I've never heard of anything like this but i thought it would be an interesting topic. I think Mary Pierce injuried her knee when she was closing out the match? She was play Zvonareva right??

I've heard of matches where a player has a slight injury, plays until they reach match point, but retire because they know they can't compete another day.

I think yes, when someone was beating Franny comfortably. 6-0 5-4? I think
It was pretty recent, and I think the person who was beating Fran was Meghan :o

I've always wonder about that.


Would be very interesting to see what the stat pros on this board can tell us.

Groenefeld led Sharapova 6-1 4-2 in Moscow 2005 before spraining her ankle.

Zakopalova retired from a twisted ankle against Pennetta in the finals of Vina del Mar.
Pennetta was up 6-4 5-4...
Sucky way to win a tournament..

I'm pretty sure Stevenson did. But she probably wasn't that injured, just more of bad sportsmanship than anything else.:o

I know the Chanda Rubin once retired when she was up 64 44 against Ruxandra Dragomir at one of the American clay tournaments in 2001. This would've been a win because Rux wasn't winning any matches during that time.

Fed Cup 2006

Ana Timotic (SRB) d. Anna Smashnova (ISR) 57 45 ret. :o

Smashnova had 3 MPs when she got injured, but I think she played some points after the injury so I don't know if she had MP when she retired or not.

davenport did her knee in on the point before getting to mp's against kim at the YEC in '01 i believe, she won 1 of her match points literaly on 1 leg and had to walkover the final.

Didn't this happen to Serena in 2005 Charleston I believe. She was up a set and up in the 2nd set tiebreak, then had that big ankle roll that I really believe set back her career the 18 months after. She then lost the tiebreak and forfeited.

I find in old tennis books and archives result of Stanford 2008 Quarterfinal:
Ai Sugiyama def. Dominika Cibulkova 6-7(4) 7-6(5) 5-3 *40-0 ret.

So Domi retire at triple MP result... to overtake her somebody in future must retire in Tie-Break at 2-6 or 1-6 or 0-6 results with 4+ MP's :eek:

Then she was out for 7 months before returning in Stanford in 2002!

2007 Berlin: Ivanovic bt. A.Bondarenko 6-3 5-0 ret.

I wanna think it was like 15-0 or 30-0 for Ana. It started to rain, and Alona was kind enough to just retire and not make Ana wait it out to win 2 more points or something.

Lindsay was close against Kim in 2001 YEC. She almost retired at match point, but she finished anyway, ended that year at No.1 and off the tour for 9 months...

wasn't Anna down 7-6 6-5 and retire, I don't think Voskoboeva had match points.

I remember someone retired against Gabriela Sabatini on her match point :lol:

That was Barbara Paulus at the US Open in the early 90es.

Wasn't Hantuchova warned a point penalty on match point down because time violation a few years ago at San Diego vs who...??????


Sugiyama...



In the pre-open-era that was a big deal retiring at match-point-up giving the opponent a bad win.
I remember reading someone retired at 6-0 5-0 40/0 up, because he hated his opponent, and wanted to cause a not nice win for him.

You mean Alona wasn't injured or anything just retired to let Ana have the match? Isn't that nice. :D

Sugiyama d Srebotnik at Eastbourne some years ago , Kata had to retire at the end of the match but there were no MP I think ... cant remember the score

To various posters: I believe the subject is retiring at MP up, that is closing out the match.
Fed Cup 2006

Ana Timotic (SRB) d. Anna Smashnova (ISR) 57 45 ret. :o

Smashnova had 3 MPs when she got injured, but I think she played some points after the injury so I don't know if she had MP when she retired or not.
Smashnova started cramping badly at 4-3, somehow broke her opponent, couldn't serve at all and got broken, and then at 5-4* took a point virtually sitting on court. Timotic that double faulted twice in a row to go 3 MPs down, saved them all and play was stopped at 40-40.

BTW, Peer then defeated Ivanovic in a tight 3-setter (her first top 20 win) and she and Tzipi won the doubles against Ivanovic and Krstajic 6-1 4-6 10-8(!) to win this tie which was the Round-Robin final and the last that the unified Serbia and Montenegro ever played.

P.S. amazing timing indeed to open such a thread, hours before the Sugi-Cibu incident :eek:

Unfortunately she didn't have any MPs...

But our dear Sunshine retired from the first-round match at the Luxembourg Open with a hamstring injury while leading Anne Kremer of Luxembourg 7-5, 5-0...
