The first time I really saw him play was IW 2017 against Stan, and I was surprised how close he came to beating a solid Stan. Then he blew his ACL a few weeks later and has been on the comeback since the beginning of 2018, in which he won his first ATP title. Watching him against Delpo, and he’s got a solid game overall, including a nice lefty forehand, solid backhand, good ball movement, quick feet, and I’d say his defense is his best attribute. He’s only 23 and has already climbed up to 75 in the world, being as high as 58 before injury, I’m wondering how far up the rankings he could get in a few years. Top 20 most likely, maybe top 10?

Probably peaks at 30 with average ranking between 40 - 60.
His game is decent enough to beat Top 30 players not at their best, but in form guys in the top 20 should beat him without much trouble.
Ideal matchups for him are slow moving guys with bad/average backhands.
