    This guy came from almost nowhere and since 2012 he's playing some insane tennis.
    I mean watching him play is quite an experience. Plays lefty, very agressive with a great all around game and massive FH.
    He's ranked 45 now.
    I wouldnt want him in my side of the draw if I were playin AO.
    What do u guys think?

    Just another Robin Haase. Won't ever be ranked in the top 30.

    Will bump when he ranked 30....Robin Haase has some titles....while you and everyone on this board have no ATP titles.

    Go ahead, it isn't happening.

    By the way, my tennis career is irrelevant, you can still be a critic without playing the sport at the same level as them. Just like Simon Cowell.

    Simon Cowell is a major player in the industry, not some "critic" on a keyboard.

    This guy made a deep run at the US Open beating Tsonga along the way. Now he's in the St. Petersburg final and he just beat Youzhny. He's young and has a big lefty game. I'm impressed.

    Sampras has posted here, so some of us have slam titles.

    I think he will be top 35 by the end of the year. He has the potential to be a top 20 player, nothing more. But i only see him making the top 25 in his career.

    Having your username as Sampras doesn't mean any proof that Sampras posted here.

    Suresh did give proof but it not like he came out and stated he was Sampras..

    He could have been a fanboy acting like Sampras

    Do you actually read what you write, or does this crap just spill out of you?

    He's ranked #28 at this moment in time

    http://live-tennis.eu/

    Officially he's #33

    He should officially be in the top 30 a week from tomorrow (Monday)

    Too late, he's #28 as of today

    Among the upstarts, I like Goffin and Klizan's game. Hope both move up the rankings

    Robin Haase had a shot to be in the top 10 if he hadn't had all of his injuries.
