Philipp Petzschner: Provisional ranking #96.

-35 French Open + -150 Halle means an over 40 point drop in the rankings for Picasso. Injuries and poor form have cost him big time and now he'll have to rebuild his singles career once again. It's harder for him to do it than other players given his doubles obligations, but he defends zero until August after Halle, so he can return to the top 100 pretty quickly with some good results on grass and quicker HC.

Discuss.

Re: Philipp Petzschner: Provisional ranking #141.

very expected with his results/form this season. Hope he can make some sort of mini-splash on the grass.

He has the potential to make some noice on the grass season. Looking forward to see Picasso back in action.

Isn't he 117 positions away from the Olympics? He was never playing there anyway.

He is good player and joy to watch when on fire. Unfortunately he is very injury prone
Hopefully he finds get some form at grass and fast hard court season

Re: Philipp Petzschner: Provisional ranking #96.

Picasso up to provisional #96 and official ranking #101 after making the finals in S'Hertogenbosch this past week. Also with 70 points in Canada being the only significant points he defends the second half of the season, Picasso has the chances to maybe even finish top 50 this season. At the very least he almost definitely will make the USO MD, which is good.

Re: Philipp Petzschner: Provisional ranking #96.

looks like dropping out of the top 100 was the kick in the ass he needed to get going

hopefully he heeps going and regains his place in the top 100 where he belongs
