Who will join the first title club in 2010? Congrats Kukushkin

2008 had 11 first time winners and 2009 had a huge total of 5 and as usual a couple of bolters in there.

2010
Code:
Name				Venue		Surface		

John Isner		(USA)	Auckland	Hardcourt
Ernests Gulbis		(LAT)	Delray Beach	Hardcourt
Andrei Golubev		(KAZ)	Hamburg		Clay
Viktor Troicki		(SRB)	Moscow		Indoor Hardcourt 
Mikhail Kukushkin		(KAZ)	St.Petersburg		Indoor Hardcourt

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: Who will join the first title club in 2010?

I believe Leo Mayer has the potential to snatch a 250 somewhere, rather on hard than clay.

He's the one i will follow closely in 2010 as he has the game to bother higher ranked players, he just need to accumulate experience.

My secret hope is for a serious break through for Grigor Dimitrov, but he'll need to book a couple of challenger titles first, so the reasonable expectations for an ATP tittle should be for 2011 for him.
Still, even more shocking things have happened in tennis, so why not earlier?

Re: Who will join the first title club in 2010?

Was any of the 2009 new winners on your list from last year?

I went other last year and thought Lu might step up but he's been very ordinary.

This year I've gone for Tipsy (made a final or 2 this year?) and Isner. I think big John may sneak in with one of the MM's between the AO and IW.

Check 2009 thread blibo and you will see them.

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".

I think Evgeny Korolev or Andreas Beck. Both made finals this year.

I'm sticking my neck out and saying Ernests Gulbis, again.

Re: Who will join the first title club in 2010?

Isner will probably win a title in the U.S. at some point next year and I expect Cuevas to win something in February.

Tipsarevic I think has the potential, but he has for years now.

Gulbis
