I really wish the joker would suck it up and credit the opponent, instead of shrouding the whole thing with retirements and injuries. Every loss this year except for possibly FO has been surrounded by injury talk. This is what makes it hard to root for the joker. I am not saying he wasn't injured, but its the PR stuff and how it can undermine the opponents victory. Nadal has understood this and after a loss he refuses to be drawn into injury talk (See 2011 AO SF loss to Ferrer).
"The second set, he was playing great and was fighting... I have to give credit to my opponent, he was better," said Djokovic.
