Todd Paul, a 22 year-old up-and coming American has jumped 1001 spots just this year! He was #1 in college and made it to the NCAA semi-finals in doubles.

That's exactly right. One day he will be top 100 and there wont be any forum for him and he will have a lot of fans. Then everyone would be screwed until December!

Todd Paul, in his FIRST full-time year as a pro, made his challenger debut in Yuba City, CA after several successful futures tourneys. In his 1st ever challenger, Todd made it to the quarter-finals! In this tournament, he beat 299th ranked and a top 350 player. This year, Todd also beat 214th ranked Michael Yani. Thanks for your votes!:worship:

Also, for some fun facts about Todd!! He was formerly coached by James Blake's coach Brian Barker. Also, he is great friends with James and practiced with the Davis Cup team when they played against Spain in 2007. The Brians said of him that he was the one holding serve in a practice doubles match. At Wake Forest University, Todd won the most singles matches (107) in school history. Todd also recently won a futures doubles title at the end of the year.

^It's never too late. Look at Julie Ditty on the women's side. After years of trying, she finally cracked the top100 at 29 years old in 2007.

Not at all. 22 years-old is young for a college player actually. In the shpae he's in, age won't affect him. If age is an issue, he will already have made his marks.

You can request a forum every four months, when the requests forum is opened.

We've got people in the top of the world who win tournaments who don't even have forums, who have active threads with hundreds of posts and more, I'm sorry but you can't expect the admins to decide to give this guy a forum.

Understood, but there are TONS of up-and-coming Americans that people talk about all the time. Thats what mine is for.

There aren't enough people talking about Todd to warrant an entire forum to him. Like those other up-and-coming Americans, I don't see the problem limiting discussions about him to a single thread. For the record, I do like Todd and would like to see him do well. :wavey:

After the great success of the Sam Querrey and Amer Delic forums, I doubt another American player will get a forum until he wins a slam.

Besides, when was the last time an American player, excluding James Blake, went to college and cracked the Top 50?

I voted yes, but after I did some research, since he never even had a thread until I made one, I don't think he's ready for a forum. Maybe in the next time if he's ready he will get one, but if he never had a thread then I see no purpose for a player forum(yet. if he lives up to his expectations, then he could get one). sorry, but it's the truth:shrug:
