Four player retirements, two against Top 5 players, raised questions of first-round money-grabs by players while already injured on Tuesday on the men’s side at Wimbledon.


World No. 2 Novak Djokovic’s opponent Martin Klizan of Slovakia retired in the second set trailing 6-3, 6-2. No. 3 seed Roger Federer’s opponent Alexandr “The Dog” Dolgopolov retired trailing 6-3, 3-0.

“There’s got to be a rule for guys who come out clearly not giving or able to give 100 percent,” said BBC commentator John McEnroe on the two straight retirements stunning fans on center court. “It’s no good for anyone.”

Also retiring were Serb Janko Tipsarevic at 0-5 against American Jared Donaldson, and No. 19 seed Feliciano Lopez at 5-7, 6-1, 6-1, 4-3 against France’s Adrian Mannarino.

“I always try to have that mindset that I am fighting for the trophy, just like everyone else,” said Djokovic, who can re-take the No. 1 ranking if Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal lose before the semifinals, after his win. “And tennis is a sport that allows you to have this opportunity over and over again, literally every other week. Even if you lose, you can still bounce back and make a good results in few weeks’ time.”

Djokovic will next meet 22-year-old Czech Adam Pavlasek, who beat American Ernesto Escebedo 6-7(7), 6-1, 6-3, 6-1.

Federer won his 85th match at Wimbledon, making him the new Open Era leader. He said records and rankings don’t matter much to him at this point.

“It’s secondary to the love for the game I have, how much I love winning,” the Swiss said. “Rankings get shoved aside a little bit for me at this stage of my life.”

Federer and Djokovic after their retirement wins said they had a locker room discussion about possibly playing an exhibition set for the fans, but it never came together.

Top 10 winners joining Djokovic and Federer in the second round were No. 6 Milos Raonic who defeated Jan-Lennard Struff 7-6(5), 6-2, 7-6(4); No. 8 Dominic Thiem efficient against the dangerous Vasek Pospisil 6-4, 6-4, 6-3; and No. 10 Alexander Zverev dispatching Russian Evgeny Donskoy 6-4, 7-6(3), 6-3.

Raonic dropped 20 aces on his German opponent. The younger Zverev will next face American teen Frances Tiafoe.

Lower-seeded winners into the second round were No. 11 Tomas Berdych who beat Frenchman Jeremy Chardy in four, No. 13 Grigor Dimitrov, No. 15 Gael Monfils, back-from-injury No. 17 Jack Sock who needed four to get past Chilean qualifier Christian Garin, No. 23 John Isner, No. 25 Albert Ramos, No. 27 Mischa Zverev, and No. 29 Juan Martin del Potro who topped Aussie Thanasi Kokkinakis in four.

Former grasscourt title winner David Ferrer also moved into the second round after an upset of No. 22 Richard Gasquet 6-3, 6-4, 5-7, 6-2. Ferrer, who many have written off at age 35, hasn’t lost in the first round of a slam in 12 years.

Matches to look for on Wednesday at the All-England Club include (1) Andy Murray vs. Dustin Brown, (4) Rafael Nadal vs. Donald Young, (9) Kei Nishikori vs. the net-rushing Sergiy Stakhovsky, (14) Lucas Pouille vs. the combustible Jerzy Janowicz, and (16) Gilles Muller vs. upset specialist Lukas Rosol.

RZ Says:

Dammit, I had Feli doing well here.


Wog Boy Says:

“There’s got to be a rule for guys who come out clearly not giving or able to give 100 percent,”

Really, and how do you draw the line who are you going to punish and who are you not going to punish?
These players earned their place in the main draw by playing all year around and having the rankings that gives them that opportunity to play Wimbledon. As much as Β£35K will come handy for Tipsy, Dolgopolov or Klizan, I am pretty sure Kyrgios couldn’t care less about Β£35K, he wanted to give it a go even it was very visible he didn’t even try to chase the balls, his serving was affected by hip injury, no one single drop shot he tried to chase, finally he realized that he is making his injury worse and retired. On the other hand, Tomic looked last night like somebody sent him on court as a punishment, that man is disgrace.
Players are giving a go, even if they had some injury concerns, hopping that it might go away and incentives are miracle win, second round …and more money, and they earned that right by playing all year around often for peanuts, you can’t take that right and opportunity from them.


t4t Says:

Grand slams should adopt the rule that players in the draw who withdraw before the first round due to injury be paid the same amount as first round losers so another player can be substituted.


chrisford1 Says:

It was Roger’s idea to go to Novak after the Dog did his do and dumped Round 1. It would have been great for fans if Fed had made it happen, but Wimbledon or Nole said no. Credt to Roger for trying to make it happen.
In past years, I think Novak would have been game…even eager. But finishing well before Roger, he was likely wrapping up post-match icing and physio and made other plans. I don’t know what plans if any.or if he wanted an unavailable coach to be there. BUt it appears after some big personal problems – he will place his schedule with his wife over a super impromptu Exo.

Clearly, the market hunger is there for some Fedal Exo, or Djokenads, or Rogenovak down the road.


Okiegal Says:

@Wog Boy 7:03…..Serena’s coach Patrick M. made the same point you did. He says these players need the cash to keep on surviving . They have coaches to pay…..just every day expenses going from one tournament to the next. I see that side of the coin too. So where would you draw the line? The fans will just have to pay the price of the tickets and cross their fingers for healthy players who can compete. I mean when you buy these tickets way ahead of time…..anything can happen…..sad but true. I am dying to go to Mason, Ohio to try to see Rafa play in the flesh just once…..if I got tickets early….well I might see him and I might not……that’s the real thing, no?? Lol


Wog Boy Says:

Okie, if there is the one who shouldn’t be paid it has to be the one who openly shows disrespect for the game and tennis and last night it was Tomic, not Klizan, Tipsy, Dolgopolov …these are few of his quotes after the mach yesterday, former Aussie players are filthy with him:

——-
“I don’t know why, but I felt a little bit bored out there, to be completely honest with you.

“So I feel holding a trophy or doing well, it doesn’t satisfy me anymore. It’s not there. I couldn’t care less if I make a fourth-round US Open or I lose first round.

“To me, everything is the same. I’m going to play another 10 years, and I know after my career I won’t have to work again.”
———-


skeezer Says:

“Clearly, the market hunger is there for some Fedal Exo, or Djokenads, or Rogenovak down the road.”
Uh… no….just no.


Wog Boy Says:

This is one of the articles about him from respected newspaper and the papers, TV news… are full of articles about him after last night “performance”, Navratilova wants him to quit and stop playing, consensus is they are fed up with him and embarrassed that he represents Australia:

http://www.smh.com.au/sport/tennis/is-bernard-tomic-trying-very-20170705-gx4x9b.html


chrisford1 Says:

The Australian tennis community is so ticked at Tomic they are asking he and his family be deported back to Germany as undesirable aliens.
Australia really could do a number on Tomic if they wanted to. Ban him from courts and training/recovery centers Team Australia runs. No Davis Cup, no exos at events Australia Tennis controls.. Suggest that the UAE wants him to swap citizenship.


Okiegal Says:

@Wog Boy 11:18……..Yes I agree totally…..Bernie needs to be
banned!!


Margot Says:

At least Tomic is an honest dick, whereas his dad is simply a scumbag.


skeezer Says:

Margot! Was that errrrr…a sexist statement? 😏


Margot Says:

No skeeze, “scumbag” is completely gender neutral….;)


Wog Boy Says:

The only way Tomic, or any other Australian citizen, can be kicked out of country and strip of his citizenship is if he has dual citizenship and is involved in terrorist activities.
Now, I don’t know if he has second citizenship, like approximately one third of Australians have, but I believe good barister can prove his (and his father) terrorist activities towards his fans, let’s hope he has dual citizenship;)


Colin Says:

Wog Boy, I don’t think you should treat anything connected to terrorism lightly. Many Australians, Brits, French and other citizens of Western lands, have lost their lives in real terrorist attacks. Invoking anti-terrorism laws for the trivial purpose of bsnning someone from a tennis court,devalues those lost lives,and I think any lawyer doing so would meet strong disapproval from the public.

Regarding Andy’s match with Brown, there is reason to be confident about the Scot’s chances. Dustin, as I remarked recently, has a history of letdowns after a virtuoso performance. Against Bublik, spectacular, so maybe a letdown against Andy?


Colin Says:

Damn! I invented a new word: bsnning.


squirrel Says:

@RZ

Me too RZ! Damn Feli messed up my bracket. Now , I’m floating in the middle. This is so much fun! Should have joined you guys a longggg time ago :)

Thanks!


squirrel Says:

@WogBoy

Yes, agree, Tomic is a disgrace!! He even admitted that he didn’t care about winning a match, let alone a trophhy, and that he still wanted to play for 10 more years to ensure that he’ll never have to work every again. Disgusting, but very smart plan nevertheless…


Wog Boy Says:

Colin, I won’t respond generally on your comment since you obviously took it wrong way, but will make comment on this one:

” Many Australians, Brits, French and other citizens of Western lands, have lost their lives in real terrorist attacks.”

Why so selective, what about other victims of terrorism like Russian victims, literally thousands of them, including school kids in Beslan, Saint Petersburg, Moscow… or maybe their lives are not as worth as lives of “Western land citizens”?


Berghain Says:

Hey WB,
I agree they deserve to be there cause they earned it and need the cash. What about the ticket holders though, I would feel ripped off and god damn pissed off – specially if I found out the injured player knew he would not play the full match. Whats your take? from the perspective of the ppl spending money to watch these matches.


Berghain Says:

WB try find a balanced article on the bbc website concerning Russia, you wont. Cause in there eyes Russia is bad, paranoid. God forbid they have to say something nice about them. IF there is an article where they could mention something positive they will omit them completely. BBC is trash, its that simple. German papers are way more balanced. This has nothing to do with Colin, just thinking if this is where most Brits read there news it comes as no surprise they are part of the anti-russian hysteria. What-ever gets you clicks I suppose.


Wog Boy Says:

Hi Berghain,

Good to talk to you, even you are Roger fan;)

I agree, I would be pissed if I bought the ticket to watch Tomic, but I guess that’s the risk that ticket holder is facing when he is buying ticket for any event, rock concert, football game, theater…whether they are going to perform for your satisfaction or not, you as a ticket buyer are taking that risk voluntarily so you can’t blame performers for underperforming or tanking.
The most stupid thing in Tomic press conference after the match was when he compared himself and Roger after he was asked by one of the reporters whether he contemplated of giving money back? His answer was “why don’t you ask Roger to give back $500 million..”, I mean, he is imbec€ile, real one.


Margot Says:

You don’t know whose going to play on which court till the day before I think, so people might not have signed up for Tomic.
Of course Centre and 1 will get the top players.
I agree the comment about Roger was just idiotic. Sounded as if he was saying Rog loses matches because he too is “bored.” Don’t think he’s the brightest sparkler in the box.


Berghain Says:

500 million! to funny.

Well I agree ticket holders take risk, but if a player knows he wont compete that sounds premeditated to me. Doesnt that almost border on fraudulent? Its like asking ppl to invest with a promise of 16% return, knowing that the project will go bust in advance. I guess its impossible to weed out these cases.

Yes nice to see you here too, ach im a Fed fan but dont take it all to seriously. Its just a game after all. I do get annoyed sometimes by what I read here.


Wog Boy Says:

Berghain,

I agree with Matgot, Tomic is just…well Tomic.
Tomic is trying to play Kyrgios, like “I don’t care about tennis, I like basketball”, but Kyrgios is far sharper and more cunning, Tomic is plain stupid copycat, as simple as that.


Wog Boy Says:

^^^ should say “Margot”, my apologies.


Berghain Says:

yeah that Tomic has mental issues. Maybe he cant loose. Thats why he decided its easier to pretend he doesn’t care, he thinks it makes hum cool. Fragile Ego.


Margot Says:

Apology accepted Wog Boy. At least you don’t go around berating people for their spelling/use of English and then spell a person’s name wrongly.
And yes Colin, I’m looking at you.


Wog Boy Says:

@t4t,

You are right, I didn’t know that that rule already exists on ATP tournaments, but not on GS ones which are governed by ITF. Both, Roger and Nole, agreed after their opponents retirements yesterday that GS tournament should introduce same rules as ATP, meaning if player is injured and pulls out prior first match he is fully paid and lucky looser take his spot. At the present in GS you won’t be paid unless you turn up for your match and hit one ball.


Wog Boy Says:

On the brighter note, Rosol has a hot girlfriend…and Azarenka is in good form.


Daniel Says:

Rosol had a few MP in fifth set but Muller saved those and just close the match. He could be NadalΒ΄s 4th round opponent.


chrisford1 Says:

WB – Great to have Mommarenka back.

As for deporting, maybe the pissed off Aussies can’t get rid of Tomic that easily, but they can pull a lot of support he and his riding on his status sister, presently enjoy – in free or subsidized use of training/physio people and facilities of the national program. But then again, some Australians are like the Americans that support black thug criminals in college and pro football, just as long as they WIN! WIN! And those Aussies will back Tomic in green and gold as long as there is a chance he can win things.


RZ Says:

@squirrel – I’m stuck in the middle with you! Why did Feli have to get injured? He had done so well in the lead-ups.


James Says:

John McEnroe spewed nonsense after Dog retired yesterday. He has had this pet peeve against best of 5 matches and not having a tie breaker in the 5th. It doesn’t matter what happens, he always brings it up to use it as an excuse to push for that.

Its total nonsense to suggest that the retirements happened BECAUSE the men play best of 5 matches, or BECAUSE there are 3 slams where there is no tie break in the 5th.

This happened in the first round! how could the slam be responsible for those pre-existing injuries? Fact is, mens game is really physical. players get injured. Period.

Now about best of 5 – only the 4 slams have it – that is the special part of it. Removing that really makes the slams nothing more than IW or Miami, that play almost an equally large draw. Second – less than 1 in 10 best of 5 matches actually go to a 5th set. OF THOSE, less than 1 in 10 matches go beyond 8-6 in the 5th. So basically there are less than 1% of matches that would be shortened by having a 5th set tie break – so how does that help? It just takes away that rare bit of excitement and create some classic matches. Yes, Isner Mahut went 70-68. That was a freak event. The next highest 5th set at Wimbledon that I can remember was 16-14 Fed Roddick.

There is something special about slams. You can’t just play a great 45 minutes, win a set and a break and you are almost done. You need to clearly show you are the superior player to win a best of 5, since you have to win 3 sets, not 2. And there is a rest day between matches – if there are a couple of stadiums with roofs (most have it now), then there won’t even be rain delays upsetting schedules. Then what is the rationale to argue for stupid changes like this?

Then there is Chris Evert. For these guys, they just want entertainment, not sports. Always arguing for removing Ad court scoring (at 40-40 deuce, the person who wins the next point wins the game). this is not powershares tennis – who, BTW, hardly anyone watches. Because its not even considered legitimate tennis – that’s just an act.

The most legitimate victories are winning 7 best of 5 matches to win a slam in a 128 player singles field over two weeks. The normal way with ad scoring and no tie break in the 5th. Otherwise might as well make mens tennis like womens. Boring.

Johnie Mac should stop rambling and shut up.


James Says:

US open has a tie breaker in the 5th. This rule only alters less than 1% of the matches played at the USO (that reach 6-6 in the 5th) – if this is such a big “help” to players, then why suggest a rule that doesn’t “help” 99% of the matches? All it does is take away the excitement in the 5th that you can ONLY win by breaking serve.

Fed couldn’t break Nadal’s serve EVEN ONCE in the 2008 Wimbledon final. It was only fair that Nadal won that contest 9-7 in the 5th. Fed could have ONLY won by breaking Nadal’s serve in the 5th. Had their been a tie breaker in the 5th set, Fed could have won by winning the third consecutive tie-breaker – I think there is something not right about that.

Ad scoring is equally important here. Otherwise breaking serve amounts to winning a single point from 40-40 onwards. You leave much more to chance then.

Give skill more of a chance than luck. And of course, fitness is an important part of any sport. And tennis anyway is played on a relatively leisurely schedule – for 60 minutes of match time, players barely play 11 or 12 minutes of actual tennis. Maybe 15 max. So a 4 hour matches amounts to less than 1 hour of actual play, and more than 3 hours of sitting, standing, wiping face, picking butt, whatever.


SG1 Says:

James,

I definitely agree that majors should be 3 out of 5. As for removing the tie-break in the 5th, I doubt that even the players want this. I think they also want to see the finish line. And TV execs just won’t digest matches that have no end in sight. Those times are long gone.


SG1 Says:

Pretty sure Mahut and Isner never want to go 5 sets at Wimbledon again. Better to lose in 4 sets and save your year.


RZ Says:

@Squirrel – I said I was stuck in the middle, but I’m actually way down at the bottom. LOL. I have hopes of rising up as we go later, as Feli was my only significant loss and others chose Wawrinka to win. I lost some points because I chose Pospisil over Thiem, but I am happy to lose some points there if it means that Thiem is doing well.


Navdeep Says:

James I agree with you completely. But I think Nadal was broken in the 2nd set then he broke back n won the set


Daniel Says:

James,

You are wrong, Federer broke Nadal serve in second set and was up 4-1 in Wimby 2008 final, than suddenly lost 5 straight games and was down 2 sets to love, both sets 6-4. That second set was bizarre.


Daniel Says:

Seems Murrya is in fina form, up 2 sets in less than 70 minutes. Hope he can keep it up. The less effort he spends the better. I want top dogs to batte each other in later rounds.


Navdeep Says:

Murray won in straight sets that too by loosing just 7 games! Impressive stuff


Daniel Says:

Nadal continuing where he left of on clay, breaking almost every first service game of his opponents ealry in matches. Young was serving 40-15 and lost 4 straight points, including a DF 40-30 up.


Margot Says:

Well done Andy! Played rather well against a tricksy opponent. C’mon!


James Says:

Mahut-Isner is a red herring. Happened once in over 100 years of play – doesn’t make sense to let such a freak event drive rules.

As for TV times and players not wanting the match to go forever – again, less than 1% of best of 5 matches go beyond 8-6 in the fifth set. So is that really a problem? Again, its largely a red herring.

There definitely is that rare exciting part of a 5th set in a slam (except at the USO) where you KNOW that someone MUST break serve to win. I think its worth preserving given the cost is that 1% of the matches will go longer than 8-6 (that too, many of them end at 9-7 or 10-8). I don’t know if anyone has the stats, but it would be interesting to see how many of the best of 5 matches have actually gone longer than 9-7 in a fifth set (since the advent of tie breaks in all sets except the 5th).

McEnroe’s suggestions are hyping up a problem that really doesn’t exist.

As for length of time a match is played – how about bringing the surfaces and balls back to a stage where offense and defense are equally rewarding, rather than surfaces that reward defense more than offense? That would shorten points and matches. Nobody brings THAT up. And I am not saying it should be serve and done. But currently we have tilted the other way, where surfaces reward defense more than offense, so rallies keep on going on and on and on.


Colin Says:

@James
So women’s tennis is boring?
Utter nonsense. Some tennis is boring, yes, whatever the sex of the players, but are you seriously saying that Petra Kvitova,when fit, is boring? She is as exciting to watch as anybody on the tour, male or female.

@Wog Boy
I wasn’t being selective because I would indeed agree that many Russians are victims of terrorism. I meant countries whose inhabitants follow Western religions, as opposed to Islam or other faiths not based on the Bible. Since most if not all of us here are writing to an English language forum, I assumed that I didn’t need to list all the nationalities.

In any case, the victims of the greatest act of terror in history, carried out by the supposed good guys, were the citizens of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (deliberately chosen civilian targets).

@Margot Sorry I got your name wrong; it was merely a consequence of my inability to touch type. At least the pronunciation is correct!


gonzalowski Says:

Rafa winning, but he is starting with the rare faces, Rafa starts with the rare faces, of disgust. Hopefully he doesn’t have physical problems (knees). He’s shortening the points this game


RZ Says:

I’m not on the Medvedev bandwagon like some others. Seems like a very talented player, but I can’t stand his behavior. There’s this based on what happened today. http://metro.co.uk/2017/07/05/daniil-medvedev-gets-wallet-out-throws-coins-at-umpires-chair-after-wimbledon-exit-6757358/


gonzalowski Says:

The grandmother of Young (with the shirt that so credits) is total! She does not stop to comment the match.
Rafa has had some problem with the tapes of the fingers, the judge calls the “technician”

AndyMira Says:

Thanks M for the article!…I have to notify okie as soon as possible…she needs to teach her baby do this kind of thing…


Amit Says:

Tomic is such a loser clownπŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’ #BanCalling???


Truth Says:

McEnroe is the perfect Fed bandwagon sycophant.
He’s similar to his fellow cocooned, isolated Fed fanboys.
He tried to be unique but he wasn’t.
His sense of inadequacy infuriates him. He bemoans the fact that he couldn’t win Slams (unless his draws were full of injured or mediocre guys.
A walking contradiction. Full of classless lies on one hand and full of cute, nice words and pretty volleys on the other hand.
He hates Serena’s abusive personality and thinks she is #700+ on men’s tennis rank, but she is the “greatest” female player and “one of the best ever”. Interesting….NOT.


Etoilefixe Says:

Well, Medvedev’s antics with the coins were weird, but then, frankly, it is surprising Mariana Alves is still umpiring at all given her controversial decisions over the past 15 years.


chrisford1 Says:

Colin – 60 million Chinese under Japanese invasion would disagree with you especially the relatives of the 20 million the Japanese butchered – about “biggest act of terror”. The Germans of course along with Stalin’s stupid wastage of Soviet lives ended up with 30 million on the allied side butchered in WWII. The largest single bombing was Tokyo-Yokohama which burned 3/4ths of those cities and lead to 120,000 dead. HIroshima was 70,000 killed in c 20,000 Japanese soldiers and 8 US POWs, with 2 executed and 2 dropped off at the Aioi bridge to be stoned to death by the crowd. Another 8 US POWs were claimed, but it was revealed soon that they had died in Japanese medical experiments the previous 2 months. Neither city was a strike against pure civilians. Both cities had soldiers and many critical defense industries. 10,000 of those working in Mitsubishi ordnance factories in Nagasaki died. In Hiroshima – “innocent civilians” in weapons plants killed or incapacitated for years was approx 18,000.

US bashing also ignores that both Britain and Canada had to green light the A-bombings, as the program relied on both nations for help.. They did. It also ignores that the estimates to invade Japan without using the A-Bombs would cause mass slaughter. The casualty study concluded “In other words, in Olympic then ollow-on to Honshu island – we shall probably have to kill at least 5 to 10 million Japanese. This might cost us between 1.7 and 4 million casualties including 400,000 to 800,000 killed.” The Japanese agreed with those figures, though they called the US casualty estimates on the low side and agreed the A-Bomb saved millions on both sides.

Finally, you err in defining terrorism as a function of what armies traditionally do – kill enemy civilians and civilians ordered to become soldiers. It is not. It’s attacking targets of no military value simply to spread fear and divert a foe from higher priority conflict participation to make it ‘all about the terrorists” – who typically fight outside a nation’s control, who do not wear uniforms, and who specifically target enemy civilians outside any war production role. A nation can be terrorist, but it entails killing people out of uniform as the main objective to confuse and cow them. Dresden was borderline, as was Lincoln’s “killing his own people”, in Sherman’s March through the South.
