Matteo Berrettini has spent most of the season on the sidelines and just when it looked like he was going to be getting some luck on his side with a prolonged spell, that was snatched away.
Berrettini was facing Arthur Rinderknech in the second round and was down 6-4, 5-3 in the second set on the verge of going two sets down before he called it a day.
To quote Catherine Whitaker of The Tennis Podcast, he went down like a Grand National horse when Rinderknech was on advantage. He was shielded with umbrellas as he was checked on, with some fearing the worst of a serious injury.
It wasn't as bad as first feared seemingly with just an ankle roll. His dad actually came on court to check on him though before the physio came to his aid.
He still retired though and his rotten luck continues as the Frenchman moves through to the next round.
