anyway you are back just in time. australian open is 10 days away.
Yes, but sadly I saw that Clay Warrior is out of the tournament.
But remember we both saw it coming... Remember that video I posted a few weeks back showing him rubbing his knees in some kind of pain after practice and sitting on his hard court in Mallorca. I'm now a believer in what you have said about him not learning.
We said it. He should have come back practicing on clay. That's where he is now, on the Manacor clay courts (photo below from New Year's eve).
But their earlier strategy seems to have cost him one slam appearance. Hopefully he can be ready for South America clay and and then the European clay season. But who knows when he'll come back?
he had no ground game accordance with his standards if he was to do well. why? because the blundering fool could not help himself. he had to jump on hard courts as soon as he could.
you posted a video of him struggling with his rhythm and his knee.
i could outhit him on the court with the way he was hitting. so yes another blunder.
he got sick and suddenly realized he had no time to obtain his rhythm off the ground. clay would have solved that problem.
all it takes is 2-3 days of adjustment from clay to hard courts.
clay to grass is the hardest adjustment and he used to do that in a single afternoon.
anyway i am still here. i am going for a bike ride in about 30 minutes.
