LOVE Berankis. He wowed at the LA Tourney this year, going from Qualies all the way to the final, where he finally ran out of gas against Querrey. Same deal at the AO - qualies, then runs into Murray, but still fought very well.

He's such a great player -- good enough for even Roger to invite him to train with him in Dubai a couple offseasons ago -- but that height will always be an issue.

Story on Berankis with some background on himself and his coach -- really charming relationship between the two, and a super sweet kid...
