The problem for Jo this year is that he lacks a big win/ big result, unlike last year when he got 10 Top-10 wins
. Another bad thing is that he's having easy draws until QF in every events and sometimes he can't take advantage ( eg. Nishikori at A.O & Nalbandian in Indian Wells). Even with our view that he's playing bad ( which he certainly is) he is #6 in the rankings, with a 900+ lead over Berdych, and #11 in the RACE, only 140 pts. away from Top-8.
A brief resume about his season so far:
QF: Dubai, Miami
R4: Australian Open, Indian Wells
Best win coming over #14 Monfils in Doha, 0-3 vs Top-10's, 18-5 W/L ratio.
Overall solid results, but considering his great play at indoor season in 2011 we expected more.
