Belgium’s David Goffin was forced to retire from his semi-final against Grigor Dimitrov at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam on Saturday after suffering a freak eye injury.

The 27-year-old was trailing 6-3 0-1 when he framed an attempted volley directly into his left eye and was unable to continue. It was not clear how serious the injury was. Goffin also suffered a bizarre accident at last year’s French Open when he tripped over a tarpaulin cover and injured his right ankle, forcing him to quit.
