I think JCF has already given up on this year. That's his 10th first round loss of the year.
It's really been a shocking season for him. He hasn't won a single indoor match.
I haven't seen any of his last few matches (bloody Sky Sports ended their coverage after the Murray match
) so I don't know what is wrong with his game. But I think he should consider whether his relationship with Perlas is working. It's time for him to sit down and think about what he's doing wrong.
