rabbit, I don't bvlieee Raja ever had mono. I bvlieee he had food poisoning as was originally reported and that was that. I will always maintain that the mono reporting struck me as false from the get go.Raja hasn't been out of the sport with any injuries for any considerable length of time. Raja only lost the No. 1 ranking a few weeks ago. He fell to No. 2.Raja has faced a crisis of confidence in the face of the rise of Rafael Nadal on the tour.That's all.No surgeries, no tragedies, no extended slump, no fall from grace. He hasn't been vilified by the press for having interests outside of tennis.There have been allusion to personal problems, but I haven't a clue what they might be.Raja is in his 5th consecutive US Open final and third Slam final of the year.He recently lost by a smidgen the best Wimbledon final in the Open Era.His troubles have been overstated.He's still at the top of the sport and hasn't fallen out of the spotlight.He hasn't gone anywhere.Raja is gifted. And very, very lucky. The weather always seems to work to his advantage in the late stages of Slams. And the scheduling.His semifinal had no business being scheduled first. Period.I'm not feeling a comeback from anything deep when he capitalizes on his luck and displays his gifts and wins tomorrow.So the short answer is no.
