You're missing my point.
When you are used to winning everything and being nr 1 year after year, getting beaten by even one guy has to hurt, never mind 2. If nadal comes back, he's likely to be nr 4 - the guys a winner and a competitor and he will never win another major. That's enough to send champions into retirement usually.
