In that sense, I think Rhyne's upside is higher than Harrison's because I just don't see any pure weapons in Harrison's game. And definitely Johnson, who is steady but not really spectacular.

Jack Sock is probably the best athlete of the bunch, and so I think he's got the highest upside.
In my opinion, Sock has the best forehand (most power), Johnson is the most athletic (great defense/ best mover), and Rhyne the more complete player. Thank goodness, his backhand doesn't suck like Sock's and Johnson's. I also think Rhyne has a better upside than Harrison. Fundamentally, Rhyne can do everything that Harrison can do and plus he has better groundies, forehand, and drop-shot. Harrison has better serve, defensive skill, and net-game though, and is generally a better competitor.

Rhyne is in Memphis so he probably got some type of wildcard.

Edit: he was given a qualifying wildcard, but got in directly anyway.

Great comeback win 26 61 62, can't remember the last time he came back from a set down...progress Final qualifying round against Munoz-De La Nava. Good luck.

Edit: forgot about the Dancevic match, but comeback wins are still pretty rare for him.

76(4) 64, into the maindraw would be interesting if Rhyne draws Johnson.

Default Johnson, Williams renew NCAA rivalry in Memphis

http://tenngrand.com/2013/02/18/john...ry-in-memphis/

Quote:
Former college standouts Steve Johnson and Rhyne Williams are going head-to-head for the first time at an ATP event on Monday in Memphis. Both in-form Americans are making a steady push for direct entry into future Grand Slams and appearances in the Top 100. So, who will snag a big win at this 500-point event?

Ricky: Johnson and Williams will be squaring off for the second time at the professional level when they do battle in round one of the U.S. National Indoor Tennis Championships on Monday. They faced each other last fall at the Charlottesville Challenger (also on an indoor hard court), where Williams prevailed 4-6, 6-4, 6-4. Two of the nation’s best college players in recent seasons, they also collided twice in individual competitions. Williams won 1-6, 6-1, 6-4 for the 2010 indoor title before Johnson got revenge with a 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 victory to capture the 2011 National Championship.

Both men are off to a good start to their pro careers. Johnson qualified for the Australian Open before losing to Nicolas Almagro in five sets and he beat Ivo Karlovic last week in San Jose. Williams won the USTA’s wild card into Melbourne before falling to Florian Mayer in five. The world No. 159 (as of Sunday) already had a good weekend in Memphis, qualifying for the main draw thanks to defeats of Tim Smyczek and Daniel Munoz-De La Nava. As their past history and Williams’ recent results suggest, the former Tennessee Volunteer loves the fast conditions that an indoor setting provides. Johnson doesn’t mind them, but he likes to have more time to set up with his huge forehand and he wants to get as much kick as possible with his heavy-topspin serve. Williams seems to be playing just a little bit too well right now for Johnson to overcome his slight surface disadvantage......read more

kidbourbon, apparently Romi Cvitkovic got us beat when it comes to showing support for Rhyne

Likely Dolgopolov. Rhyne is playing really well right now. An upset in the second round isn't out of the question.

Is there any youtube footage of the Williams/Johnson match?

Don't think so, they streamed only the women's matches yesterday

Btw, enjoyed your piece on RockyTopTalk. Your description of Alexandr Dolgopolov made me laugh so hard
