So, qualified optimism for Cincy but concerns remain. Feeling under pressure and not at top form he may have been but there's no denying Nole's game was made to appear one-dimensional and predictable at times by Andy. This is potentially significant and will not go unnoticed elsewhere.
If he can keep this week's form up Andy should be no 4 pretty soon and deservedly so - there's no one else in the top 10 with a better claim right now to my mind.
Well, I am fresh and new again, ready for endless optimism (concern remains, I agree with you). As for Andy - I think he can defeat Nadal, I though it might happen last night coz he is mentally stronger and stronger. I like the guy very much.
