Dominik has said that he has certain goals to achieve in 2009, and if he doesn't achieve them he will retire at the end of the year. He did not say what the goals were but hopefully he will achieve them.
He has already made a great start to the year winning the Hopman Cup, defeating Blake and Safin and narrowly losing to Hewitt.
If he keeps up his form he should easily make the top 100. He is playing Auckland vs Kohlschreiber now, I actually hope he will lose so he can make it to the Australian Open quallies where he could do some damage.
