Spadea won a title in his 30s. Berlocq could win a low level clay event.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

We have to be talking about really low level for Berlocq to win a clay title. Like, Santiago where half the field isn't top 100. In any quality ATP event, he wouldn't make finals let alone win an event.

Starace out of nowhere might finally win something...as for others, we will have probably some surprising winners (like Sweeting etc) from someone who is ranked outside TOP 100...hard to say an example right now, you never now who will rise suddenly throughout the seasson.

Re: Who will join the 1st title club in 2012?

Sweeting really got handed the title, more than actually winning it with good play. I think it's quite clear that was a fluke and it takes a lot of luck to win a title in those situations.

With that said, I like Berlocq too, it would be nice to see him winning a title. Also I want to see Poto winning a title. They've been around forever and deserve a payoff.

I hope Potito, he has had some chances and he deserves clearly a title, at least one
I see Fognini ending the career as a virgin

Dimitrov will only win a title if he works on his backhand extensively over the winter break and stops mentally collapsing in matches he should be winning.

Re: Who will join the 1st title club in 2012?

young could be the first one next year if he can blend his tennis with some patience......there are ample opportunities in america in the early season after australian open with so many tiny mug events lined up......

tomic's turn will come a little later in the season......harrison will have to wait for an indefinite period......fognini is too inconsistent to win any title......dimitrov will have done exceedingly well if he reaches quarterfinals of 250 events, forget about titles......bogmolov jr. wins if he gets lucky somewhere......starace, falla and berlocq are not winning anything......

Jesus Federico Del Bonis. Pronounced "Heysus".

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
