Who will join the 1st title club in 2007?

Time to see who will join the 1st title club of 2007? Don't worry if your choice is not there, the other option has been included and more than likely someone not listed will win an event next year.

First Title Winners for 2007

Code:
Player				Venue			Surface
Gilles Simon (FRA)		Marseille		Indoor Hard
Juan Monaco (ARG)		Buenos Aires		Clay
Ivo Karlovic (CRO)		Houston			Clay
Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER)	Munich			Clay
Steve Darcis (BEL)		Amersfoort			Clay

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Who will win their first title in 2007?

I think Vliegen and del Potro are the most likely to win a title next year based on their much improved performance.

Re: Who will win their first title in 2007?

I voted Del Potro with Querrey second.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

I haven't seen much of JMDP. I hope he qualifies for some major tournaments next year.

His ranking is already enough to gain direct entry into GS. Hopefully soon also into MS. This year he qualified for Madrid.

Damn. I didn't see Potro when I scanned it. Becker or he will be the first.

Re: Who will win their first title in 2007?

I hope Monaco finally does it.
And since Del Potro seems to be the most popular so far, I`ll be happy if he has a decent ATP season and keeps healthy.
It will be interesting to see how things go to Korolev. I haven´t see much of him yet.

Re: Who will win their first title in 2007?

JMDP looked really good, especially late in the season. Confidence level is on a roll too. Good luck.

Put another vote in for B. Becker, if he can keep his nerves under wraps. I like his style.

Re: Who will win their first title in 2007?

I like these threads.

I think:

Vliegen - currently the highest-ranked player without a title, already has two finals on different surfaces, and is constantly progressing.

Simon - he's relatively young, can play on both clay and hard, only thing is that he has some very strange results from time to time.

Del Potro, Korolev - two youngsters with an all-around game, I think they will both make a huge progress in 2007 and win their maiden title. This year we saw the players born in 1987 (Djokovic, Murray) winning their debut title, next year will be the turn of the players born in 1988.

Monaco - lacks consistency, having good results at a spaced trend - but when he's on a good week, he can make a good run and win a title - but obviously his chances outside clay are next to none.

Others: Mayer has a good chance, maybe Benneteau, Hajek...

Re: Who will win their first title in 2007?

I think Vliegen has a good shot in 07' due to his results this season. Given the right tourney and draw I think he has good shot. JMDP would be my second choice.

Why is B Becker on the poll
>>>...I thought B Becker won his 1st title at Queens or Wimbledon in 1985 ... Including him on the list is somewhat belated surely
