No way. He sucks too much on clay.

If Gooch chooses to be top 10 he will be.

Bernie will certainly be there one day, not sure if it will be next year though.

I don't know about top 12, lots of solid guys in that group, but I see him top 15, 12 in the world, sure. I like what I see from him.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: will TOMIC be only 19 years old in Top ten next year

It all depends on how he does in Australia. That should be the highlight of his season, if he can win a 250 there and make a run to the second week of the AO he could really shoot up in the rankings

Re: will TOMIC be only 19 years old in Top ten next year

2013 will probably be the year he properly breaks through and flies into the top 10. Till then his results will more than likely be too sporadic to get into the top 10. Top 15 is very realistic though.

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.

What a brilliant win from Tomic over Fish today. The signs were there when he troubled Djokovic more than anyone else at Wimbledon. Tomic is on the way.

I like Tomic's game but let's face it, Fish was rubbish today.

Re: will TOMIC be only 19 years old in Top ten next year

Top 20 would be great for him.
I don't think he's good enough for top 10. And he may never be apart from a brief and temporary ascendancy.

he needs a good draw to reach the second week and even then he will probably lose in the QF
