Would have been a free slam and 5th USO tying all time record, and of course #20

Not much, his knees would suffer a lot and all the way there from Europe would be for nothing, since Novak wouldn't get another slam anyway. He felt that obvious wasn't going to happen. 20-19-17 was a comfortable enough, with RG awaiting.

Draw would be other. PCB would be seed 21 and maybe he would be in other quarter of draw.
Nadal is fine with 19-17 for now

Now kinda lol.

But he‘d be no guarantee to hold off some kind of murderers row of FAA-Thiem-Medvedev or smthing.

Ofc if Rafa had played, then Djokovic would have had a different opponent today, and likely never be disqualified.

If he knew in advance Djokovic would be disqualified for anger issues, then yeah

Even if he wasn't defaulted tonight, he wasn't going to win the USO. Your mind is full of obvious outcomes and those do not necessarily happen. He just wasn't good enough.

Probably none, as Nadal himself acknowledged there are more important things in life than just winning trophies and staying safe is one of them.

Nadal was such a pussy honestly, and now the karma bites him in return because Djokovic will probably aim for the French open, well rested. Interesting situation.
