Yes - after Kasparov's demolition of Anand in their World Championship match, Black has been struggling in this line.  Personally, I think Black has some early deviations which avoid the Ng5 piece sac, and which might be worth looking at from his point of view.  Subject to one or more of these working out for him, the Open remains an excellent way to play for a win with Black imho.
  

If sometimes we fly too close to the sun, at least this shows we are spreading our wings.

It seems to me that the open ruy is never played at the high levels anymore. Maybe its because of the 9. Nbd2 line?
