Peter is playing better atm but he's played way too much lately so I'm expecting Vasek to win that

Default Re: Vasek Pospisil

I predicted Vasek's season this year.. he'll never be more than a journeyman. I was right.

I also called him not qualifying for the aussie open. People don't like my negativity, but they all know it's because I'm right..

Listen.. I want Vasek to do well.. I really do, I'm a fan! but you have to admit that his start to the season hasn't been the best, and that Vasek's form isn't that good at the moment. I knew he wouldn't qualify for the Australian Open.. I was right.

I don't remember you predicting him not to qualify actually. You can look at his start to the season another way too, he has gone from ranked 119 at the start of the season to a career high of 111 as of tomorrow morning. Yes, we would like better but being a baby and telling everyone you told us he would struggle makes you look like a clown when he is currently at his career high ranking.

but this doesnt mean that he will play like this or struggle like this for the rest of his career

I agree in a sense that i think people got a little over excited about vasek when he qualified and made the US second round last year. I think he'll have a career high around where frank's was.I dont think he'll be anywhere near as good as milos is but he'll still have a respectable career

I dont think you can use this bad start to the season as evidence that he will do nothing. Actually if you remember he started well in qualifying for chennai but then he got routined by andi beck in a match he was never really in and its been downhill since then

he is close to the top 100 now but i really dont think he's ready for that at this point, i think it diguises where his real level is.

I know.. I was banned before I managed to say that.. lol. But I was thinking it! I had a bad feeling before the qualifiers that he would lose.

Well.. a career high ranking is good, but it doesn't really mean that much, it just means that he's sucked less than some other players in the rankings.

Then again.. I do hope he'll turn it around.. I'm not losing hope, but he's having a bad period these days.. no denying that. I wonder what can be done about it.. changing coach maybe? Who is his coach these days? It seems like he's very mentally weak too.. losing all the big points. Maybe a sports psychologist could help? Who knows.. he needs to be more consistent though. He really needs to do something to improve.

Great post! I pretty much agree with everything you said here Both with where his level is now and what he's capable at in the future. I agree that he's not ready for top 100 yet.. he is not consistent enough, and quite frankly.. he doesn't deserve it, not like he's playing these days. I think a career high around Frank sounds like a good bet I think top 50 is the best we can wish for, but that is far, far ahead in the future. He's not even ready to get into the top 100 yet, so it will probably take a couple of years at least until he reaches that level.

so what you're saying is you told us he wouldn't qualify for the AO, but you didn't really tell us because you were banned?

nobody here expects Vasek to be the next Federer. Nobody here said he would be career top 10, but he's better than the level he's currently playing at. Most of us here think he'll be lucky to make the top 25. I expect him to level off at 50 once he gets there and stay there for most of his career.

Don't make 10 predictions, come here when you get one right, tell us you were right when you never really told us in the first place. Get lost

Fine.. I didn't say it.. I was going to say he wouldn't manage to qualify, but then I got banned. I will be more vocal in my predictions from now on

I'm glad you're realistic when it comes to Vasek. We all want him to do well. I'm a fan, and I obviously want him to do well.. but the fact is that he's kinda in a slump these days. I have no doubt in my mind that he's better than what he's showing us right now, but I also think he was overhyped in here.. some people basically thought he was the next Federer, when the fact is that he isn't even the new Milos. He'll never reach 25 in the world like Milos did, he'd be lucky to get a career high at 50 or better, that's where I think he'll land eventually, and where his potential is at, and I think he should be happy with that.

I was worried too. Phew... Have to say he was a bit lucky or in other words super efficient on return. In both winning sets, he won less pts on return than Bohli did. 6-3(7-8), 2-6(6-15), 6-4(5-8)

Tomorrow, Peliwo Wish there was a live stream. :/
