Per usual, this is a joke, he's playing like a scared schoolboy against someone outside the top 150 who's never been in this situation before. You have to laugh. How can you not? the other alternatives are depressing
I'm sure he'll leave everything out there to try to win, even if he continues to play like trash. The cost will be the two humongous tourneys he has coming up and allllllll the points he has to defend at them.
