It's not only about being "injured" or not.
BUT the application of these seemingly harsh requirements is in reality very nice to players indeed (the even worst case is the suspension from a Masters 1000 tournament which is still in the rulebook and has never been applied whereas it should have been applied many times by the words of the rulebook)
