He won Nottingham, didn't even fight in Wimbledon, won Gstaad, was pathetic in Stuttgart, runner-up in Toronto, and right now he's losing to Robredo. I still think he can win, but won't be surprised if he loses. I don't know if he's okay with it, thinking he already did well enough the week before so he relaxes too much and goes to lalaland when he shouldn't, but it's definitely something to work on. I know he's facing a worthy opponent (and has faced in tournaments where he's done poorly), but it's definitely a possible match for him to win and then advance a few more rounds.
