Pablo Cuevas in 2013? Comeback begins in Santos

[youtube]zpc5_IkYqoQ[/youtube]
I love to watch his game and hope he can rediscover the form he had earlier this year. He had a great first part of the year, but missed the second half. But for me he was one of most promising players at about March or April. He is now outside the top 100, but he's only defending a few tournaments. I think he can get into seeded-at-Slam status if he plays anywhere near a full season the way he was playing this year. He's not on AO entry list though and I'm unsure when he's returning. Do you think he will be able to come back in 2012 and rise in the rankings?

Re: Pablo Cuevas in 2012?

Cuevas has a new coach, he just needs to get fit play some challengers to get back into the groove. Improve his forehand as for being seeded at Slams. Troicki should give hope to players outside of the top 32 some hope.

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: Pablo Cuevas in 2012?

Hopefully he'll have at least one good slam next year at last ffs.

I'm sure he will be top 30 for some time in his career, not sure if in 2012.

Re: Pablo Cuevas in 2012?

Cuevas is on the Entry List for Acapulco, Indian Wells qualies but very unlikely to play them. Seems like Monte Carlo will be his comeback.

Would be better to play some challengers as well.

He has a PR of 54.

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: Pablo Cuevas in 2012?

My main question about him would not be about his ranking but : when and how will he come back ?

he has been out for a very long time now.

He tried to come back for Davis cup, he was in the team but didn't play any match eventually (his team with his younger brother especially could win without him), how is he now ?

As for his ranking, he can probably be top-30 but probably rather in 2013, this year will be more difficult.

useless old guy

Re: Pablo Cuevas in 2012?

Cuevas had another knee surgery and will be on crutches for another 4 weeks. He is doing all the kinesiology, pool and gym work he can, so he is out indefinitely. Might be lucky and play the South American Challs at the end of the year.

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

Re: Pablo Cuevas in 2013?

Adjusted the title and Pablo is going to play Gaudio on Jan 3 in the Punta del Este exho. Yes, Roddick will be playing del Potro in the other match.

Hope Cuevas can actually play it.

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

Re: Pablo Cuevas in 2013?

Yeah, I saw that. I'm surprised, and I don't want to be given false hope.

I was informed last month that February 2013 was his new target return date, so that implies to me that this exhibition will be much less than semi-serious, if he makes it on court.
