We’ve seen some funny business going on at the grassy grounds of Wimbledon. Over the first few days of the tournament we’ve seen players, retiring from matches, after going down a few games to quality players such as Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer etc.
Let me start off with, saying that if a player is truly injured then they by all means should be allowed to conclude a match over health concerns, nonetheless that doesn’t seem to be the case. Lower seeded players are basically jumping ship, because they can’t seem to handle being defeated. This is a sad event at hand. It’s bad for the players who go to these tournaments to play and compete, yet must stop a match early on, because his opponent doesn’t have the discipline to compete. It’s also sad and probably worst on the fans who spend a bunch of money to go see these guys play.
