He was a top ten junior at one point. Don't really know if he thought it was going to be easy or what. Maybe it just took him more time to adjust. De Bakker is having his best year this year and he was a top junior in 2006. Some just devellop at different rates.
As for his chances of winning in France, let's be honest, he should win the damn thing.
I like the sound of that
And yes, they do develop at different rates, and some develop later than others. Doesn't mean they're any less of a player. It just means it takes them loger to reach their best level and to be consistent.
Seriously, Bester seems to be on an amazing run, so I'm hoping to see some more good stuff from him! Dancevic is also playing really good it seems. So at least there's some good stuff coming from the Canadian players, even though others kinda disappoint (Pospisil, Ponalsky etc).
I don't know if someone answered my question, I don't think so, but I'll ask again.. What do you guys think about the qualifying draw for Milos and Peter? Good draws? Difficult draws? Do you think either of them has a chance of qualifying? Or are they doomed? Please, I want to know what you think. I'm not very familiar with the lower-ranked players, other than like Giraldo, De Bakker, Nishikori etc.
