It's happening just the same, summertime is no good for Fred. A professional tennis player has to be stable mentally throughout the whole year to remain in the top ranking positions. And Fred's problem is basically mental, there's no thrill in his current gameplay.

I thought Machado would be different, but it has been proved that he was not mentally prepared for ATP tournaments. Then, he had injuries that didn't help at all for his confidence.

Hope that the same thing doesn't happen to João Sousa when he takes the step forward to play more ATP events.
