I think the biggest problem for him is when he travels long distances, moving from one continent to another.

Re: Will Dolgopolov reach top 20 this year?

Top 15. He can play on grass as he showed last year. We just saw what he can do on hard court. And clay is his favorite surface. Big Dog might even have a chance to make top 10 this year if he keeps improving and getting stronger. Those wins over inform Soderling and Tsonga were devastatingly impressive.

Re: Will Dolgopolov reach top 20 this year?

just like the 'tennis fans' apparently have the tendency to write off true top players too soon, whenever they suffer one of their occasional glitches (for some, this even includes 'not being able to defend a title, while still managing to reach the finals of said tournament'), there's this same tendency to over-hype the Young-and-Coming.

Dolgo has been doing fine so far and I'm happy to see that. I hope he'll be able to continue his great run so far, as the sport truly needs new blood right now. I'm not going to call for any predictions right now, as it is that Many have been summoned to the Altar, but only few manage to get there.

Best of luck to Dolgo, I'd really like for him to become a power to reckon with in the near future.

Since today, February 21 Dolgo is No. 26, even after the first round loss in Buenos Aires he moved up

He isn't that young, he's 22 IIRC. He's pretty good on clay as well as HC, so yes I think he'll make the top 20 this year.

It's not the matter of hype; the old out of shape players who occupy higher positions will fall down, it's a matter of time, probably a short one. Someone must replace them and Dolgo doesn't defend that many points (mostly challengers and low rounds on ATP level) so yes, his ranking will go up very soon.

both him and Raonic. the rest of the youth field is not showing signs of rapid progress in the rankings.

They could make a great rivalry in the future. Completely different styles, like Pete and Andre. Will be fun to watch.

He needs about only 25-30 point for top 20.

Never ever give up
