    There used to be a day, when you had to be half dead to retire from a GS, specially a semi or a final. What's going on? Should we get used to this?

    I hope not.

    I find it to be extremely annoying. There's just been too many drop outs lately. RG seems like Swiss cheese this year. :mad:

    Yeah but look how many retirements Mauresmo benefitted from at the Aus Open, even in the final for crisakes. Just imagine if Fed or Nadal retired on Sunday! What's up with pro tennis these days?
