Of course, I am very happy to see journeymen winning matches at the ATP level. But I was genuinely curious whether people believe he has potential, because I haven't seen any.
I don't think he has enough power in his game to get into the top 100. Of course that's why I thought he wouldn't do as well as he has already. He's extremely smart on court and uses some great angles, good return of serve. But he does get a bit tight in close moments (based on his college play). I'm pulling for him for sure, would be cool to say I once personally knew a top 100 ATP pro.
what's cool to see is how he is doing better than several guys that bested him in college. Guys like Jarmere Jenkins, Jaime Pulgar-Garcia, Jose Hernandez-Fernandez, Henrique Cunha, Nathan Pasha all got the better of Yannick in college matches and yet yannick has zoomed past them.
