ugh I hate him so much rn. Take the loss like a man, don't try to steal the moment from your opponent. If Fedr could continue until losing to John effing Millman, you can limp on one final set v Delpo
Big difference. That will be the pinnacle of Millman's career. Delpo did not care if Nadal retired. He probably preferred it. Why take a chance with a freak ankle roll injury or something like that in the third?

Of course Delpo wanted a legitimate win, which he was going to get. Same with Cilic in AO. These are competitive athletes.
You really think Delpo would be much happier if Nadal limped through a 6-0 third? I just can't imagine he cares. He cares he's in the final.
