Hardcourt Season, Allez!

Yeah, I've been thinking about the R word in terms of his career already before all of this stuff was going on with his health just because he's already going on 29 and he's at that age where any time he could just up and announce he's done. I mean now that he will have two kids at home and what not and the injuries coming more and more often who would blame him? But having already gotten a taste of practically what it would be like if he did, (I haven't even seen a glimpse of him since his 1st round loss at Wimbledon) I sure hope he will play into his 30s because I'm absolutely miserable right now without him and to think of how it's going to be when his absence is permanent just terrifies me.

The men more so than women seem to be having longer longevity and success later in age on the tour so hopefully that will motivate Gilles to keep on keeping on and look at guys like Haas who juggle a successful resurgence in their careers with a family in tow.

Bartoli retired?
That's kind of sudden. I read her itw now. Maybe she's having a massive letdown after winning the big one. I won't be surprised if she comes back next year or sth, when she feels fresh and motivated again. But if she doesn't, best of luck to her either way.

I'm not too worry about Gilles retiring any time soon though. I don't know, but I don't think he's at that point yet even though he does have a lot of chronic injuries.

I'm not worrying about the Frenchies are going to retire early. (Marion is an exception of course). Most of them seem to enjoy playing and have good career. Older generation sets good example that they can still play into their early 30s.
