Tim will not be seeded in a Masters Tournament, and, as his physical weakness...i.e. his dodgy back...let him down disastrously yesterday, I think he'll not have any success this year.
It'll be touch and go if he gets seeded at the Aus open.
I've read a few accounts of yesterday's match against Stepanek. They make it sound as if it was touch and go!!
Excuse me, I watched the whole match. After a great second set, ?Teem just couldn't find the extra "oomph" to make up from his rapidly deteriorating physical state.
I've loved watching Teem. It seems to me that we are going to have to accept he is past his best.
