After lost in QF Dolgo will be No. 32 in the new ranking of January 31. His Latin America tour (Costa Do Sauipe, Brazil since Feb 7, Buenos Aires, Argentina since Feb 14 and Acapulco, Mexico since Feb 21) will show the further trend...

Once before you give your 2 cents, try to check some facts, he destroyed the CH circuit playing on nothing else than clay, the red dirt is his natural surface, thats why it was only logical for him to play the south american clay swing.....

Until very recently he'd have said clay is his best surface. Gave Nadal a really good match in Madrid, that's the first time he signalled real top level ability.

Additionally. From Dolgo's interview after match with Soederling:

ALEXANDR DOLGOPOLOV: Well, I'm more comfortable on clay because still sometimes my legs hurt, and I don't want to be staying on hard too much. I'm used to clay more. I think I can do good results there.

Default Re: Will Dolgopolov reach top 20 this year?

If Dolgo can continue to fine tune his game then top 20 is achievable. Given that he favours clay, we could perhaps see the next realistic challenger on the clay circuit. Roland Garros will be interesting with Rafa/Soderling/Federer/Berdych in the mix.

He's clearly going to reach top 20 by the end of the year. He'll be challenging for London in 2012 imo. The WTF that is, not Olympics ha.

he's 35 or so and so few points to defend, he could make some damages in Indian Wells and Miami.

i don't know i just wrote what i saw from his game in this tournament........his backhand is not a solid shot yet........he is either directing the ball off that wing or flattening out the stroke.......on clay he needs to drive a lot of balls with spin.......he is also making a lot of errors when switching from that topspin forehand cc to a flat one........we will see what he brings to the clay court season this season........

Default Re: Will Dolgopolov reach top 20 this year?

If you look on his official 953 ranking points (of January 10), you could see that Dolgo work out:
443 points on clay courts
335 points on hard courts (245 outdoors and 90 indoors)
135 points on grass courts
40 points on carpet

Yes, I could see him reaching top 20 by the end of the year. It will be interesting to see how much damage he does during the clay season. Hopefully, he can also make deep runs in the other slams.
