How high will Vince "Ice" Spadea go this year? Part 2
I meant for the first thread to be a poll but I screwed up. Hopefully these can be merged.
Well in the early goings of 2008, Vince has shown everyone that he is on a mission this year. He was barely edged out by Nieminen in the QF's in Adelaide in a match that saw him save 8 match points in a second set before going down in a final set tiebreaker. At the AO, he came back from 2 sets down against Stepanek in the first round and saved match points against Gremelmayr in the next round. He followed that up with a final in Hawaii. And just today he had his third win of the year over Gremelmayr in Delray Beach, a tournament he could seriously make the final of. Will this success continue or will the 33 year old American tire before things really get interesting? Where do you think he'll be come December?
Personally, I really think a top 30 showing is possible. He really had no big tournaments last years so he doesn't have huge point loads to defend and he's obviously way more confident than he was at any time last year. Your turns...
