Leo is really a points whore (Vulture it's just a dumb word "created" by Mug Lenders). Disgusting to see a player with his ability playing cheap challengers at this time of the season.
He had to defend a lot of points from this time last season and his top 100 place wasn't fully secure so it was wise for him to play this swing. He isn't winning many matches on indoor hard.
imo it was the right thing to do, play this swing, mainly because of his recent level of play. His confidence doesn't seem too high atm and his overall game nowhere near were it used to be... very inconsistent, even worse returning than usual and just not clicking therefore struggling and losing against player he should routine. He's pretty hard with himself when things are not going his way so motivation and confidence are very important, staying healthy too let's not forget this season hasn't been injury free at all.
