David Goffin Retires From French Open Match After Tarp Fucks Up His Ankle

Belgian David Goffin played an excellent clay court season, beating Novak Djokovic in Monte Carlo and pushing Rafael Nadal to a tiebreak in Madrid, and earned the 10-seed at the French Open. He looked poised to at least challenge Nadal in a potential semifinal matchup, but today this tarp got in the way.

Goffin was forced to retire during his third-round match against Horacio Zeballos, and maybe don’t keep the tarp there?


Goffin is reportedly relatively okay, considering.


Ankles are not supposed to bend like this.
