Re: Who will be ATP Newcomer of the Year 2012?

yeah Stebe was the other guy in my mind, he hasn't really done a whole lot at the ATP level yet though

Re: Who will be ATP Newcomer of the Year 2012?

i think raonic will make his mark in 2012. what is his rank right now? is it #35?

he could sneak into top 20 if he can do well at some of the masters events.

Stebe or maybe even James Duckworth if he picks things up quickly. He showed real talent in Brisbane, I think (maybe it was Auckland?).

Re: Who will be ATP Newcomer of the Year 2012?

I'm not entirely sure who would be considered a "newcomer". My pick is that the Canadians will keep that title two years in a row with Vasek Pospisil.

ETA: looking at that list... Fabrice Santoro was newcomer of the year in 1990? Wow!

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.

Re: Who will be ATP Newcomer of the Year 2012?

Hm. Fed, Djoker and Murray were never newcomers of their respective breakthrough years.

My guess would be whoever rapidly rose out of nowhere, like Milos did last year.

Let's see.. Marti is beginning to impress. Pospisil should be rising this year but has struggled of late. Then there's Del Bonis, Elias, Goffin and a whole bunch of other 21 year olds.

Stebe

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.

I don't think anyone Maybe Dimitrov and Harrison can finally start winning, but they are not newcomers.
