Inspite of his height where he could had taken advantage of his serve he never managed to make any progress on hard court. The only improve that I found on his game is that he is serving a bit better and is attacking the ball quite more often. That is giving some results on clay but not on hard courts yet. His tennis is OK for CH tour but I don´t see him doing any damage on ATP level players yet.

His schedule organization is really lousy aswell. He didn´t write down for Santiago´s ATP where he defends QF pounts coming from quallies (57) and could had been 2nd on the alternate list (it seems that Riba is not going to play there who is the first alternate). I find it strange that he might decide to play there.
I know, i've been following his career for some years now too. Definitely was one of the many that thought he was going to make the breakthrough way earlier but, like you said, he's having trouble making his next big step forward (top 100). I think footwork and overall speed are his main weaknesses for sure but, with his power from the baseline (and how easily he generates it) + serve, IMO he is definitely ATP talent. Did you watch his match against Tipsarevic last year? A casual, non tennis fan, wouldn't have been able to tell who was the top 10 player! I'm seriously hoping he finally makes the remaining adjustments to his game in order to keep climbing up and finally leave the challengers behind. You are spot on, too, with what you say about his scheduling it's been awful for at least a couple of seasons and I also addressed it in a thread some months ago, it's crazy how much of an impact it can have in a player's career.

Don't care for Delbonis, but I don't think I'll ever be devastated over an Odesnik loss.

He has no offensive skills whatsoever, take a look at him on any faster surface. All of his matches played on hard court are simply hilarious. When his consistency is on there he has nothing else. Also his second serve is attack-prone even though he improved it in the last season.

Gastao and Pedro w.o. in a doubles SF. How dumb they can be! It wasnt bad money for them, if they won the tournament. And only 2 matches to play. It would worth the shot, since they won other 2 matches to get there. Again, dumb move...
