Smile How good can this Ouanna be?

This is not meant to be a bandwagon thread.

Today we have seen a very good performance from this 23 year old frenchman. He is a late developer, only three years ago he was ranked around No.600, playing futures and last year at Roland Garros he was ranked No. 227 when losing to JMDP in the 1st round...after that he went back playing futures and challengers with good success. And now he is at No.134.

Looking at his ranking and playing activity I'm wondering...was this just one great day or a beginning of something big?
I think he could brake into top 100, it will be interesting to see if he can build on this, he has some weapons and a solid mentality.

Re: How good can this Ouanna be?

Good win against Safin but do we really need this thread? Ouanna was solid but nothing special, his natural ranking will be around top 40-80.

Re: How good can this Ouanna be?

it'a not about Ouanna. It's all about Safin and how the mind can rule outcome in professional tennis. It's beyond being sad as far as Safin followers are concerned. Safin followers are speechless.

Re: How good can this Ouanna be?

Where this will be decided is in the next few weels in the challengers and qualies. can Ouanna keep up this level of play vs loeeser competition. can he play up or will he play down to the level of his opponent? His consistency of results will be what decides this. if he can play at this level consistently than I will say he will be top 40

Re: How good can this Ouanna be?

He needs to enter big events so that his ranking will improve to within top hundred,he is really a composed guy and doesnt make a lot of errors.He was toe to toe with big server Safina,he can drop shot,serve and volley and uses slice effectively.
If he enters top 100 and is able to get into big events his ranking will improve.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: How good can this Ouanna be?

Let's not get carried away. It WAS one match against The Safin. And I'm a Safin fan.. But not that speechless based on recent performances.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

This win does not erase losses like the one against Economidis
