Re: Grading 2012: Carlos Berlocq
I expect Charly to get many A's. Personally, I'd give him somewhere between a B and C. If one truly looks at his results, they are not impressive. He beat guys in slumps (Istomin, Matosevic, Roddick), he did very well against players out of the top 70/80. But once he went against a quality player in form, he almost always lost the match. His ranking is actually healthier than it should be given he's been lucked out with draws for most of the season.
But, given Charly's limited talent, he has done very well to finish top 60 without challenger points aiding him. The question is if he can defend his points during the Winter/Spring because if he doesn't, he won't be top 100 anymore.
