    I think this guy is the next Coria - How far do you all think he can go at the FO this year? He's had some nice results this spring - I'm bullish on his future overall - anyone else?

    PS - He takes Tsonga in 4

    Monaco seems to be gaining in momentum. His last couple of months have been fantastic. He's getting big match experience and I think he's ready for a big scalp on a big stage. I hope so. I like him.

    Still, he maybe needs a tad bit more experience. I say quarters.

    monaco is nothing new, hes been on the tour for awhile now, just struggled with injury like alot of pros. Had he stayed healthy I'm sure he would be a top 25 player and would have been seeded.

    I would say Quarters or 4th round. I doubt he can beat Del Potro and Djokovic back to back.

    If only he could only improve his first serve he would be a lot higher in the rankings.

    i agree. he has the game to take out del potro on clay since monaco's game is better suited to clay than delpo's. if monaco is on, he has the game and the experience to push djokovic into 5, which i think will favor monaco more. however, beating delpo and djokovic successively is a tall order.

    I saw his match yesterday against Baghy and i must say it was one of the better matches i saw, very good player and very fast.

    4th round I'd say, don't think he's got it in him to do DelPo

    4th round is within his capabilities. I don't think however he can beat Djoker. 4th round would be a good progress for him nonetheless.
