So, Butt Picker withdraws from a charity event with an injury excuse, shocking. Below is a injury scorecard on him that I obtained from another site. Combine the following with the fact that there have been numerous times when he seemed to be injured mid-match, only to be seen sprinting around the court like a deer a short time later, and some people ask how some doubt his injury concern???
Remember, his Soderling loss at the FO was supposedly because of knee problems, too. Even though he didn't even have them taped (for the first time in ages) during that match.
2006 AO: Missed with injury
2007 Wimbledon: Medical timeout in 4th set of final against Federer.
2007 US Open: Tired, knee problems. Why he lost to Ferrer.
2009 French Open: Knee problems
2009 Wimbledon: Missed with knee problems
2009 US Open: Coming off long layoff for knee problems. Knees still bad, which is why Del Potro smoked him.
2010 Australian Open: Abdominal injury.
2011 Australian Open: Medical timeout in Ferrer SF loss. Can't move.
2012 Wimbledon: ?Tendinitis, no?
2007 Hamburg loss to Federer: ?I'm so tired and exhausted, no?
2009 Madrid loss to Federer: ?I'm exhausted from match with Djokovic, and I have knee problems that I will only talk about after losing in the French Open to Soderling, no?
2010 World Tour Finals final vs Federer: ?End of the year, tired, no?
2011 World Tour Finals RR vs. Federer: ?End of the year tired again, no?
2012 Miami, right before scheduled to play Djokovic after 7 straight losses if he wins SF: "Withdrawing from Murray match because of knee problems, no?"
BEFORE 2012 Australian Open, where he'd lose to Djokovic for the 7th consecutive time: "When I arrived here, I felt a loud CRACKKKKKK in my knees. in finals, it might be because my knees aren't 100%, no?"
Don't think that's an actual quote, but he DID mention some concern about his knees. It got old a LOOOOOONG time ago....
US Open wasn't knee issues. He had a torn abdomen.
Miami, he was clearly injured vs Tsonga and could barely move.
Australian Open, he made no excuse for his knee after losing to Djokovic. Knee tape was prevention/precautionary.
Clay season 2009, was struggling going into Madrid, almost withdrew from the event, played an exho before the French and was struggling, decided basically last minute to play the French although he had developed full-blown tendonitis in both knees.
2010 WTF loss to Federer, went out of his way not to discuss his fatigue. He overplayed in 2010, which lead to injury problems in the start of 2011.
I don't need to continue. Seems like you are basically making things up, and adding bullshit, to justify petty hatred. How small of you.
Should Nadal be trashed because his body fails him often? Is that his fault morally? Seems like some here think it is. It is Rafael Nadal's fault his body breaks down.
