    I don't think he's even injured at all. The way he and Nadal were complaining about the schedule being too long, it wouldn't surprise me if he threw the match in protest.

    He had freaking tears in his eyes, barely walked off the court, and flew to the US for immediate medical advice.

    If he was in so much pain, why is the recovery time so short.?

    You sprain your left knee, and let's see how you feel.

    Injury is emotional pain. For an athlete to get injured (possibly badly) is just heartbreaking. Obviously he would probably tough it out if he knew it was just a 2 week thing. He must have thought it was serious.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge roddick fan, but even I find it suspicious that mere days after complaining about the grueling schedule, he retires from his first round match before the first set was over. I saw the match, it really didn't look like he hurt anything, not like in july when he fell at Queen's Club and was clearly injured.
