Important question: when was the last time a player was defaulted from a main draw ATP main draw match?

Nalbandian against Cilic in the Queens final 2012?

I know Darian King was defaulted from a challenger tournament around two years ago and Shapo at the Davis Cup but I’m talking main draw ATP event.
He could face some serious repercussions from this. Not just fines. He might get suspended for a while. ATP does not like this sort of thing.

@Aussie Darcy I just remembered one. Delray Beach. Mannarino got Dqd for unsportsmanlike conduct. Was R2 versus Edmund. Let me search for when that happened.

Just checked. Was 2017.

Dimitrov was defaulted in a final in 2016 I think?

Why he got a game penalty in the first place? I was driving to work after 1st set tie-break and got here with him being defaulted, oombeleabable

i assume the atp will do more to nick than they did to someone who was actually convicted of assault. that isnt to stay that nick doesnt deserve flack or shouldnt be punished b'/c ofc he should. fortunately that chair was thrown in the open or he didnt kick someone while they were sitting in a chair.

btw would this count as default or retirement tech since he walked off?

lol ben called it, he is posted on twitter already if im not mistaken

nick is already on twitter
I think it is time he is kicked out of the tour. With all of his talent, he hasn't won a Slam yet, and is making a mockery of the sport.
tbh the bigger issue is that the media continues to hype him, lbr they dont know what to do with themselves once the big 3 go and are trying to find the next star who is not only marketable but also delivers on results. perhaps they shouldn't try so damn hard to find the next star and let it happen organically and fix their current issues.
