    lettuce be cereal, pooptro will never win another grand slam title

    but, he is still a solid top 10 quality player when at his best. winning a masters series title should be a realistic and achievable goal to aim for during the remainder of his career

    will he get there? i hope so. he is more deservin of a masters title than someone like berdych

    He can, he just needs that extra motivation, the only reason the match lasted that long was the fact that he was playing for Argentina.

    If it was a normal 3 set match, I doubt it would've gone the distance.

    He has the ability though.

    2009 Montreal Masters was a close affair that he should have won.

    I can see it happening if he can play consistenly against the big guys. After injury he stills plays some great performances: 2011 FO Djokovic, 2011 WB Nadal, 2011 DC Nadal and Djokovic, 2012 FO Federer and Olympics Federer.



    That type of play will help win a MS1000 event.

    He can definitely win a Masters. He's had success in the summer hard court season before, so Canada might be his best bet. But then Shanghai and Paris tend to have slightly depleted fields, so he also has a shot there. Of course, I wouldn't be surprised to see him win any Masters event, even one of the clay ones. When he's in the zone, he can take out anyone.

    Yes, he will. And he will win the USO again too. Maybe next year.

    He has the goods, problem is there are 4 other superstars and he almost always has to go thru 2 of them to win anything big

    I think he can. He's always dangerous,and a threat to win any tournament he enters.

    He can probably win Toronto, but Ferrer poses a threat to him if he plays. Otherwise, no, I see him winning the Estoril 250 tournament a few times though.

    He's turning into Ferrer in terms of failing to pull out big matches.

    I don't think he will
