Re: Tomic's ranking in a years time?
Depends what schedule he undertakes.
If he were to play a full year he can get top 200 but I don't think he will get top 100. His results overseas at the professional level have been disappointing except for Wimbledon where he drew two grasscourt mugs in qualies. Even looking at his results in Australia in the few tournaments he played he lost in straights to Dolgopolov and the also lost to Lindahl and Ebden in the wildcard playoff. The exho wins and the second round at Aus Open looks good but there are a heap of question marks surrounding it. Plus his clay court tennis probably isn't up to scratch so he won't be able to benefit from the large amount of clay court challengers.
I think it's unfair of the media especially at such a young age to be placing such a big expectation on him for this year based on a handful of senior results and his junior results. Top 100 won't be a problem for him in a few years but by next year. I don't think so.
