Re: Which Serve-Bot will have the best season next season?

Raonic - Raonic will have the best season of all these guys, imo.
Anderson - he will stay in top 30 next season.
Isner - I say he will capture 1-2 titles next season, top 30 finish
Roddick - 2012 is probably's Roddick's final season. So retirement for him
Karlovic - i say he will drop out of top 100 by end of next season.
Muller - muller will have an average to mediocre season, will stay in top 100 though.

andy really hasnt expressed any desire to retire, and when you hear his interviews you can see with him the desire to play is still strong so i wouldnt count on his reitrement any time soon

Re: Which Serve-Bot will have the best season next season?

Raonic will develop his all-round game enough to elevate himself from the clutches of the classification of "bot".. which is only slightly higher in the food chain to "pusher". If we're freezing them and classifying them as they are now, rather than dropping them from the discussion when they elevate themselves to at least "Serve with a forehand".. then Milos definately.

Anderson I don't even consider a serve-bot, has alot of other attributes that stand out.. including that unique face. Probably will stay around where he is now.

Isner has a massive forehand. "Well yeeah! Isners forehand is one of the best on tour!" says typical 1980s bloke and expert Peter Fleming. It can only propel him to further heights.. new American number 1 and top 10 is likely.

I won't comment on the rest as it will be like describing the future potential of garden gnomes. Also Ivo's twitter is too juicy to diss the guy, while I must admit gnome isn't the first thing that comes to mind when I think of him. Big Daddy cool.. yeah, that's more appropriate.

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.

Agree pretty much about everything.

If Roddick isn't going to retire next year he'd better be prepared to face some massive defeats, so I don't think he'll do better than this (not-so-great) year. He has been defeated by fucking Cipolla, enough said. 1 title for him in 2009, 2 in 2010, 1 in 2011, 0 in 2012.

If Raonic will be fit he will probably have a great season; even Kevin will improve.

Don't know about Karlovic, but looking to his 2011 awful season (defeated by Kudla, Brands, Dodig etc.) it would be smart for him to retire too.

Re: Which Serve-Bot will have the best season next season?

Raonic - i dont really know. to say he'll have the best season of them all isnt that hard because..look at who your comparing him too. I think he'll crack top 20 but he wont win anything else, although he'll get close. The biggest challenge he'll have his following up his break through season which isnt always easy to do

Anderson - pretty similar season to this one, he might win one of the weaker events next season.

Isner - with nothing to defend early on if he is in form i could see him cracking top 10 but he wont stay there for long. He'll win some titles and id expect another deep run or maybe more at a bigger event. Fish will still finish the year as the number one american but he'll be number 2.

Roddick - already said i disagree that next year will be his final year. He has had some awful losses but he's also had some really good wins over guys like anderson and ferrer. He'll stick around for a while but he'll hang around where he is now and will be the number 3 american.

Karlovic - again, disagree. He'll stick inside the top 100. could also surprise with a run at a big event

Muller - Gilles will stick inside the top 100. He'll continue to bounce between atp and challengers though and it will be enough. I could also see him winning one of the weaker 250's .

Raonic and Isner will have pretty good seasons, finishing around top 10 area. Dunno about the rest.

Re: Which Serve-Bot will have the best season next season?

Tough one between Isner and Raonic.

If Raonic stays healthy, his age indicates he will only get better and improve - so i'll go with Milos.

Roddick has expressed no desire to retire and gets emotionally flustered when asked about the subject. That said, Andy has always said he will not be "one of those who can't contend for anything major, but still linger around the top 50".

So, if he continues his decline he will turn into "one of those guys". Whether or not he retires then is yet to be seen.
