Re: Matches where players retired to prevent beatdowns?

Petrova did it when Ana was destroying her at some clay event, I forgot if it was this year or last? Actually I don't even know, maybe she was injured I can't remember

Re: Matches where players retired to prevent beatdowns?

Zurich 2007? Schnyder d S.WIlliams 60 30...being too tired to finish
a match is no excuse for retiring, sorry.

Re: Matches where players retired to prevent beatdowns?

I really never have worked out why people get so much sand in their pants about players retiring as if it mentally traumatizes their opponent is just the worst breach of fair play ever... I mean, sure... it sucks for the crowd to see a match that doesn't finish naturally, but it also sucks for a crowd to see a dull beatdown. The only person who really suffers as a result of retiring without genuine injury is the retiring player themselves, any player who is kicking someone 6-0, 3-0 or similar is 99% of the time mentally tough enough to realise they'd have won whatever, and if not... they need to get tougher and not allow such a trivial thing to bother them.

Re: Matches where players retired to prevent beatdowns?

Serena usually withdraws or tanks when she sees that Maria is playing well enough to give her a beatdown. Like she did in Rome and Australian Open this year.

I know this is the women's forum but this year didn't the commentators want Davydenko to retire, pretend he was injured just to get off the damn court and not embarrass himself further?

Hingis was on her way to finishing off Serena with a tasty bagel in their Canadian Open match when Serena "retired" with a fake injury
