  2. Can't argue with that. At least he's not using the Wilson ROK anymore. That thing "sux."

    I think I saw him beat Jaden-Gil Agassi in a hitting session once.

    ...but that's only because Jaden Gil had a bad case of diaper rash that day.

    But seriously, lighten up on the guy. Not everyone can be Federer. The guy will get a new coach, learn how to mix it up against different players and someday be in the top 50. Well, hopefully. THough it's been more than 6 months since I have watched him play, seems to me (back then) he was double faulting a ridiculous number of times. But keep this in mind, the guy has still won 4 more tournaments than Anna Kournakova.

    But there's no comparison between those two when you see them in their Speedos.

    He's another player that's really streaky, but if you listen to PMac you'd think he was in the top 5.

    he's a regular serv and volleyr.
    I think playe 2day r good in passing shots(also with lot of pace)
    so player like dent could just block the volley but had a hard time controlling it anymore.

    Dent needs to hit the gym and lose some weight if he wants to start winning matches again.

    That's true. Last year, when he started getting good results, it was because of his fitness - he won some tournaments, had a good USOpen run. Then he broke up with his fitness trainer, and went downhill since then. Too bad, really - if he had the commitment, he could be top 20. But he doesn't, and so ends up being streaky and probably will be outside of the top 40 by the end of the year.

    I think that if Dent was in good physical condition, he'd be in the top 5. As for his year-end ranking, he's already in the fifties, so ending in the 40s would better that than for which he is on track.

    I think he'll have to do a little more than lose a bit of weight to be in the top 5. He's a good player, but he needs some work. To be honest, I don't think I've seen him play a match in something like 6 months.

    Is he the same age as Roddick?
