not to mention this is a total waste of a WC that could go to an American who has a CHANCE to win a match (i.e. Paul Goldstein).
Yes, I don't think it does any good to lose four matches in a row straight sets. You need to go and work on your game between each loss, fix the problems, and come back and try again. I don't believe this is the right route.
Still, let's hope for a positive. Maybe he'll draw a clay courter or something. Just want him to get that first win out of the way so we can stop listening to all the chatter about it. The reporters will really start hitting him soon if he keeps losing badly in straights. And regardless of what he says, that kind of stuff gets in your mind and creates more pressure.
