Talk about sudden fatigue! 2012 Wimbledon quarterfinalist Philipp Kohlschreiber was up two sets over Ivan Dodig in their first round match. He then dropped the next two sets and was broken early in the fifth. Then he’d had enough. He simply said, “I’m tired,” and walked over to shake Dodig’s hand.
This was his explanation after the match:
Kohlschreiber in press: "I was tired and slow in the head and felt pain in my leg." #slowinthehead

So there you have it.
Kohlschreiber was one of four 2012 quarterfinalists to lose today. Tamira Paszek, Maria Kirilenko, and Florian Mayer all lost as well.
