I tend to think this whole little Spring hard court season is a mistake.. he should have stayed and practiced on clay till European clay court season. To me he has much better shot over in Europe. We all know he won't win a match in Miami because he never does well there.
I could not agree more. Hopefully Markus reads this forum.
Of course it is disappointing because we know how much more he can shine, but remember that not so long ago we were struggling with a lot more important matters : whether or not he would be allowed to keep playing.
True, but still such a close defeat against this opponent needs some time to digest.
im sad, i was expecting a lot from him in this tournament, i thought i will see changes in him with the new coach and all the practice
I think it is too early for that. I have it said elsewhere and I repeat, I would have been suspicious if the collaboration with Markus would have shown immediate results. That would somehow been more of the same: up and down, up and down. If he is really going to change things, it will take longer, but it will be also more sustainable.

When did you start folowing him? Today?
Richard had to suffer much more than a 1st round defeat in a masters event throughout his carreer and he is still there.
