rue, I totally agree. I've had friends going through tough times mentally, and it's hard to see you have a problem. It's tough to admit you need help. That's human nature, we want to fix things on our own. But, I was really optimistic about his new coaching team. I thought they would be able to help him mentally - Todd was always a great fighter, he had a good 5-set match record and he always plugged along til the end of a match, you could never count him out. I'm sure Todd can share some of that with Mardy. I hope Mardy trusts him, and if he says it's time to bring someone in from the outside to help, that he will go along with it.
It's making me so sad to see this happen to him. Because I KNOW he's better than this. In terms of raw talent, I think he's one of the top 10-15 in the world, and it makes me want to cry that he can't win a damn match
