Yes he is, and time is on his side, he can develop his game + competiton in future like Tomic, Dimitrov, HArrison, Raonic - each of themwill be top 10 so why not Janowicz. I can see him next year to be top 20

Next match against a top 4 player will tell.

Re: Is Jerzy Janowicz top 10 material??

he has a good serve, solid groundstrokes and moves decently for someone that tall (plus got some nice touch as well)so why not.
And Mardy Fish was top10 at one point : must give hope to a lot of players.

Talent and potential he has, his mental toughness tested has to be.

Re: Is Jerzy Janowicz top 10 material??

In terms of peak form he's already shown he's up there, whether he can deliver it consistently or maybe twice a year is another matter.

Re: Is Jerzy Janowicz top 10 material??

This is the indoors season, the tourney before the World Tour Finals. A lot of seemingly random players make runs here. Forgetting Stakhovsky def. Nadal last year and Benneteau def. Federer the year before?

Time will tell but for the moment I'm putting it down to the above.

Re: Is Jerzy Janowicz top 10 material??

He moves like a fucking beast given that he is 6'8" o.o I mean he moves better than many shorter players than him. I'm worried with such a huge frame and that much aggressive movement that he will be prone to injury, however, if he can manage his athletic abilities, he definitely is top 10 material. Fantastic serve, very solid ground game and net skills are adequate from what I've seen so far. He doesn't really ballbash though which is cool to see, he tries to work the point and then he'll play with pace on the right shots. Again, worried how this type of style may affect him physically but it will be very interesting to watch in 2013. Man, would have loved to see how far he could have gotten at Wimbledon this year had he beaten Mayer.

E. he loves the dropshot and occasionally has pretty good feel with it too!

Wait what? When did Stakhovsky beat Rafa?

He won't even crack top 20. Another serve bot.
