Even if it isn't faster, he's still a threat, but he needs better luck and more toughness than the last couple of years. I think he has become tougher the last few months, but needs to carry that into the US Open.

At Wimbledon, I agree that a favorable draw would help as you said, but even better would be if the weather gods help him. Intermittent rain and cloudy weather would keep the dust down and the base from baking hard in the sun, and the consequent high bounces once the grass wears down in the second week. If that happens, he is very dangerous there, but it's probably only a 1 in 6 chance.

At Roland Garros, he's a threat to win only if Rafael Nadal goes down somehow.


affirmative on all accounts.

i have to run to the store before the semi at delray beach.

will relpy to your post more adequately later.
