2003 Dec 05 - Honda: Jeremy Bates forced to retire

Yesterday Jeremy Bates followed up his defeat by John McEnroe by a superb 6-4 6-4 straight sets victory against Mats Wilander.

So today would decide whether Jeremy would qualify for the semi-finals by finishing in one of the first 2 positions in his 4 man ACCORD GROUP. However, a disappointing 3-6 first set defeat against Guy Forget turned to retirement as the former British No.1 was forced to withdraw from the match.

With John McEnroe undefeated in the group there was no question he was on his way to the semi-finals, and it was Jeremy's opponent today who followed Mac into the last 4.
