Santiago Giraldo will be top 20 next season

he's very talented player. pushed hard nadal in tokyo this year on hard, great player on clay. he just needs to be better in hard courts, also needs to get better as mental. his game is phenemonal. he is not old, just 24 years old. i think he will be top 20 next season and will get his first atp title for sure. what do you think about santi in 2012? vamos.

Re: Santiago Giraldo will be top 20 next season

I like Giraldo.... he needs to find better consistent level on serve though, his serving speeds really fluctuate wildly.

Re: Santiago Giraldo will be top 20 next season

Giraldo is not Top-20 material, between #25 and #35 if he is lucky. However, he should get an ATP title in Chile or Brasil.

Re: Santiago Giraldo will be top 20 next season

Seriously, I think you overrate him too much. He hasn't a real weapon in his game imo. Also he's very unstable mentally. He's a solid top 60 player, nothing more imo.

Re: Santiago Giraldo will be top 20 next season

Giraldo is not bad but as other's have stated, he has no true weapon and I can't see him better than a top 30 player unless something changes dramatically in his game

Re: Santiago Giraldo will be top 20 next season

He can generate incredible power with his forehand but he lacks everything rest. If he finds consistency and a good serve, he might reach top30.

Re: Santiago Giraldo will be top 20 next season

Maybe, he improved this year, further improvements could get him there. Needs to be better off clay in general to do it.

Re: Santiago Giraldo will be top 20 next season

To say he lacks a weapon is incredibly incorrect. His first serve, and both FH and BH are, at times, major weapons for any player to deal with. His issues are consistency, variety and defense, not lack of weapons.
