He still needs work with his foot work and his backhand, but he has come a long way, even from this time last year. He still goes through stretches where it seems impossible that he could be an 8th seed, but now he often goes through stretches where he looks like he could give anyone trouble. Loving how he is going to the net more. And he is thinking and feeling his way through matches nicely. It's not just about hoping to somehow make it through any rally that goes beyond 5 strokes. He can take control of rallies now beyond the effects of his serve.
