Balls, hope he's alright for Wimbledon.

Istomin with a good chance to put a first title on the board now.

Really shame it ended like this.

Baggy was playing really well during whole tournament and had right to think even about title here. I hope he will get better soon.

First grass final for Istomin, 3rd overall. Not quite without chances, but I wouldn't put him as a favorite against winner of second SF.

Havent seen Bags play this well in a long time. This sucks.

Worst thing is its too close to Wimby and not enough time to heal.

Marcos :bigcry: He just can't catch a break, and what an opportunity for another title gone, he was the better grasscourter still alive :sobbing:

On the positive side, Istomin is a really nice guy with clean strokes. I hope he finally gets his first title tomorrow, he has too much game to not have one.

Nooooooo, what happened?
His calf muscle went - and despite getting treatment it was sadly no good. So gutted about this, he had the title in his sights.

Best of luck to Denis in the final though.

Too bad about the injury for Baggy, but so excited for Denis to reach a final. I am really rooting for Deni now!

Baghdatis broke Istomin to go up 2-1 and was doing okay in his service game, and I come back to see he retired? WTF?

Went to net, called trainer. Wasn't any visible sign of it, no lunge for the ball, no sudden stop in pain. I'm guessing he was carrying it already.

Was up a break too, the matchup looked as comfortable as you would expect - he has no problem with the trajectory of Istomin's shots as quite a few others do on grass, then can take advantage of his superiority on return and attacking variety.
