Why would you continue to play if you're obviously injured and don't really have a chance to win? Is he just trying to destroy his arm?
Maybe he felt that the shoulder injury was not serious and that he would likely be healed in time for the R16 or QF. Michi in his current form may not have posed much of a threat, so it's possible he could win despite his serve. I don't know. In any case, I think it's classy (and indicative) of him not to retire.
