Decoy model and opposing selectin forces?

In decoy model, in susceptible plant which is without R-prt or guard prt decoy prt plays the role of a sink and reduces the number of successful effector-operative gaudees interactions. While this causes reduction in pathoen fitness why the decoy prt should undergo evasive evolution which translates into higher pathogen fitness?
