Will Dolgopolov make the WTF in 2012?

He finishes this year ranked 16. If he can get some more consistency and cut out the 1st round losses that he has had at too many events this year, he can boost his ranking. He also has the skill for one deep run at a slam(quarters or semis) next year. Can he find the consistency to finish in the top 8? A lot of it will depend on how others do as well. It will be very tough, but I think he has a shot.

Re: Will Dolgopolov make the WTF in 2012?

I really hope he won't. He's so hot and cold and can't win two great matches back to back. His game is fun to watch but not really good for a top 6-7 game.

He definitely needs better scheduling to achieve this, in my view he played too maany tournaments this year, which could well explain his up and down performances.

Better scheduling, considering this disease of his which apparently gives him troubles adapting after long travels, should be the first measure he & his team should be taking. It may well do wonders to his very poor consistency in tournaments.

Hope he manages, I'd love to see him make it big.

Re: Will Dolgopolov make the WTF in 2012?

I don't think he will, altough i would love that he made it, i expect him ending between #10 and #16 next year, not improving much

Re: Will Dolgopolov make the WTF in 2012?

Nope. He's not the type of player that has that discipline and consistency. He does stupid things on key points sometimes. He'll eventually hit 10-12 but even if he made it within the top 8 I think he'd go back to 10 or something just before the tournament, just not consistent enough and his serve is suspect.

Re: Will Dolgopolov make the WTF in 2012?

he just doesn't strike me as a player who will get all his pieces together at once. I personally think he overachieved this year so i think the ranking will drop rather than seeing him go higher.

And also would be bad for this lame sport where clowns like Fish are top 8 players.

Hell no He's consistent as my ass, it would be bad for ATP to have him ranked so high.

I did not know an ass had any consistency
Although I love watching him play I don't see him being a top 8 next year.

To be honest I don't give chance for him. He flashed few times in this year but he needs even better performance than that.

Never ever give up

Hmm. I think FiloV's, safin-#1, and perhaps a couple of more guys' asses do have some kind of consistency eh.

o_O. Did I just post that?
