So a pretty tall order.
But Vasek didn't really start to play great until mid-season, did he? So he has a chance to go far next year if he manages to defend at least some of the points at the end of this season and if he starts to win a a few matches and gain some points at the beginning of next season, right?

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

It turns out that I made a mistake and cheated him of his Canada Masters Points, so actually he only needs about 215 points from now to the end of the year to make the top 100. Still quite a challenge.

In terms of what he has to defend next year, you are right that he started quite slow (comparatively) and then picked up speed.

He won:

- 47 points in January to March 2011
- 103 points in April and May
- 77 points in June and July (included injury time)
- 80 points in August

(not all of these points are currently countable)

So he would be well-placed to make a bit of a move in the early months of 2012.

Re: Vasek Pospisil

What a dream start for Vasek, a 20 minute opening set. Keep it up

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Absolutely cruising, especially on Rosol's second serve, which he's winning 80% of points on.

It's not prediction but called cheering up, positive thinking. What is so wrong with it? The comment was made even before he stepped on the court.

One set to go!

Oh.. lol. I thought the comment was made after the match started because he's cruising, but I refuse to take this as a win until he's actually won the match. You never know yet, anything can happen. Rosol can turn it around. I won't jinx it by saying he'll win just to see him ending up losing instead.

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Is Vasek's serve failing now? Rosol is up 30-0 on Vashy's serve!
