You can't know that. He hasn't back-peddled about other things he's said before which have been controversial.
And like I said, what he did this year shows otherwise. And he did quite a lot, only reaching the AO final (which he could well have won, you know, on Novak's best surface before his grandfather died), and won Montecarlo, Rome and RG beating Djokovic.

Could have fooled me.
You're predisposed.

Come on,Crisstti. Do you believe his knees magically stop hurting when he plays an exo? He has made dumb scheduling decisions throughout his entire career. Like playing Rotterdam(for the appearance fee)only a week after a gruelling AO where his knees were already bothering him. How about playing Madrid that same year even though he said he was in serious pain beforehand? Dumb decisions like that have cost this guy so much throughout his entire career,and those particular boneheaded decisions cost him most of the 2009 season,and his ranking. He didn't win a thing for a year afterwards. He does this type of stuff all the time,and is pretty much renowned for his dumb scheduling. He has still not smartened up about his schedule,and has more exos planned for next year,even though he missed most of this season with injury. You don't think that's senseless and ridiculous?
I don't think he plays them when he's in bad shape, like this year, when he didn't even play DC. Can't you give him some credit for that?.

But yes, he's made some less than brilliant scheduling decisions.

He isn't "so far below them". He hasn't been playing.
