    He never heard his ninth symphony because he lost his hearing. I've never heard of him starting a tenth symphony. If he did, it was probably because he died before he got too far into it. Beethoven was known for re-writing his works many times before he was satisfied with a composition.

    Because when he reviewed his efforts, he thought the whole thing was just too Swede-sounding for his own taste.  So he abandoned the entire effort.

    I am sure he died before he had a chance to finish it.
