The most exciting part of Oliel's day arrived well before his match when he was invited to practice with Roger Federer, who was preparing for his duel with Mischa Zverev. Both men retired halfway through the second.
There have been a few complaints about the grass-court surface at Wimbledon this year, and that may have taken some of the luster off the world's most prestigious tennis tournament.
He next plays a familiar opponent, the similarly single-handed Grigor Dimitrov, who has yet to drop a set: his opponent Dudi Sela retired after two sets today. Neither of Tuesday's retirements made it to 45 minutes. I thought I might be able to overcome it, because I was also in pain against Isner and sometimes playing helps the pain go away.
Mr Klizan and Mr Dolgopolov were not the only competitors to disappoint in this manner.
Yet years ago, Mischa's career looked nearly as promising the young Sascha's has become: He reached 45 in the rankings at the age of 21 before a wrist injury saw him sink outside the top 1,000 in 2015 and barely climb inside the top 200 18 months ago.
But he got a rapid taste of what to expect in the first game as Federer on successive occasions smashed passing shots into his body.
Djokovic entered this year's Wimbledon without a Grand Slam to his name since Roland Garros last year. Not that the German, who was thumping in 77% of first serves in, was backing down.
Very little rain fell over the first six days of the tournament, which Mr Stubley said led to more wear on the courts. However, despite the shift in incentives, the number of first-round retirements has slightly risen as well.
Being the best he can be - twelve Grand Slam singles titles are testament to that. The only longer such runs in the Open era were by Roger Federer (36 in 2006-7) and John McEnroe (35 in 1984).
Rafael Nadal needs no reminder of the dangers posed by left-handers from Luxembourg after all his first taste of defeat on Wimbledon's lawns was against one such player. Yet the ATP's rule can not address the importance of a tournament like Wimbledon. It's obviously hard to make all second week for us, you know, when I'm not playing. And even when physically compromised, they are tempted by the further rewards, such as another £22,000 for a second-round berth. And between them, they had won 57 points at the net. She plays second-seeded Simona Halep of Romania. He later fell behind 4-2 in the opening set.
The second set was much more routine for Federer, who with an early break looked as though he felt no obligation to push the tempo, holding easily and on occasion nicking a point off the Zverev serve. However, the Austrian's game is better suited to clay than grass.
It's more than a young Murray could ever have dreamed of. I don't understand go to play golf, and don't try your best. In Halle in 2013 he did not even manage a game, while their two matches this season were closer but not that close.
Fourth-round action in the men's and women's singles begins on Monday.
If something must be done, a reasonable place to start would be with the players who retire much more frequently than their peers.
The British hope of Murray and "Royalty" in Federer have both been kept on Center Court with four men's matches kept on the bigger courts in Center and Court 1. Fans express displeasure at how players are scheduled to feature on court.
