Sadly, I agree with you. I'll still follow him, but I would not be surprised if he never gets back into the Top 100, much less be someone who is a title contender. I think it more likely that he quits the game within the next two years.
Well, Donald beats Fabio (I can't believe it's not butter!) Fognini 7-6(8), 6-3 in Vienna. I take back everything I said. Look out, Federer!
Seriously, a nice result for DY after a difficult year.
Rumor has it he is working with a new coach? That's the kind of change he is going to make if he is going to turn this thing around. If you look at his career, he has wins over players in the top 5 (Murray), 10 (Monfils), 20 (Warwinka, Melzer (ret.)), and 30 (Chela, Lopez). He can play at that level. The frustrating thing is that once he got there, he never figured out how to stay.
