I disagree. Masters and WTF are to best of 3 what slams are to best of 5. What matters is to win titles and accumulate confidence. What matters is to combine success with consistency. This year, success has worked (Djoko has won all 3 finals he's played) but consistency has gone out the window big time. And this can have far reaching implications in terms of near future confidence. If you don't see that, then you're in denial.
