Juan Monaco Shock Retirement in Kitzbuhel

Juan Monaco faced a clear moment of shock during the last clay court tournament of the season, played in Kitzbuhel. The Argentine was in control of his first round match against Robin Haase, having won the first set by 6-2 and having just started off the second set.
