I understand your point but as far as I know, David has the same coach. So why is he not as fit as the end of last year ?
Because he has come down off his high
Sorry to be blunt and harsh but David had stars in his eyes last year and going into this year, then just because he got that back injury that threw him off in australia he used that as his excuse to stop working hard anymore "oh woe is me no matter how often i up my training, every time i get serious and work hard i am beset with injuries", end of last year the work with Jaite was finally paying of and then nalby was really starting to knuckle down and work hard, but after that one set back he softened up again, figuratively and literally.
Hes back to David 06, good form, lowered expectations. I think for him this year all he needs is the davis cup to be happy, fair enough thats good for him, but he could be so much more, I just have to accept that its his life whatever makes him happy makes is great for him, I have to stop investing so much into guys like him Rafa, Nole (and even the scud for f@#$s sake) because what they do with their life is up to them and i get too emotional over these things lol
I guess im a sucker for wasted talent though, I was still holding on to this blind faith that Scud could still make one run at Wimbledon after he picked up darren cahil and gil reyes and he said that he believed he was destined to win the title once.... Geeze i really am a sucker.
Still Am a big david fan and I dont believe that anyone playing their best against him on any surface, currently, can take him down without going through hell. His best tennis (and if he were fit like last year) would beat federer on grass, Possibly rafa on clay, and anyone on a hard court or indoor with the exception of safin at his very best when he could move too. And I think out of all players hes the ONE player along with Safin who can carry the davis cup team even after having a shit season in singles
