He should do it. He has a poor record this year on clay but I witnessed some of those sharp losses and was reported as well about his match against Pico in Estoril and he is definetely not as hopeless as many people think.

It was very good for big Sam to go and play on the clay and hope he does it again. It will be better for his game in the long haul, it worked for big Todd Martin. The movement, well he is never going to be Donovan Bailey across the court.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

And look at where he plays from in (or should I say out of) the court. You can't change the spots on a leopard.

It's hard to predict these boys. But i think Korolev, Zverev, or Young will have the good career over the rest.

Don't think any of them will have brilliant careers, but most success will come from Gulbis, Young, and Querrey.

Re: Part 2. Which one of these 8 youngsters will have the best career?

Querry is a headcase. I saw him choke badly to Roddick in a match at the LA tournament. He had Roddick in a headlock and just froze. He does not have the necessary drive to win consistently.

I only recognize a couple players (Young, Querey,Tsonga), but I think Young could do well.

Re: Part 2. Which one of these 8 youngsters will have the best career?

I actually never did a list for this. I will be looking forward to seeing how they progress.

1. Korolev
2. Gulbis
3. Cilic
4. Young
5. Tsonga
6. Querrey
7. Zverev
8. Bolelli

I will go into detail a bit later.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Part 2. Which one of these 8 youngsters will have the best career?

It's nice to see Korolev top a lot of lists or at least be #2 or #3. I have seen him play and like him. I first heard of Young in 2005, and laughed along with everyone else when he got double bagelled by a guy who had never won an ATP match before (Berloq) that only to be double bagelled by Blake in the next round. He impressed me at the USO this year, however. It's amazing to finally see a pro player younger than I if only by a month. I am looking ofrward to following these boys' careers.

Cilic and Tsonga have good starts to the season.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
