oh noooooo, when I came home I immediately went to the scores and... oh nooooo, Rainer lost again
it's just horrible, must be horrible for him as well like for us fans. At least, I hope it is horrible for him, because if it wasn't, it would mean that he doesn't care about it what would probably the worst.
Well, like months already, I have really no clue what is going on with him
it's just so sad what happened with him. 2003 included, he improved his ranking every year of his career so far, and 2004, it's dropping like a stone in free fall
BTW, I'm not so sure if a sports psychologist is the solution for this problem. IMO people are too often crying for "please get a sports psychologist, blablablabla" etc. & etc... Sure, there can really be cases where something like a sports psychologist is needed, but it's also often the case that players can help themselves with any "breakthrough" victory, with any won match that gives much back what they were missing some time before.
Okay, at the moment, Rainer can't win anything, but I just don't want to believe that he has lost all his ability and fighting spirit within 11 months
just stay with him in future, it can only get better!
