I kinda thought he would be raring to go with all the training he's been doing in Miami lately. There was evidently no sign of it in Abu Dhabi so I will be watching how he gets on in Brisbane rather nervously now. I take your point about his pre-Wimby and pre-USO slumps. Still, I'd far rather he went into the AO with some wins behind him. He usually starts off the season well. I hope this year isn't going to be an exception!
I don't suppose i'm ever going to be able to relax and feel confident about his form am I? I really do envy Fed and Djoko fans in this regard!
