PARIS, June 2 (Reuters) - Belgian 10th seed David Goffin was forced to retire from his third-round encounter against Argentine Horacio Zeballos at the French Open on Friday after slipping and hurting his ankle.
The in-form Goffin, ranked 12th in the world, was leading 5-4 in the first set when Zeballos, who had earned his first break point, sent a deep forehand down the line forcing his opponent to chase it to the edge of the court.
Goffin managed to get to the ball but slipped in the process, hurting his ankle. (Reporting by Karolos Grohmann, editing by Julien Pretot)
