That's the same thing I thought. To me, he appears to kinda rush things. He's so eager to do everything fast, he's not taking his time to construct points the way that he should. He's got talent, but he's gotta seriously slow down a bit and start constructing his points better, play with some controlled aggression. There's no need to over-hit the ball the way he does. He would have better results, if he learned to take his time and stop rushing through everything.
There are times, rare moments, when the greatest of champions fall. Maybe because of a bad day or maybe there's pain within. One thing you can be sure of, is that all the great champions will bounce back again. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But one day, they'll be back again. And they'll be better than ever. Why??? Because that's what great champions do. They survive.
