I'm not putting him on the tour just yet, but people doubt this kid wherever he goes and all he does is win.
I agree Kozlov is already a really good player. But right now, good men will attack his serves, even his 1st serves then hold their own with service winners and aces. No doubt he will make a good living as a tour pro in 5-6 years.
Brad - Has DB played Kozlov in the last couple of years?
