Seriously... it's RG09 all over again. The thing that's most hurt is his ego. As per usual.
Roger spoke about back pain when he lost against Berdych at Wimbledon 2010. Now just before SF he is talking about back pain again. Are we bitching about this issue? At least I don't.
Let me remember, Rafa was defeated on USO'09, WB'11, USO'11, AO'12 ... did he played the injured card too?
Rafa must follow a treatment for his knee at least 2 times every year if he pretends to continue playing tennis. And maybe even that's not enough at some point. Chronic tendinitis means after some time of intense physical activity he must take a rest and treatment. There are many athletes who suffer chronic injuries and they regularly also have to stop their activity and take some rest and treatment. And nothing happens. But we all know that whatever happens to Rafa, everything he says and does is evil
