I agree that the big problem is that Bernard himself doesn't care really. He keeps talking about working harder and playing more consistently, yet his actions and level of play show otherwise.
I also agree this is why Bernard keeps dad around because he knows he wouldn't handle the demands of a professional coach. I think one of the articles from the off-season had a quote from Pat Cash saying because of his reputation, Bernard would find it hard to get a top coach anyway.
I doubt anything will change soon considering these same criticisms have been around for his entire career basically. That's what I meant earlier by saying it's frustrating to see this continue from him/his team. It's like he's deliberately wasting his career.
He's going to lose QF points from pulling out of Munich, but I guess it would be unlikely he would have defended those anyway with the way he's playing now.
