and it still does not look like he wants to learn from his blunders.
on one hand he is crying about his knees. and on another he cant get away the hard courts where he is never going to win a single event again. as soon as he could come back he jumped on his indoor hard court.
it was never the stomach virus. it was the damn knee. he did not want to look or sound like an idiot so he told aussie organizers that it was the stomach bug. he made that knee worse by jumping right back on the hard courts.
it has been 3 years years since he has won an event on hard courts. he would be better off forgetting about doing well on hard courts.
so now with pain in his knee he just had to sign up for doubles also.
i mean why not just concentrate on his singles and save the knee.
my guess is that if he wins 3 doubles matches, he would have wasted away over 6 valuable, critical hours he could have used to work on his game in practice.
he could be chasing some impossible shot in doubles and screw that knee up for nothing. for nothing.
