I can only assume he was burdened with the pressure of playing so close to home. He took far to long to find his game which is a shame because when he finally started to play well, he hit some great shots.
I don't know what was wrong with him today, but I don't think it was the pressure of playing in front of the big bulgarian support there. He played amazing in front of the bulgarian fans at Hopman cup
So next up - Davis cup, where he will face a lot of players without ranking
With that loss, we failed to defend the 45 points from Munich and next week he will be around #95 ... I think that the Olympics are getting far far away and with that game I don't see him winning even a Challenger ...
