Will Dolgopolov reach top 20 this year?

Recently Dolgo has said that his aim for this year is to reach top 20. What do you think? Is it real?

I agree with Luinir. 17-25 sounds about realistic.

Re: Will Dolgopolov reach top 20 this year?

No one can say that with confidence but I'm sure that most of tennis fans would love to see that

because we can agree that there are no young guys in top 50, we need "fresh blood" and Dolgo is definitely a guy to keep an eye on

Re: Will Dolgopolov reach top 20 this year?

He has the talent and game to be a top 10 player, but I think he'll end the year in the top 20.

Re: Will Dolgopolov reach top 20 this year?

He's got the talent, but lots of rough edges to iron out in his game.

Hard to get into top20 with a crap seeding.

Re: Will Dolgopolov reach top 20 this year?

If you look at the players currently at the bottom end of the top 20, they have all stood out somewhere.

Isner and Querrey scored strong points in optionals last year.
Baghdatis and Fish added big performances in Cincinnati to strong results in optionals.
Ljubicic won Indian Wells.

Dolgopolov needs to practically double his current points to mix with these guys, and to do that he'll need to be able to perform more consistently at tour level, and go very deep in draws several weeks of the season.

Does he have the talent to do that? Yes. Does he have the consistency? Questionable.

His choice of scheduling after the Australian Open has been sensible...he should win a good number of matches on South American clay.

Australian Open R4 is a very good start for his ranking this year, but I question whether he can get enough decent results this season to finish top 20. If he can finish comfortably inside the top 32, he might have a better chance next year when he'd enjoy a better seeding (as arf suggests).

Maybe. But I vote for top 30, this is certain.

Never ever give up

Dolgo continues his run. Any changes in attitude to the thread question?
