That's a great goal, V.F. It's my personal goal for Pippo as well. Hopefully he can maintain a top 100 ranking though the season. At his advanced age, expecting a return to his previous level is asking a lot, but I do know he can be a decent clay-only player who hangs in the back end of the top 100 for a few seasons, we see many of these guys every year. Most likely will be playing a combo of ATP events with challengers, and what is most important for him is that he does well in the challengers, and can be respectable in ATP events.
I'm just so happy he's top 100 again. After that unfair suspension in 2009 after fighting so hard to get back in the top 100, when he was dealing with his knee problems, was just really great. Now he's made it back again, and let's hope he can stay there for some time now
