I'm probably being incredibly biased as a fan of his, but this is as sensible as I can get with predicting Kei.
Full uninterrupted season would be awesome, that's what I most want from Kei. If that happens, no doubt he can make huge strides in his game, results and ranking. Once he gets into the top 12, he will be able to do a lot of damage in draws since there'll be a 75% chance his projected R16 opponent will be either Ferrer, Berdych or Tsonga, who he likes playing against and never lost to at Slams or mandatory M1000 (overall 2-0 vs Jo, 3-1 vs Tomas, 2-1 vs Ferrer, 2-0 at Slams overall).

Slam semi and Masters title might be too big a breakthrough for 2013, but hardly impossible.

SF at one MS where he will get crashed by the almighty number one.

Not much. Probably another average year, even if he did have a full healthy season.

Weren't you claiming Kei would be a future Slam winner right after he won Tokyo? Ok, you did not mean it in 2013, but still if he wants to get that far it's time to stop being average and have a real breakthrough at least to become one of the, say, 10 best players in the world.

Hope he can improve, maybe have a big win over one of the top guys. And then he'll be ready for a slam in 2014/15

All depends on whether he beefs up his serve. If he continues with his petit delivery, I don't see him improving much. If he comes out blazing in 2013 with a stout serve, I can see him knocking on the door of the top 10 throughout the year.

If he manages to beef up his serve, he will make it to the top 8 easily. He already beats Ferrer, Berdych and Tsonga more often than not while virtually getting no free points on serve. If he could improve his serve to a decent level, he'd be a much stronger contender for sure.
