Dolgopolov in 2014 (former "Dolgopolov in 2012")

Dolgo started the new year with a win (7-6(3), 6-2 against Falla in the first round of the Brisbane International)...

His coach sees big future for Dolgopolov... (http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news...-1226230287961)

Dolgopolov on Twitter:
Arrived in Brisbane! Last week and new season starts.. Ready and fired up!))


What do you think about the new season for Dolgo?

Edited:
Dolgo’s ranking points in 2011

January – 425 (20 (Brisbane) + 45 (Sydney) + 360 (AO))
February – 330 (150 (Costa Do Sauipe) + 0 (Buenos Aires) +180 (Acapulco))
March – 135 (45 (Indian Wells) + 90 (Miami))
April - 10 (10 (Monte Carlo) + 0 (Barcelona))
May - 200 (10 (Madrid) + 10 (Rome) + 90 (Nice) + 90 (RG))
June - 30 (20 (Halle) + 0 (Eastbourne) + 10 (W))
July - 250 (0 (Hamburg) + 250 (Umag))
August - 100 (45 (Montreal) + 10 (Cincinnati) + 45 (Winston-Salem))
September - 270 (180 (USO) + 90 (Metz))
October - 180 (0 (Beijing) + 180 (Shanghai) + 0 (Moscow) + 0 (StPetersburg))
November - 90 (0 (Valencia) + 90 (Paris))

He had 13 lost openers. Even he will reduce the number of tournaments in 2012, he has the large reserves for growth in ranking...

Re: Dolgopolov in 2012

Yeah, he's going forward. 8th is a target methinks.

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.

Re: Dolgopolov in 2012

Reader said the plan this year is to reduce tournament play and focus on preparing for the majors.
The question is "Will this new strategy bring sufficient ranking points?"

Can't hurt, since Dolgo seems to nearly die everytime he steps on a plane.

Re: Dolgopolov in 2012

I really have my fingers crossed for Dolgo to do well this year. Top 10 would be amazing but honestly don't know what to expect.

At the beginning on 2011, he was looking like a top 10 player. He had amazing movement and could hurt you from both sides, but towards the end of the year the game really declined. He completely abandoned the backhand drive and an already poor serve percentage got even worse. If he is so lacking and inconsistent in these two key shots then he will have trouble moving up the rankings.

Obviously a lot has been made of the blood disease that he has, so Readers scheduling strategy could be a good one. Hopefully the rest will give Dolgo the energy to go for shots and be an aggressive player instead of trying to junkball the opponents with slices as he did at the end of the year.

Supporting the unusual strokes gang: Dolgopolov, Mayer, Mannarino, Tomic

Re: Dolgopolov in 2012

I wanna him reaching Top 10, but if I have to say what I think is that his 2012 won't be better than his 2011

Re: Dolgopolov in 2012

I think if Reader can keep supplying enough good bud for them both to smoke, he could make top 10.

If Reader starts "bogarting", then Dolgo will drop out of the top 100 due to disinterest.

Great theory.

He has more than a decent chance at the top 10 if he ups his concentration and learns not to fold in adverse conditions. I hope he does.

Re: Dolgopolov in 2012

on a sidenote, anyone who is near him in the 2012 Australian Open draw will likely be very nervous.

I think Alex can trouble and beat any player out there on a good day maybe besides Federer
