Movement, also, just having the luxury to have more time to set up shots, minimize errors, etc. etc. I think have cost him at important points during matches in the past.
I also think just more variety. He can get into matches with people who can block back his serve and then attack his backhand and this gives him trouble. I loved the 98mph off-pacer with the serve-volley on MP against Koubek last week... he has some opponents like Agassi, Roger, Nalbandian, Henman, etc., who've got him figured out so he's gotta keep developing and adding variety so that he can throw these guys off.
I love how you are like, if I had to pick one thing, then you say like three things. Haha
There is alot he needs to improve on but, minor stuff, I think, he is no Melzer out there. haha
Mixing it up is a very good idea, movement is a must, and ROS well only if he wants to break Rogi's(or any other big server's) serve...
