is there a more direct or reliable source about Benito's words or is it a complete mistake from the website ?

Besides, somebody in the comments of this site says that Toni tweeted that they had "stopped the PRP injections" : does anybody have reliable news on that ?
This is probably the most likely explanation. Again, he didn't seem injured at Wimbledon.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
