Re: On the war path at TMS Madrid
Here's my thought, after having a day to think about the match. I didn't see the match, but the score would indicate that physically he can keep up with the big servers, but he's not there just yet mentally. In Vienna last week, he at least had two matches to prepare for Nalbandian and Stepanek, but this week he didn't have that luxury to work his way in. The final in Vienna also indicates the same thing; he played great in his matches leading up to the final, but he wasn't there mentally.
It's just a waiting game now, for when he'll get that one big win again to boost his confidence and get his mind and body working in sync once more. Getting a smaller title might help to build him up to that big win as well. It'd probably take a win over Roger or Nadal for JC to get back on track.
What would Anderson say?
