He doesn't want to end up as a one slam wonder, so he knows focusing on doubles will be his only chance to grab more slams... :shrug: :o

Sometimes I really think he needs to get his priorities in order, playing doubles with Marko and recording rap songs with Karlovic arent gonna get him back to where he was.

Smart move. Have some fun and relax. Palying a MM on clay before the US Open won't help.

Also organizers built one hard court for players to train on...same surface as in USO. So, his yacht was there with his gf on...his brother to play doubles with and court to start to do some hc practice. And he likes the place :shrug: .

Well, I think he should of played an extra tournament, even if it is Umag for singles to get his confidence back by winning, because we all know how much of that he has been doing especially this year :rolleyes: I don't know, it doesn't seem like he has matured correctly after winning the Australian Open. He kind of did a Safin..
