Assuming he can stay healthy, it should. Winning the 2 challengers back to back was really what got James going, I think. It's also what Andre did. Mardy's also GOT to make sure he is REALLY 100% before he goes out there. If he can bag a challenger title (or two or three or four
) and get himself into the top 100 by year-end so that he can get into the AO directly, that will be really big, so that he can start there fresh. And he ought to get WCs into a lot of tourneys in the US so that he can work his way up. Let's just hope....
I'd also somehow like for Mardy to demonstrate that he really wants it. He needs to get into better shape and work harder. It's disappointing to hear the commentators question his work ethic whenever he does happen to make it onto tv or get a little attention. Show us you want it, Mardy.
