Over here in England the question arised, which Italian player they believed has the ability to be top 20 and they said Bolelli, but I think Starace has a really solid game, if only he could win a few more of these close matches.
his hard court record is pretty bad, you hardly can make top 20 with clay courts only, unless you do well at rg and the masters and so far potito hasnt gone deep in them
