How far can he go in this tournament considering the field is pretty average. mostly clay court players. His record is 2-1 on grass losing in the qualifiers last year in Wimbledon.
Record:
Q1 Lukas Rosol (CZE) 85 W 3-6, 6-3, 6-3
Q2 Uladzimir Ignatik (BLR) 160 W 3-6, 6-1, 7-5
Q3 Igor Sijsling (NED) 188 L 6-7(7), 3-6, 6-4, 5-7

It's not. He lost in the Wimbledon qualifier last year.

A lot will depend on his draw. As of now, the field consists of Ferrer, Troitski, Haase, Melzer, Falla, Ferrero ... So I don't think the field is average as the OP claims. If he gets to the QF, it would be great. Anything more would be cream.

Expectations shouldn't be too high for him here. As we all know the confirmation of a good run is always very difficult, not to mention he isn't really an experienced grass court player. Good to get some grass play before Wimbledon, smart move. I am very curious what he Will do here.

Goffin has an all-court game, in my opinion, and I think he could win a match or two.

If you are worried about Gifitis do NOT go over to the women's equivalent of this site.

Not a great record on the surface in juniors, by the way: 5-3.

Wins over Kaczynski, Netuschil, Easton, Struff, Wachiramanowong.
Losses to Rufin, J. Jenkins and Thomas.

He plays well in grass. A quarter final there seems really possible if he can pull his best game.

How possibly people hate on this guy? :confused: He is nice and playing good tennis. Good luck with the WC opportunity.

I still cannot decide if I love or hate you, Hian :lol:
Depends who he draws. If he gets Ferrer or Ferrero, he´s screwed, but if he draws a local WC or something he could win

Good choice for a WC, young guy who had some media attention recently, probably got some potential, is from Belgium which we like in Holland.

I mean if he will become a top30 player in his career it would be nice if comes to 's Hertogenbosch regular, so try and make him feel at home there.

The Kid is overated, taking a set off Fed on clay is so easy these days.
