I think most of the problem comes from his attitude and weak mentality. He doesn't have confidence in himself when he plays against quality players. He even loses to players like Tursunov and Andreev! (Not that they are bad players but for top 10 player he should have no problem beating them) Also he is too stubborn and is not willing to fix parts of his game like not staying behind the baseline and not hitting moonball fhs. His coach and his parents have coddled him all his life and it's ruining him. He needs tough love.
Precisely. I got the impression his parents never beat or pummeled him when he was a kid.
