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.
