Most impressive this year?

Who so far this year has impressed you the most?

For me it's Nadal, Hewitt and Dolgopolov in that order.

(I'm aware this is always subject to change, especially if Berdych or Murray for example wins Wimbledon)

"My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories."

Bjorn Borg

Roland Garros, France
Grand Slam, 29-May-78



R128 Deblicker, Eric (FRA) N/A 6-1 6-1 6-1
R64 Fagel, Rick (USA) N/A 6-0 6-1 6-0
R32 Bertolucci, Paolo (ITA) N/A 6-0 6-2 6-2
R16 Tanner, Roscoe (USA) N/A 6-2 6-4 7-6
Q Ramirez, Raul (MEX) N/A 6-3 6-3 6-0
S Barazzutti, Corrado (ITA) N/A 6-0 6-1 6-0
W Vilas, Guillermo (ARG) N/A 6-1 6-1 6-3

Re: Most impressive this year?

Dolgopolov's quick maturity on the tennis tour.
Berdych's consistency with great results and drastically improved mental toughness since Indian Wells

Re: Most impressive this year?

Dolgo is definitely up there. His maturity and ability to quickly acclimate himself to the ATP tour has been very impressive. For me, it has to be Nadal, especially if he wins Wimbledon. The ability to come back from being injured last year and the start of this year to get to all SF outside of one tournament in return and potentially win 2 majors is amazing. I would also have to put Berdych up there, for showing he can consistently threaten and beat top players in critical moments, which is something he had not shown.

Re: Most impressive this year?

Berdych for sure. Also Gulbis (he was SO unlucky to be injured in the last two slams ).

Nadal for his clay sweep was also impressive.

Verdasco's Wimbledon loss was unimpressive, I hope he can redeem himself.

Tennis is life...
Motivated Paire Berdych Gulbis Wawrinka Dimitrov Verdasco Giraldo

Re: Most impressive this year?

1) Nadal- He had not won a tournament in quite a while, after his 2009 Roland Garros loss people were doubting him ever coming back to the top, now he has won three straight Masters and Roland Garros only dropping two sets along the way. He is back to number one and has a great chance to win Wimbledon.

2) Berdych- He has finally proven himself in the slams, is playing the tennis of his life.

3) Soderling- proved that he has a place in the top 5.

4) Gulbis- Proven that he can take out some of those big names.

5) Ferrer- has had a really good season so far(aside from Roland Garros). Will be top ten soon.

* would have had Verdasco in their since he was finally living up to his potential and beating some top names but his bad scheduling has somewhat ruined his season/health.

VAMOS EN 2013

Re: Most impressive this year?

I've been impressed by Gulbis. He was really down and out. Losing in the first round every tournament, picking up prostitutes... Maybe it was those few minutes in jail that gave him the motivation he needed to play some good tennis. He has had an excellent year - too bad about the injury. Hopefully he'll be back and in good form for the US Open.
