If he could learn how to at least return a phonecall then he might go places.

Bolelli has plenty of weapons, but lacks focus and work ethic. It's possible that he will crack that top 20 someday, but it's doubtful.

his ROS is ATROCIOUS, and as long as that continues, well, he won't be a top 20 :shrug:

He's rather slow too - but unlike a Soderling (who's movement is better anyway), he doesn't have a huge weapon or huge power or anything.

This would've been a better thread to start last year when he had some better results

Uzis, revolvers, AK-47s...the list is endless.

His dad owns a gun shop, you see.

Strong enough first serve, flattens the ball well on his forehand side (he actually generates abundant power on that stroke) and given time, his backhand isn't the weakness it's sometimes alleged to be.

Service consistency, obviously his return game and anticipation are things that need to be improved. As with many one handers, his backhand is also quite vulnerable when he's rushed.

Never. Of the young Italians I prefer Fognini

Bolelli is a very talented guy with a very good serve and big groundstrokes although the chances of him reaching the top 20 are very unlikely given the fact that he has too many weaknesses that can be expolited, and not just minor weaknesses very large ones such as his volleying skills and temperment. For one his return of serve is way too eratic, he needs to start giving himself a base in which to work from on the return, maybe just get the ball back into play and start to construct points better as opposed to ripping every return that he gets, it may be effective on a good day but generally gives his opponents way too many easy service games therefore pressuring his own service games. Also his mentality is a liability to any chance of him getting somewhere near the top of the game based on his inability to change tactics against different opponents, Because Bolelli is a guy that plays the same way against every player and therefore can get fairly predictable based on his lack of variety.

Bolelli has got a very flashy and exiting game and is talented, but his chances of getting to the top 20 are unlikely in my opinion unless he improves what i see as very significant weaknesses. If so he could get there however i do not see it at current. His main aim should be to try and get his first tile and get more consistancy into his game and let the rankings deal with themselves.
