I'm NOT saying that's the case with any particular tennis player but,in sports terms, the premise isn't totally unfounded
Yah, I agree there is some basis to the concept in general.

For a tennis player, I think a good example would be the next year after a player has their first top 20/top 30 season. I've seen players fall off quite a bit after such a year. Of course, players adapting to their game isn't their only problem a lot of times, they also face a lot of pressure to backup their results from the previous season.

Captain Matthew Gideon: That would explain it.
