Who will join the 1st title club in 2012? (Congrats Martin Klizan)

Of course there will be a few surprise title winners. This year we had 10, lets see how many first time winners there will be next season.

2011 Winners
Code:
Kevin Anderson		(RSA)	Johannesburg	Outdoor Hard
Ivan Dodig		(CRO)	Zagreb		Indoor Hard
Milos Raonic		(CAN)	San Jose	Indoor Hard
Pablo Andujar		(ESP)	Casablanca	Clay
Ryan Sweeting		(USA)	Houston		Clay
Andreas Seppi		(ITA)	Eastbourne	Grass
Alex Dolgopolov		(UKR)	Umag		Clay	
Robin Haase		(NED)	Kitzbühel	Clay
Florian Mayer		(GER)	Bucharest	Clay
Janko Tipsarevic	(SRB)	Kuala Lumpur	Indoor Hard

2012 Winners

Code:
Martin Klizan (SVK)	St.Petersburg	Indoor Hard

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".

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

Tomic - almost certain to. Despite his lack of motivation in small events.
Bogomolov - probably won't happen, he just isn't good enough.
Young - will probably win a mug American title like Atlanta or Delray Beach.
Dimitrov - I think he probably will. Step up now, please!
Starace - deserves one, but I doubt he will. Still, given Tipsy, Mayer and Seppi were able to win one this year, he still might.
Fognini - will probably win a mug clay court title like one of the South American tournaments, Casablanca, one of the July ones or Bucharest.
Falla - could go on a tear somewhere, but I'm not betting on it.
Harrison - see Young. However, he might win somewhere else, too.
Berlocq - He doesn't even win much ATP level matches, let alone go deep enough in a tournament.

Other possibilities:

Benneteau - surely he's gotta win sometime?
Giraldo - see what I said about Fognini.
Ramos - ditto.
Muller - has he won one? Might get one on a quick court.

My guess is that there'll be a random one though. I mean, who would've thought that Dodig, Raonic and Sweeting would've won ATP titles at the end of last year?

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

I think Raonic was exception this year. So, i don't think all of these young guns will win their first titles. (Tomic, Harrison and Dimitrov) Maybe one of them can win, but not two of three or all of them.

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

Benneteau, Fognini and Tomic have the best chances. Giraldo I think has a chance at Santiago again, maybe Acapulco if he's really hot in form. Tomic can win an event like Eastbourne and if he does better with his motivation at smaller events, he can win somewhere like Los Angeles. Benneteau will always have chances to win a title on all surfaces, his mental toughness is the big question for him. I think Fabio for sure gets at least one title. I think his best chances are the pre-French and post-Wimbledon clay events.

I wouldn't put it past Harrison to win a title, maybe at Delray Beach or LA, somewhere like that. I think the chances are below 50% but realistic.

The other men mentioned in this thread will not win a title, and some of them will never win a title.

As example, Falla or Berlocq will never win a one.

If Ryan Sweeting can win a title, anyone can.

Giraldo might win one, but worse guys than Falla and Berlocq have won titles.

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".

Yeah, but i think they are too old to improve. They need to get really lucky to get one.
