    I know that many people around these parts are really sick of hearing about this kid. But with his improved results and inevitable arrival in the top 100 he will start gaining entrance into main draws next year. So where do you think he will end up at the end of 08'. I will say the 70's

    should have gone with the last choice, but thought i would actually vote for where i thought he might be this time next year. a little older, more mature, and better player (i hope) by this time next year. only time will tell.

    Top 50. The more he plays the better players, the better he'll get himself. Right now his biggest problems are stamina and focus. When opposing powerful players his game tends to deteriorate by the third set, which brings out his emotions...that's where focus comes in.

    It is hard to say. I am guessing to guess in the top 100 but out of the top 50.

    He might get into the top 50, but it will be interesting to see how he adjust to playing abroad, and at a higher level. I think he maybe ready, but is he able? :confused:

    Actually big fella, maybe you "ain't kdding"..:confused: You've posted that you "dislike" Monfils; think Young and Blake are overrated; Serena and Venus are "men".........binky, maybe you just DON'T like black people. The first step is to admit it..:p

    Can't play in the Seniors tour unless you get a top 10 ranking as an ATP Pro.

    Wow, he's only 20? Only time I saw him was a couple of years ago in the US Open playing against Blake and he gave him a good match. The guy's got good game but he needs to hit the weights.

    Yeah hes short and srawny. Oliver rochus is small but he has a crazy backhand. When he played blake earlier in the year he impressed me.

    There's nothing great about his game; even when he's 100% on he can't beat most of the top 30 who are having average days.

    Huh? Another poll about this guy? Who the heck is he,I never saw him accomplishing anything on the ATP Tour yet people are talking so much about him.

    I'll come back when the hype materialises.
