Retreat: Bounce vs Dislodge

My apologies if this has already been covered. In regards to retreating, is a territory someone was prevented from traveling to because they were dislodged considered a contested territory in the same way that a territory where a bounce happened is considered a contested territory?

Fleet in Spain attempted to move to West Med, but got dislodged by an attack
from West Med to Spain. Tunis got dislodged by an attack from Ionian. No one ended up in West Med so could Tunis go there?

That retreat will work fine. The attempt made by Spain is irrelevant. Enjoy.

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.

It is also worthwhile to note that:

"A dislodged unit, even with support, has no effect on the province that dislodged it."

So, in this case, F Spa-Wes would have had no effect on the province Wes during the movement phase also. Had another unit moved to Wes it would have succeeded if not otherwise prevented by the action of other units.
