Until 5-5.

Even with those winners, he still looked flat and not pumped up.

We're not going to see a "new Richard" - he is who he is and when he is feeling confident he plays the type of tennis (except the service returns) we all love him for. But even a short time off for injury or rest or an opponent who "owns" him can shatter that confidence in a millisecond - that's who he is and I've pretty much learned to deal with - still frustrating but not unexpected.
