Let's see what happens here. It would be great if he could win it, but somehow I find it very hard. If he can't make it in IW, I hope he can make it soon. :D

Would love to see it happen at IW as it might stop the pundits who claim David only won in Shanghai because Federer was overcoming an injury. Plus, it would keep alive the streak of the winner of the Masters Cup also winning in IW. I think if David could win, it would help his confidence for the year,

Indeed. I hope it does happen. David seems to be finding his form, and here's hoping that the run of good form continues.

For sure. This week is as good as any other week. Go Nalby! :D

I think he has good chances here specially because Federer played very badly yesterday against Rochus :)

Safin, Fed, Nadal.
He is in far greater form than the three.

With a little luck, he could get a hold of the shield without dropping a set.

But it will happen. HE has to believe that. It's frustating how David can't be motivated at times.....it really upsets me. Okay, sorry for this guys. Maybe it's me, maybe I put my target to high, and expect others to do the same.

Lack of motivation, to me, is inexcusable. This is what he's chosen to do for a living, and if he doesn't want to do it anymore, then he can walk away.

Yeah, sometimes it looks like he is wondering. Thinking if that's what he really wants. I dunno, maybe we're overacting here. But it certainly looks like.

I'm going by my first instinct...and I'm not backing down from it.

I don't even know what my instinct is anymore, not when it comes to David at least. Well, I want to believe in him and in his game that's all.

I believe in him, honestly. It's just that what he is capable of doing and what he's currently doing is as far away from each other as the east is to the west.

I think this match has damaged his motivation to win Miami.
If he decides to cooperate in the post match interview, there might be answers.

Okay, remind me again what is he capable to do?

No, I'm kiding. Yeah, you're very right. He needs to get his shit together, but then again, how many times have we said this same old thing in this place?

Did he give one? I don't think this result would damage his motivation (personally, the AO semi is what may have done it); instead, I think it may not have done anything significant. What I think he must do is become a little more concerned about his results. The monosyllabic interviews he usually gives is not indicative of how he feels about the result or his level of play.

I agree 100%.
But I definitely feel Nalbo is motivated, its just people express themselves in different ways. I just feel sometimes in the smaller tourneys if he's down say 6-2 4-1 he wouldn't fight too hard. That's wrong but its Nalbo. :rolleyes: But if that was a slam he would be going all guns out just like against Nieminen at the Aussie Open.
We all know he's more motivated by the GS and the DC.

But the problem is that he should be motivated in every tournament he's in. The season is not only about GS and Davis Cup. David should know better.

I just find he gives up to fast. And for instance during a game, while he looses a few points...he somehow starts getting angry and looses his motivation. And then everything turns out to be a disaster! Cause the game only gets worse and sometimes he starts loosing points he usually wouldn't loose...but I think that's just typical David. Maybe he has to work on that!!!

Yes...he must work on that. If he's to cement his credibility and his place as a top three player, he must do this NOW!!

I agree but that's him, and there's nothing us fans can do.
I don't know why but I just think THAT loss at the Aussie Open is going to affect him for some time. Letting the match slip like that is a bitter pill to swallow and very difficult to forget. I don't care how many times he says he's over it, until he can pull that win in a Semi its always going to play in the back of his mind.

Well, at least let us useless fans have an opinion. :lol: And today I'm still very frustrated with him.

We all know he is frustrating to follow. That's probably why we keep persisting with him. Personally I thought he looked over weight in IW. I certainly didn't think he played like a top 3 player. He really should be punishing these guys ranked alot lower than he is. Only time will really tell how good he wants to be by the number of tournament wins he can add to his profile. Hopefully 2 more than last year. David stand up to your ranking and play like your unbeatable.

I hope he wins first master ASAP so we can then get of his back and start giving positive energy to him.

This is Dave's final chance to re-capture his TMC game.
Should he fail to win Miami. I don't see him having success till Madrid/Paris.

Yeah, that's the best thing to do, since he's Mr. Unpredictable (or is that Mr. Unpre-dick-table? Oops, sorry for the double entendres, but I couldn't resist).
