What do you expect from Somdev Devvarman in 2012?

I am not sure what to expect. His game seems to have reached it's ceiling. Unless he has found some angle to take which he has not taken previously.

what do you expect?

I think he peaked in the first half of 2011. I expect him to be around #110 this season.

Re: What do you expect from Somdev Devvarman in 2012?

I mean, unless he changes his game, I expect him to be in the 2nd half of the top 100 for much of the year.

He's very solid, doesn't make many errors, so that should keep him top 70-80 or so, but if he slips up, or gets injured, God forbid, he'll drop for sure.

I'd like to see him develop an explosive shot. Any shot, really. Big forehand, big backhand, big serve, I don't care, he's just got to get something resembling offense in his game. Then he can crack the top 50.

Had a very good start to 2011 from what I remember.

But yeah I'm not expecting much, just some decent results.
