Here is the thread about our Nikolay in 2013!
Those were the previous five questions in the end of 2011:
1- Do you think he still has it in him and can get to TOP 10?
2- Do you think he can keep himself in top 50 till the end of the year ?
3- Does he will retire in the end of 2012 ?
4- Can he prolong his streak with at least one title in 2012?
5- Can he go to at least 4rd round in a GS ? he haven't been there since AO in 2010 infact only one 3rd round for 2 whole years ..... ?
1-Obviously no... although he challenged TOP 10 players in his matches
2-Yes 2011 Y.E. ranking 41 ----- 2012 Y.E. ranking 44
3-No... He said that he's a happy top-50 player
4-No... The streak lasted from 2003 to 2011 (9 consecutive years)
5-No... Since 2010 AO (11 GSs) he has: 1 N/A | 5 1R | 4 2R | 1 3R |
Now i want to discuss with you those questions in the end of 2012:
1-Can he at least once beat a top 10 player?
2-Will he remain in top-50 in the end of 2013?
3-Does he will retire during 2013 or in the end of the year?
4-Will he reach fourth round in a slam ?
5-Can he beat Nadal in 2013?
1-Yes he can and will beat 3 times a top 10 player !
2-Yes he will end in top 30!
3-He will retire in the end of 2013 i'm 100% sure!
4-Yes he will reach 2R AO | 3R FO | 1R WO | 4R UO !
5-Yes he can if they play on hard court! Thus ending 7-5 vs Nadal.
