Jiri Vesely breaks top-200 and become the only teenager in top-200.

It happened in live rankings after beating Lajovic at Mersin challenger. He is 19y old. Saw this guy only once. It was at Sarajevo ch. Reminds me Berdych in some case. In this strong era, even reaching by youngster top-200 is something. So, great for him. Next opponent is Reister. Looks winnable. Anyway good luck.

How is he reminding you of Berdych?

He's a lefty with spinny shots and some exceptionally crappy movement. Physically he's also skinnier than Simon.

I don't know about you but last time I checked Berdych, he didn't meet those attributes.

At 19, JMDP won 4 tournaments in a row and had the longest winning streak (23 matches) of the year after Nadal.

Still, good to see someone finally breaking through. Best of luck to him.

Interesting to see how far he goes ! He has not made a ] yet but he,s clearly too strong for futures now . 9 titles out of 10 finals maybe not up to Challenger yet!

6 Australian Opens
1 French Open
3 Wimbledons
2 [COLOR=Cyan]US Opens[/

He has a good game serve,forehand,backhand are all consistent but no real strong shot so he has to work a lot for points.I'd compare him to Ferrer rather than Berdych.

Maybe it's due to quality of stream. But when i saw him, his speed was ok for big guy. Creepy movement is obvious for all teengaers, but generally his speed is Ok.
Skinny? Can't find him "skinny as Simon".
He created power from both wings, had not bad speed for 6'6 guy and nice serve. So, i find some similarity.
Anyway, want to see him more.

It's funny, because in juniors he was the bully, hitting the heaviest ball and dominating. In the seniors, he's having to work much harder and a different side to his game is coming to light.

1m98 he didn't look that tall to me in the streams considering this height his movement and shots are really good he just needs more power on the serve for free points.

Re: Jiri Vesely breaks top-200 and become the only teenager in top-200.

I've seen him play twice (once in juniors, once in Davis Cup) and I was thoroughly unimpressed on both occasions.

But his win-loss record in Futures this year speaks for itself

I saw him twice in indoor he won the first match then lost vs Brkic and today vs Lajovic on clay. Embarassing that i didn't notice how tall he is His matches are full of long exchanges and he's consistent from both wings but most of the time he can't hit through the opponent just draw an error.

Re: Jiri Vesely breaks top-200 and become the only teenager in top-200.

Actually looking at that pic it looks like he's gotten quite stronger. However he can't generate pace even if his life depended on it. Berdych at his age was crushing the ball like no tomorrow, on the other hand Vesely has to make Ferrerian efforts to get through opponents. His superiority at the junior level I reckon is due to him being able to change directions on shots pretty well and I suppose the lefty serve is always an advantage even though as a sole shot is far from being great.

From what I know of him it would take quite an improvement to see him actually making real strides in the game down the road. But who knows, maybe the improvement curve on these players is far steeper than I'm willing to predict.

He won't be the only one. Kyrgios will be close to this mark shortly. Already a challenger semi and a win.
