London: A pair of Frenchmen retired on Thursday from Wimbledon singles matches, raising the total of players pulling out of the second round to nine, which equals the Open era Grand Slam record for one round.

Michael Llodra cited hamstring problems for forcing him to stop after dropping the first set of his match against 23rd-seeded Andreas Seppi of Italy. Llodra then played and won a doubles match with partner Nicolas Mahut.

Paul-Henri Mathieu quit while trailing 6-3, 5-1 against Feliciano Lopez of Spain.
