Question marks remain over Robin Soderling, Mardy Fish and possibly Gael Monfils.
Has this year been a record for player retirements?
Monfils injures alot but he is still young. He has weak knees and ankles. Soderling has been out more than a year I think and Fish is getting to the point of no return at least in ATP tennis terms.
