Tomic will reach top 10 in 2013.

And stay there for a decade, reaching number 1 of course at some point.

He is perfecting his unorthodox game now, which will be tough to overcome by both attacking and defensive players.

He's not afraid of surfaces he should suck on, he's tackling them and he's willing to learn, it's a sign of surprising maturity. He eyes long term development, but he should be top 10-ready next year already. OK, February 2014 at the latest after solid home ground performances.

He's got a swagger of a champion now and he will have a mind of a champion soon.

He's got a swagger like jagger that's for sure. I too think he is destined for greatness. I just hope he ditches senior and finds a new coach soon.

I don't like him but I think it's very possible.

I hope he swallows some of that arrogance, he needs to. I actually do want to see him succeed but I want him to work very hard for it over many years. I'd hate for him to zoom into the top 10 too easily, it won't do his ego any favours... he needs struggle to become more humble.

Why does he have to be humble ? I wasn't aware of that being a prerequisite to greatness

I never said anything of the sort. What I was alluding to was that a lot of people (including myself) prefer players with a positive persona which helps us to get behind and support that player.

Why do you think Tomic is one of the most hated youngsters out there? Most people need good tennis + good personality before they are willing to support that player. Being humble is a positive trait, arrogance isn't. You could be the best player in the world, but if you're a complete wanker then far fewer people care.

How this is relevant to the OP is that I don't think Tomic will become a top 10 player as early as next year because mentally he needs to mature. His ego is up in the clouds, not surprisingly clouding his judgement. He's too young emotionally... selling his fluro orange Beemer isn't enough. Tough talking teenager is just that... talk.

Even Paire has more chance to do it.
