I somewhat agree with you. I think it is unexplainable to win a major tournament and be fit and healthy and then stop playing. Sure he could have taken 6 months off and came back refreshed. It will also explain why he was playing so many exhibitions against younger men between 2006 and 2011. He won't say but I think deep down he must feel he made a mistake retiring at that stage.
