I think he will improve but I doubt his footwork will ever be great enough for modern tennis, his legs look too long, he can't lean enough to play his shots.
I didn't notice exactly in the end of the match : seemingly he's the same size as Tsonga, isn't he, 1.88 m ? or a little bit more 1.90 m ?

His shots are delightful to my eyes however, they are very beautiful, it's already something more than Gulbis

Anyway he doesn't have the game to be a "brainless ball basher" and McNamara doesn't raise him to play this way : I read that once they were watching Bozoljac and McNamara told him "this isn't tennis"

Hint to Dimitrov's fans: do you know where from all these haters come? From hype-"Future King"-threads you creating. It's annoying. Make hype - get hate. Nobody hates Filip Krajinovic f.e.

I had an impression they are the same height so 187 or 188 cm.

You may have a point, but as Oscar Wilde said, "the only thing worse than being talked about, is NOT being talked about Maybe it's the same with sports "hate"

And that is what i hate . clowns like you pretend to be mister "I know it all" and actually have no idea what they are talking about. I bet "haven't seen him play much to be honest" means "I haven't seen him play at all". I am sure that 90% of the people bashing Grigor are like you and haven't even seen him play on tv let alone live like the OP has.

yes, I had the same (Tsonga is this height on the ATP website but he looks nearer to 1.90m to me),

it's not as tall as it looks by the way he doesn't look comfortable with it.

It seems it doesn't fit his game.

For instance he doesn't play his backhand like Youzhny who's so good at playing a high one-handed backhand with his high preparation. He would need to have small legs like Gasquet

At one time Gasquet and Gulbis were considered the "future" too. We know what happened.

I don't like players height on ATP because it seems that conversion is from feet into meters, IMO should be otherwise to get more adequate dimensions

Yeah, we know.

And lot of people said last year Melzer will be never top 10 player and he was last week.

Will be suprise for you if Grigor will play MUCH better and he will be really good player.

yes they do this way, the height is always 1.85, 1.87 or 1.90, never 1.86 or 1.88

but also I think there are a few mistakes

Also never 191, 192, 194, 195...

I know that Moya and Safin's heights are ridiculous. Moya "is" 190, Safin 193 cm, but in the pictures where they are standing close to each other, Safin is considerably taller. Probably Moya is 188, Safin 195.
