Re: Mate Delic

It's interesting: Delic was always ranked lower than Pavic in the juniors and, until very recently, also in the pros.

Pavic's CH junior ranking was #5 while Delic's was #19. Even though they're almost the same age, Pavic entered the ATP rankings more than two years earlier than Delic. For this reason, I always thought of Delic as the "lesser Mate."

However, Delic has been climbing up the pro rankings quite a bit faster. It took Pavic almost three years to break into the top 500, whereas Delic did it in a little over one and a half. After this week, Delic will be ranked over 100 spots higher.

Pavic will have his chance, I'm sure. He's very talented and he and Delic are both still very young (20).
