he just doesnt have the confidence... mark's game is based on aggression and confidence. He goes for winners, and tries to dictate play. But he's lost all confidence in himself and has become his own worst enemy. He appears to be getting fitter, but its gotta click soon or it never will.
Good thing though is his serve was getting stronger throughout the event. He served 16 aces against rochus which is the most i think in a very long time, and in doubles he was solid on serve so thats a positive.. i guess time will tell.
