He always says that. He's always playing for his fans. And probably it's somewhat true but definitely not the whole truth.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

I have the same scepticism when I hear Novak talking about his love of playing for his country. The same country he nearly turned his back on in 2006 to play for GB.

Yea, I think there's something going on there too. Tennis is such an individual game though especially for the high ranked players. A lot at stake especially for Nole now as Nadal has come back and he’s come back in a massive way, so obviously Nole will have to take things to another level and there’s our Andy coming into full force, especially this year. I wouldn’t rule out my suspect there as far as his latest injury goes and that had occured to me just last night. Will have to just wait and see.

How about Nadal's knee injury? Lots of speculations around that too.

Let alone that he lives in Monte-Carlo. Don't patriots pay taxes in their own country?

Monaco wins his first match (outside Davis Cup) of 2013! Beats Tim Smyczek 7-6, 6-1 in Houston.

Ricardas Berankis beats Tommy Haas 6-3, 6-3 in Houston. Also in QFs is young American Rhyne Williams (won his first Challenger this year) and Jack Sock took Isner all the way to a final set tie-break. Those two Americans will break the top 100 this year, of that I have no doubt. Meanwhile Verdasco lost 6-3, 6-2 to 35yo Ramirez Hidalgo!

Houston QFs:

Almagro/Lorenzi
Williams/Ramirez Hidalgo
Monaco/Ginepri
Isner/Berankis

Casablanca QFs:

Wawrinka/Garcia-Lopez (Wawrinka won 6-1, 6-2)
Paire/Robredo (Robredo won 7-6, 2-6, 6-0)
Klizan/Haase
Anderson/Zemlja

Jiri Vesely has reached his first Challenger SF - and with it breaks the top 200, becoming the first teenager since Tomic to do so.

Mannarino and Bogomolov making strides back to the top 100. Both former top 50 players, meet each other in the SFs in Guadalajara. Vasek Pospisil also looking to return to the top 100, faces Rajeev Ram in the other SF.

Utter choke by Paire. Could have won it after having a break point in the first game of the 3rd set, but after that was saved, he totally collapsed.

again like I said mental strength is key, this is what separates the top players from some of the top 100

I thought he was too but isn't this just typical of him.. He certainly used to do this kind of thing before went on the winning run.  Perhaps he has started agaion because he not doing as well as he was.

Klizan Klizan'd; lost 2-6, 6-4, 6-2.

Anderson/Robredo final.

Almagro ended Williams run in Houston in comprehensive style (2&1). Isner/Monaco currently contesting other SF.

Jiri Vesely into Mersin final. Second teenager this year (after Kyrgios, who is two years his junior) to make a CH final.

Some crazy results in Monte Carlo qualies.

(4) Brands d. Andreev 6-0 6-0
Bachinger d. (11) Kubot 6-1 6-1
