Even though he tends to stop giving his best after a set-loss, he is naturally a bad match-up for most players - including Djokovic. Top twenty should be a realistic goal for this season, considering he is not defending any points.
Judging from the attitude he's displaying atm.....I'd say top 30 by year end is more realistic.....unless he picks up his act and plays to what we all know he is capable of
Also I don't think he is naturally a bad match up of most guys....Gasquet is more of a bad one in particular IMO because he loves to use short angles so much as opposed to keeping the ball deeper in the court which B-nard prefers.
