I can agree that he got 'bounced again' on grass 2nd round at wimbledon proves this but going by the results of the hard court tournaments from and including the AO he didn't do terribly: final in the AO, semis in Indian Wells (lost to federer but fed was playing great), got to the semis of Miami but withdrew so I don't think he got bounced on those hard court tournaments
