..Therefore, technically, a complete match was played

I can think of :

2009 USO SF K.Clijsters d S.Williams 64 75, with Serena getting a point deduction down 46 56 15-40 thus resulting in a loss

2009 USO 2rd As. Rodionova d Lisicki 63 36 75 with Sabine rolling her ankle (and consequently what would have been retiring) down match point 36 63 56 3040

2002 San Diego 2rd Sugiyama d Hantuchova 64 16 75 with Hantuchova getting a point deduction (for taking too much time) at 46 61 56 1540:o

2001 YEC SF Davenport d K.Clijsters 16 63 76(3) Lindsay actually won the point despite twisting her ankle at 16 63 66(53) setting up match point , despite playing on one leg



Any more?

Barbara Paulus pulled out of her 1991 US Open match against Sabatini being match point down at 1-5 in the third set because she rolled her ankle.

^Thanks but doesn't that thread only cover injuries?? Several of my examples were actually code violation losses....

I thought Davenport tore a muscle in her knee in that Clijsters match from 01?

I think Cibulkova retired on match point once.

Do juniors count? Putintseva and Kolar did receive a point penalty at MP against Dabrowski in 2009 Eddie Herr/Orange Bowl.

Stanford '09 vs Sugiyama wasn't it?

Yep, you're right. I couldn't remember which match it was. Sugiyama was up 5-3 40-0 in the third. Strange for her to have been involved in two of these kinds of matches.

don't know if it was at MP but Chakvetadze once retired at 3-6 5-6, it was 2006 vs Voskoboeva
