Many other players (Ljubicic, for example) are becoming much more consistent in their results-and make no mistake about it...if David is not really, willing, or able to put in the 100% commitment the game demands of him, he will continue to lose matches he should win and forfeit opportunities to build upon his success.
And because he knows it, that can also be a problem for him right now. David knows what everyone is expecting from him, and I'm sure that is stressfull.
But then again he has to be able to deal with the presure, otherwise what kind of athelete is he?
But yeah, I agree with what you said. David has to open his eyes, while it's time.
