Don't get me wrong, I don't want him to overplay.

But he was in far from great form when he took that break in 2016. So it's different. He's been so much fun to watch in Feb-Mar, that I don't want it to end.
Maybe taking long breaks and losing rhythm is not the way to go anymore.

It's not like he is going to give it his all on clay. He'll use it to polish his ground game ahead of Wimb. He'll only play Halle instead of both Halle and Stuttgart now.

Congrats Fed. Certainly didn't expect a win here in Miami after disappointing loss to Thiem. May be first time in his career he has played better in Miami than IW. His return must be appreciated as well. 6-0 6-4 against Kandyman, 6-1 6-4 against Isner and many 6-2/6-3 sets in this tournament as well.

His first big title since AO 2018, the streak of losing Masters final is over now. This success should serve as confidence booster for him. And after showing the world he is not done yet, the goal really should be Wimbledon now.
The goal is always Wimbledon, I believe.

Honestly, Agassi would have won Miami 2005 and Montreal 2005 had the Next Gen been his opponents instead of what he actually got.
