I think this kid has a lot of potential.
Any info about him?

Re: Nils Langer

Unexpected thread.

I saw him in his big week, when he won a 15k+h title. He has hard baseline shots, but something is missing to make him a big talent imo. He doesn't have the biggest touch and isn't solid enough from the baseline, too many unforced errors. I expect him to reach challenger level.

Re: Nils Langer

Unexpected threads are great.
Yes from the clip I saw his baseline is already challenger level, but like you said he might probably have problems in other areas preventing him to be a big talent, however best of luck to him.

I don´t think so. Of course, he has to be more constant, he still makes too many unforced errors, but this is something, you can learn. I think, e.g. Andreas Beck didn´t play better at the same age, both play similar. Let´s wait for the next two or three years. I expect him to reach at least Top 100.

Re: Nils Langer

Nils hasn't played a tournament since late April - is anybody able to shed any light on his disappearance?

Here's hoping he hasn't sustained an abiding injury.
