IMO he was playing better at Lyon and Paris in the fall, before he got hurt. At the beginning of this season he even mentioned that he felt like after the USO last year he picked it up and was being more aggressive and he was. He didn't even drop serve at Lyon, didn't do anything unnecessary to extend matches like he's been doing, etc.

We can only hope.
