Wimbledon suffered a record-equalling 13th injury pullout on Saturday when Dutchman Igor Sijsling quit his third round match against Ivan Dodig of Croatia.

Sijsling was trailing 6-0, 6-1, 1-0 when he retired.

Dodig has now won two of his three matches at the tournament by retirement after Philipp Kohlschreiber quit in the opening round.

There were also 13 pullouts at Wimbledon in 2008.
