I don't get his program. He's gone from Panama on clay across the ocean to clay in Italy. Stayed in Italy but this week on hard. Next week still in Italy but back to clay. Then back across the ocean all the way to Vancouver on hard. And then Rogers Cup in Toronto.
I realize there may be good reasons and a good plan behind this, but to an outside observer it looks unfocused and just too much.
