I've always thought Harrison looked pretty strong from the upper body...

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

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

Nothing wrong with his body strength, it's the brain muscle that's weak.

Agree. He worked out a lot last year and probably is the strongest among players in his age (comparing to Dimitrov, Tomic, Stebe, or a little older Raonic, Nishikori). Look at his neck....

He has a lot to be improved but his body strength is not the priority.

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

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.

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.

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