I'm sure he will, so I hope it works. If he does get to the final it'll be either against Nadal or Thiem.
And talking about Thiem, I see Djoko's been accused of tanking in that match because "he looked like he didn't want to be there". I know he was asked about his loss in his press conference but, although I didn't hear the whole answer, I did hear Djoko saying that he would now consider his situation and decide what to do next. Is it possible he could be considering retiring from the Tour? I certainly wouldn't blame if he did because he seems to be going nowhere fast, which must be very difficult to deal with after all these years at the top.
It wouldn't be the first shock retirement in sport in the last year. I think it's unlikely but not out of the question.
