Did the Scud just retire from a Legends doubles match?

First of all, was it The Scud or Leconte that had to retire from this doubles match? I can't find that info on the AO website. It's kind of sad that Philippoussis is playing in a "legends" match to begin with when he is easily young enough to be in the regular draw. But if he did in fact retire it just screams that he signed up to do this match full knowing that he wasn't in shape and was just looking for a little cash. Sorry if I'm offending anyone with my synicism about Philippoussis, but after the whole dating show fiasco I just have to shake my head at this guy.

He was invited to play in the legends event by TA to try to help his comeback along.

Does TA stand for tennis association?

Edit: Nevermind, Tennis Australia. I'm a little slow occasionally.

Anyway, the Poo should retire. I'm sure he would but he is probably going broke again.

Mark's match is rescheduled for tomorrow but as it is predicted to be 43c and no lower than 30c overnight, it looks as though there is a chance that many matches will be cancelled tomorrow as well.

Huh, they just postponed it because of the heat? Well I can understand that. There's no reason for people to get heat stroke when the match has no competitive implications.
