Btw I'm not saying Rafa should have played USO, I'm simply suggesting the implications of skipping so many tournaments. Basically I expect Rafa to not get to even no 2 in the world until late next year.
Except he's not giving this stuff up voluntarily. He has no choice. No need to stir the knife in the wound at this point.
