Yeah, he's strong for 20, but not strong compared to most other players, has to improve stamina/cardio, not just muscles.

Seems to be that experienced taught a lesson to Harrison. Robredo last week in Brisbane and Benneteau now in Sydney. I hope that Benneteau can win his first ATP title here.

I read that Harrison talks with Roddick almost daily and I don't think that is a good thing.
what happened with the kid in your ava btw? any idea?

About Ryan - really disapointed, it felt like he has potential, but he's not progressing, just staying at the same level for now too long.

I hope for Benne's first tittle, finally. The guy deserves it.

Harrison needs help developing his ground game.
This is not true regarding the earlier (and more successful) part of his career.

Nishikori doesn't look any stronger than him and can play in side the baseline.

Better to wait 2 weeks before making such a call. Tomic has a lot of ranking points at risk with the Aust Open so I would guess if Tomic does not deliver in the next 2 weeks he will be lowest ranked of the three. If Tomic does deliver on the other hand he could be the highest, so for the sake of two weeks we can get a real idea of where the three really stand.

Minimal expectations for the year, but I'm sure the arrogance and overconfidence will be there.

I loved those shanks today and without even letting the ball land, he goes, "towel now."

It's sad that his 2010 was better than 2011, if he doesn't do better this year he'll end up like Donald Young.
