    Thus becoming the only teenager in the Top100.

    With his current Wimbledon result he is provisionally number 99 in the world.

    :)

    Keep it going, kid.

    Finally, Harrison deserved it. I wonder how long it will be before he breaks the top fifty?

    I think Ryan can easily take Ferrer to 4 or 5 sets. I don't know how Ferrer's form is lately, but I think Ryan's probably a better grass court player so who knows.

    I think Harrison has a good shot at taking Ferrer out, I haven't watched much Wimbledon, but I heard Harrison had a really good winning net percentage in his first match. I hope the best for Harrison, he'll be taking on a tough veteran

    happy for him.. he obviously got a huge break as LL and he proved it was worth it.. hopefully he can continue cause I don't think usta will negotiate and open more doors for him unless he does some of the work by him self.. obviously wining against Ferrer would be a huge step forward.. he's a great fighter so everything is possible..

    I am happy about Harrison, hopefully he can keep the momentum. If he wants to beat Ferrer today then he better get ready to fight, you have to have the right mentality to beat David.

    You think God takes sides in matches?

    I think they will - if he lets them.

    If I remember correctly, both at this last French Open and at last year's US Open, Harrison actually *declined* wildcards. (Well, at the French he withdrew from a chance to get a wilcard). He's been deliberately playing qualies, to get the match experience.

    It's a win-win. He gets good matches in and improves, and he also saves up his favors - I think if he wanted some wildcards, he'd be able to get them, because he hasn't been using them in the past.

    If he manages to pull the upset against Ferrer, he'll be up at around 89 in the world.

    its good to see some more teenagers making waves..if he can get to round 4 he will be something like 75 and if he somehow then manages to upset tsonga well then he's making waves, however 4th round would be a great run for him and we would start getting into the main draw of atp events =D
