My pick for Miami: Semis
that's so true...
he's constantly talking about agressiveness but still playing too passive especially against Federer

Re: 2012 RIT Competition /// Welcome to Miami Beach /// 1000 points to grab :-)

Well against Fed he has to break a winning habit, so it is going to be harder but it has to be done. He's had two bad defeats against him in three matches and Fed had plenty of chances in RG and AO. If he starts to lose to him outside slams more often he will start to lose at the slams too.

Plus he doesn't take advantage of the space on Fed's FH side enough, sometimes hitting to Fed's BH to his own detriment and when he does take Fed out wide on the FH he doesn't come to the net, so he gets a short ball back on his BH and we all know he can't do shit to a short ball with his BH. Happened a good few times on Saturday.

If he doesn't have a successful clay season things could get ugly.

Much as I would like to consider your pick it's too late. Take care and don't get yourself banned before Monte Carlo
