Post Is Melzer top 10 material?

Considering his form has become amazing out of nowhere, on clay of all surfaces, considering his sort of game.

I think Jurgen has a great game, a lot of talent, and would certainly make a great addition to the top 10.

I think he can. What do yous think?

Re: Is Melzer top 10 material?

I'm afraid he peaked too late. Anyway Top 20 it's a very good ranking for him, through many years he could only dream about it, now it's a fact.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

Re: Is Melzer top 10 material?



Not really for me.
He's just a steady top 30 player, has no real weapon except big forehand and can be mentaly weak what he showed in many, many tight matches...
He doesn't have the nickname Meltzer for nothing, you know.

Matyaz

His best chance in reaching the top 10 is now! I believe if he wins RG he's world number 9 or 10

Re: Is Melzer top 10 material?

Doubt it. There's nothing exceptional about Melzer, though I kinda like him. And if he lost yesterday, people wouldn't even be talking about this.
