Unfortunately Colin Farrel Kiefer wasn't so lucky. He had to retire due to a TEAR IN HIS ABS. Dude has had *the worst* luck this year, rolling his ankle at Hopman and now this, right on the eve of another Slam.
Tough luck, Sauerbraten. Though, I'm a bit bummed we don't get a shot of some bratwurst. Missed opportunity, photogs.
