Considering his first match of the year, he doesn't seem all that focused yet.

I can imagine from now on only Slams and Masters will be the real motivation factors.

Murray will win this quite easily imo. Raonic might trouble him a little in the final though.

Yep, as was every slam prior to the US Open 2012.

Murray will do what he does, crash out after a match or two. The last two slam finals he's been in he kamikaze'd out of the warm up tourneys.

I can only assume you didn't watch it. And lucky you because you couldn't pay me to watch that awful shit again. The only reason Matosevic didn't win is because Marinko couldn't even hit basic ground strokes without making an error. Disgusting stuff. I was embarrassed for the both of them after it was over. That should have been my realization that Milos had nothing left to give for the rest of the 2012, but I still held out hope he could pick up some points.

and Muller was playing pretty well when they met, close match too, so I don't think those matches were that poor.
Another error fest from Milos. Unlike Matosevic, Muller actually played fine but Milos had nothing working (including his serve). It stayed close because it was a Milos/Muller all-serve match, but it was truly poor on Milos' part.

If those two were average days for Milos, he wouldn't have gotten to #13 in the world in 2012.
