I believe him.
At least that was how his level looked.
He didn't have the usual pace on the ball and making many errors on easy balls.
Poor timing on his shots is something that shows up without practice.
Movement was lackluster too, didn't see any intensity either, just all around not sharp at all.
Whatever the reason he can rest up now which is the best thing to do and get ready for the remaining tournaments while others are wearing down.
Good for Dimitrov to take advantage of the situation, many others still would have lost.
If Madrid put Djokovic and Nadal in opposite halves by draw rigging then it backfired. LOL
