I have to admit, 4-5 years ago I thought this guy was soft and a whiner. His attitude against Massu in the Olympic finals really made me think he wouldn't stay at the top for long. Then he missed substantial time and fell down around 300 in the world. I have to hand it to him -- fighting all the way back to the top 20 is a terrific effort. I've seen him play 6-7 times over the past few years, and he fights like hell every match. He made rafa really work at the us open last year, and now he is even pushing people like andreev on clay. he worked really hard to improve his forehand and make it more than solid -- it's now a weapon. plus, he threatened to beat PHM's @ss during a match... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpSt5W49Oho if I were p-mac, I would seriously consider subbing him for blake next round of Davis Cup.
