You're right - Nico does need a break - I just wish it wasn't a tournament where I can see him.
But he didn't have fun in Washington last year - I saw his match. He was really having problems trying to adjust from the clay one week and then just having 1-2 days to practice before playing a match on hardcourt - he was really really frustrated. He looked up at the Chileans I was sitting next to and said - one shot, two shots, and the point is over. This is so much fun. Obviously he was being really sarcastic.
I felt bad for him.
