So, he did nothing much. Precisely my point. I don't remember him struggling to string 4-5 shots in a row like that. He struggled against all top 30 players who played decent in 2015-2016. Think Djokovic 2017-early 2018.
He was born in December 1989. That's more like early 90s than mid 80s. Nishikori, Raonic and Dimitrov are the Lost Boys of tennis in recent years. They had some talent between them but not one of them could win a Slam.
But he won't. He is too stubborn to listen to his body. If he can only play the slams going forward, I don't see him hanging around too long. If his injuries prevent him from playing at least half of MS 1000s, I see him announcing his retirement. He still wants to compete so much.
I hope he...
