I think this is rather about his lack of concentration during the matches resulted from mental exhaustion after Paris than any other reasons. TB demands much more concentration and focus of players but it seemed that he just didn't have much enough in his tank for the whole week.
Since the second set of the Rome final its been
5 wins (Hartfied, Botanna, Gasquet, 2 Rochus)- 8 loses (3 Naldal, Massu, Gasquet, Rochus, Haas, Berdich).
Yeah i agree he has been struggling on tiebreaks lately, as well as trying to close out matches.
