I wish for once, he could be a gentleman and be honest. He should have said he was outplayed. That is the truth. Evans outplayed him. There's no tank here, and all that b.s. about saving himself for other tournaments is utter nonsense.
From what I read he was honest.
"He deserved to win. He was a better player. He was just more focused I guess and played with a better quality in the decisive moments.
"He's really a nice player to watch, not a great player to play against. Lots of talent. He's very unpredictable with his shots. He dismantled my game."
What else could he say?
