As for the hiding. There was no need to hide after the Haas-match, while there is a risk of "hiding" now. I just hope, he won't.
I'm not saying that withdrawing because of fatigue is excusable. I'm just saying that if he withdraws, it's more likely because of that than because he wants to "hide".
I cited the Haas match as an example of how easily he is fatigued.
