Cinci is where he should GOAT with a win and find his real form for the USO.
I hope people now realize that playing Montreal proved a silly decision on the long run.
It just stressed him out. He flunked Cinci where he'd have prepared better and wore out in the slam.
He has to
be very picky about what to play and what to avoid. Irrespective of what his fanboys think. This is health.
Suggested 2018 Schedule:
AO, Wimbly, USO
Cinci, Halle, Shanghai, IW
TO CONSPICUOUSLY AVOID:
Entire Clay Season
Miami (no need to exacerbate yourself - I would have even suggested him to avoid slow IW but at least he has a gap before and after)
Stuttgart - I would he rather avoid it, but its grass and playing in a couple of rounds only to lose to the Great Claas again would be sufficient to get his feet ready for Halle and Wimbly.
If he can stick to this sched, he'd at least be physically fit to contend to the contests I've scheduled "To Play" at 36, and hopefully end with 4-6 titles which should be good. Of course, I am not counting the day's form (and that is important) but the base level of physical condition for competition is even more significant than form on the long run.
No greed. No overconfidence. No overestimation of capacity. No catering to fanboyism. No compromise on health.
Longevity. And we gonna see whats going on.
