Confidence certainly plays a part; it's one of the downsides of getting constantly injured, it affects a player's confidence/doesn't allow him to build momentum. As of right now, he's dealing with on-going left wrist pain, which is why he's abusing the BH slice - might turn out to be a blessing in disguise, his BH slice has become really good. Ultimately, it all comes down to his health; unless he manages to stay fit for prolonged periods, it will be very hard to gather the confidence and momentum to really push for another big title. His game is definitely more sophisticated than a lot of people give him credit for: I'm pretty sure the people who think he just bashes every ball for a winner don't really watch him play. In the past year, due to physical impedements, he has even reached QF/SF in big events by slicing most BHs and even using drop shots to good effect. But of course that in order to challenge the top players in the game, all incredible movers, he needs much more than that - he needs to pull the trigger much more often, needs to be on top of his game fitness and confidence wise basically.

As for this tournament, I think we'll finally have Murray vs JMDP. Chardy ruined that the last two times and he lost to Phau today - that's a definitely a sign that it's destiny I expect JMDP to beat Phau and Almagro/Haas definitely (Haas is a great matchup, Almagro always chokes vs top players). Murray should take care of Lu easily and although Nishikori could challenge him, I'd expect Murray to win.

couldnt watch the match (only live scores) but it seems chockerenko come up to scene, started both sets breaking (2-0; 3-0) and then easily broken by delpo.

Potro should reach QF now, and then probably loses to Mandy, his current level is really low.

It's always a pleasure to see Davydenko roasted

He does need to find a better balance though, I'd agree there - one of the main differences from his current self to his 2009 self is that he rarely ever goes down the line in rallies these days, he used to turn tons of rallies around with a powerful down the line.
Basically this.

I think people expect Del Po to be agressive like Tsonga because he's got power. He's not though. Del Po plays high % tennis, but uses it in a more offensive way than defensive players if you follow me. I wouldn't say he's aggresive, and i wouldn't say he's defensive either. He tries to uses his power to force a ball he can attack and hit a winner from. He's not pushing, and he's not looking for winners with almost every shot, but he's trying to put his opponent on the defensive. Hence why Ferrer is a bad matchup for him because that power is redirected , and those balls he can attack don't come.

I agree that he should look DTL more often. He only seems to do that when he's confident and on his game.
