Weeeeeeellll he did say in an interview, ya know, when he was practicing with Zabaleta, that they both played at a high level. He said that like himself, Mariano had a terrible '06, so he hoped that both of them could make the finals of del Mar.
I guess that kinda made it sound like he really wanted to play.
However, ol' school Guille wouldn't let an adductor slow him down. He'd just get it wrapped up and roll with it.
If you ask me (didn't want to say this BUT now that Truc has put it in the air....), I think he's being shady
