Well the question was CAN HE, not will he next year right? And my answer is, definitely. He's beaten plenty of top clay courters, and he has a great game for clay. Patience is what he needs to develop, and once he develops that on a clay court while playing the very best on clay, he'll be able to win the French. I have no doubt that he CAN do it.
