yeah, got mixed up
i read it back and thought, hang on, that's not right, wasn't it zeballos & nadal...
anyway, what's your take on things?
I think he's been carrying a few injuries, lost all confidence and given that he has pretty much no game he needs to be physically and mentally perfect to compete at this level.
unless he gets some kind draws on clay, things will get worse before they get better.
bear in mind though that he's been grossly over-ranked. 25-40 is more like his true level and that's being quite kind so part of the story is that he is simply returning to that.
