Kozlov has an extremely high tennis IQ and he is the ultimate competitor. Those two qualities give him a chance regardless of who he plays. He may not pound the ball every shot, however; he can hit the ball and that's part of his magic - you never know what you're going to get. If you let your guard down for 1 second he can take a ball on the rise and flatten a sick angle or go down the line. I'm not putting him on the tour just yet, but people doubt this kid wherever he goes and all he does is win.
