2013

What do you all think Paulo can do in 2013? I think he can maintain a top 50 ranking. I also believe he has a chance to play Davis Cup. The first tie is on Clay and he showed in 2012 he can still play well on the surface. Joe Tsonga and Gilles Simon are the top 2 players but neither has clay as their best surface. Richard Gasquet hasn't done much in Davis Cup. Monfils is questionable after an injury filled 2012. Paulo has an outside shot to be chosed to play on Clay.

Re: 2013

Paulo just pull out Brisbane for personal reason... Hope his family is well..
I think for 2013 he wants to reach more emotionnal matches.
He wan reach top 20 for me but he has to listen to his body not to have another injury!

Merry christmas to everybody !

Re: 2013

Looking forward to seeing Paulo again in Melbourne.

I think as long as he can remain healthy, then top 30 this year and maybe a little higher would be a good year. Would really like to see him win another trophy. As for Davis Cup, I think it's unlikely he'll get picked for it but would love to see it. Always emotional watching him play for his country.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Re: 2013

I watched the Del Petro match via livesream from Kooyong. I have to say PHM looked quite good in the second and third sets. His backhand was great, both down the line and cross court. His forehand was better than last year. His service percentage was low, but his second serve was solid. He made Del Potro run alot. I know it was an exhibition match but it appeared Del Potro was trying. I think PHM's form is encouraging. I know he did quite well in the French league play in Nov. and Dec. He seems to have kept good form.

He post on his twitter that his wife got his first chimiotherapy and that it went well. Best wishes to them during that tough period

Re: 2013

he's playing this week at the challenger of Heilbronn where he started last year! He will play on Tuesday Lajovic and then probably Gulbis!
Hope he's fine and wish him and Quiterie the best...

Re: 2013

Still no win on main tour this year. He says he's not ready physically and can't win.
