NOT A DAMN CHANCE!!!!! Odesnik is playing at a level that he has never played at before. He is moving like a top 20 player and is making EVERYONE who beats him work their ass off for it. You cannot name one player (other than Felix Mantilla in Europe) who has beaten Odesnik in str8 sets in the past 2 or 3 months. He is beating almost every top 100 player that he has faced this past summer, and is no longer a walkover for ANYONE!!! (except maybe Fed, but he is another story). If he beats Dancevic, I can GARUANTEE that Gasquet will have nothing less than a VERY TOUGH match ahead of him.
Before the year is out Odesnik WILL be in the top 100, his game is there and so is his movement, its just a matter of time now. Also, keep in mind that Odesnik is having these results and improvements (other than this week and last week) on RED clay. I think that he is the best American on clay WITHOUT A DOUBT!!
