He was trying to save his face. He will be healthy at AO, I guarantee it.

Allez Chardy!!

Allez Jérémy

Don't think Stepanek is seriously injured.

He took those timeouts in his last couple matches in Brizzy to get a backrub or whatever that was, it didn't seem all that serious, but he's an old man so maybe he's not bouncing back quite like he used to. Or it could have been the Australian champagne...

Better to not risk before the slam. Many people retire when they feel even the smallest pain in the week before, so it's not like Stepanek was the first to do it.

Comedy is a drama that happens to other people

What's the big deal? He didn't feel okay, was feeling back pain throughout Brisbane.

Just because clowns like Fakervic and Nadull pull tricks like these the whole time, doesn't mean everybody else is doing them too.

If he was injured then he shouldn't have stepped onto court, no? Isn't that your rule for any other player?
