It's been obvious this year that he probably won't be a big threat out of clay and also isn't putting much effort in 250 events. Optimistically he could win around 5 clay Masters and a RG title in the next 5 years before his body burns out at around 30,then winning some smaller titles to finish at around 20-25 titles.
Miami 2015, Acapulca 2016 (playing Dimitrov, Querrey and Tomic), USO 2016 (retired after injury in R16), Indian Wells 2017.
Metz 2016, first round match against A. Zverev at Rotterdam 2017
His performane was always bad at Canada/Cincinnati and ever will be. But at the USO he had always good results. 2014 and 2015 his USO results were better than his FO results, he made more ATP points on hard courts than on clay courts ...
I would not underestimate him on hard courts.
