This guy is finally proving himself. He won the Tennis channel ope for his first title. Yes, this isn't that prestigious of a title, but a good one to win as your first. And now he reached the QF of Monte Carlo only to lose to the world #3, Novak Djokovic.

I think this guy will soon break into the top 20.

Anyone know if the current rankings have included Monte Carlo points?

He beat Gasquet too....but honestly I don't think he's ready for opponents in the top 20 YET..

Gasquet is top20.

The dude is solid. I can't quite figure out what he does so well, but he is obviously doing something. Obviously the serve is good with his height. The forehand is compact and powerful. He's a pretty smart player too. Good IQ.

To do what he did in Monte Carlo is a big deal, especially considering the top Americans don't even bother to show up.

To say you can't figure out what he does so well is a complement to men's tennis. So many players do so much well that it takes something special to take them to the top.

Sometimes he gets into that pouty mood of his. I don't like that.

he's streaky, sometimes he plays really well and sometimes he plays terrible. It just matters on the day... For him to be in the top 20 and even in the top 10 he needs to play really well all the time or at least play ok, he can't play good one day and horrible the next.

Gasquet is top20.

True but...as many know..Gasquet is in a slump and plays like he doesn't deserve to be in top 20..

It was good to see him compete in Monte Carlo and do so well. He moved up 11 points in the rankings to #39, tied with Fish. Keep going, Sam!

Actually he is still in top 10. But only 28th in the race so far this year.

Querrey has jumped 11 spots to #39 in the rankings. To bad he's taking the rest of the season off before RG. He's like one good result away from being a seeded player at the slams.

So, he won't be playing Rome and Hamburg? :confused:

he is my favorite player without question. The only way he can get to the top twenty is to have consistent clay and grass results. He has a fairly good record agaisnt the top twenty, but I believe that they are all on hard courts (disregarding Monte Carlo). He also beat Moya which is good news for Americans on clay.
