There was some discussion in the Nadal match thread last night, especialy after the match, if Marcos Daniel was right to even play the Australian Open. He was clearly too injured to perform even at his own usual mediocre (for pro tour standards given his record) level. Yet he showed up anyway and collected significant prize money for a 1st round defeat. Was this right of him. Should he have withdrawn and allowed a healthy player to enter the draw. My perspective would be someone like him really benefits from the money and that is why he did not withdraw.
