And why didnt rafa fake injuries vs federer in 2007 masters cup, vs Tsonga in aussie open 08, or vs del potro at us open 09? Or at last years end of year championships when he lost every match?
According to TW, he somehow knew that he would lose these matches and he didn't bother but he knew that a 4th set timeout at 2-1 with PP would definitely gift him the break as he read PP and knew he would crumble. He can only fake injuries against lower ranked guys.
