Perhaps there was no credit for post-RG play because you lost to Tsonga from 2 sets up; Djokovic from 2 sets up; Tsonga at a Masters series and I can't even remember who Fed lost to in Cincy so I find it hard to believe he was doing "extremely well". Have to hand it to him though - the guy has self belief and confidence and it does him good.
That's precisely his point. People don't give a crap, because he lost in the semis against Nadal. Who cares if he won 6 out of 8 tourneys. It's unfair, he's doing what's he doing, at the age of 30, that's really almost unprecedented. I already have him as the second best 30+ player of all-time behind Agassi, and if he wins another Slam, i'll have to rank him at nr. 1, because even though Agassi won what, 5 slams past 30, i don't think he ever played on that level. We should be really, really impressed with Roger. That's some scary consistency, and level of play from a 30 and a half year old tennis player.
