what improvements should he make ?

his strenghts are forehand , speed and generaly versatile and aggressive style of play but what are his weakness that he should improve to become a top player?

One issue that is obvious is strength and maybe to bulk up a little more and that comes with time. I am not sure if it's related to the strengts but he also should improve his return of serve. Sometimes he looks very awkward with that and he generaly struggles against big servers

Re: what improvements should he make ?

i think he should improve his strenght....cause usually he struggles when he plays long matches....
match against gonzales was very good, he had good serve, return, even voleys as i remember - he won all of the net points so....voley is not problem but he lacks in confidence when he is in about to go there and finish the point...he has great serve but not that constant....he will improve it with time...i think he is complete player....he can use every shot....

That isn't really strength, but fitness. And that was something I thought of too.

Re: what improvements should he make ?

When I watched that match against Nadal he just seemed very perplexed with his serve which was all spin but not that hard or fast. Granted he was injured .
What about his backhand? It's two handed and is solid but is it his weapon or weakness?

I wouldn't say his dropshot's a weakness. His volleys definitely are though.
