You know, when you consider the possibility that he really is clean, it's quite a sad story. The guy is playing great, is finally starting to win matches against Djokovic again, won RG. Then he suddenly has to stop playing because of injury (not the first time either..). This pauze takes longer than expected and he misses 2 Grand Slams, 1 WTF and the Olympics. This must be incredibly depressing.. but on top of that, instead of people showing sympathy for the guy, they're accusing him of doping.
Not gonna lie, I'd be ****ed.
well said, it's pathetic....it really caught me off-guard when it started, but what can you do..he'll handle it
