While watching the open this past week, both Jim Courier and Mary Carillo have acknowledged the adverse effects of Feds mono on his performance and preparation. Courier stated that Fed would never use his mono as an excuse,but he is clearly still affected by his mono and it has definitely hurt his performance. Carillo said that Feds mono totally threw off Feds normal workout schedule of taking extended time off to train in December, February, and July. She when on to say that the mono in Dec/2007 prevented him from training that month and in February, and the Olympics prevented him from training in July. There is nothing wrong with Feds game once he gets over the mono and can train like he normally did. What is amazing is even with his mono and altered training schedule he has performed so well in majors considering the circumstances!
