There were some horrendous shot choices during big points, he HAS to do something about that, or he's got no chance at all against Murray...

what’s abundantly clear is that doyle is completely reworking harrison’s game to avoid the 2h bh altogether by running around it and/or defensively slicing. unfortunately, there’s no way he can he reach the highest echelon of the game with such a glaring weakness. eventually the tour will adapt and expose him. in the meantime, his desire, speed and stamina will keep him competitive.

Just another self-loathing American, another troll, or do you have something in particular against Harrison?

If anything, Harrison has been a disappointment thus far, as many expected him to be where Tomic is now based upon his play and obvious talent at 15 years old.

He had quite a few backhand winners, I'm not sure what you are talking about. Most players with better forehands will run around their backhand when given a chance. See Fed, Nadal, Tsonga etc.

His two-hander is not bad though. I might even say it is good. It's not as if his forehand is loads better than his backhand. All that being the case, I don't get this tactic, so I hope you're wrong.

BTW, I had no idea Harrison's serve was that big. He was regularly hitting 130. I hope he continues improving. He has got game. He is missing one big weapon though, so he'll have to be awfully well-rounded to be a Grand Slam threat.

his 2h bh is fundamentally flawed and his fh and serve simply aren't enough to compensate. he'll be decent player, but the prospects of him seriously contending for or winning a major at any point in his career remain at 0%.

Yeah I didn't get that comment either. It's not like a win over Troicki is a breakthrough for him. The main thing now is that he's starting to show some consistency as far as the level of players he beats, and that consistency will help get his ranking up to a level that is better representative of his true capabilities.

As they do for Raonic, and most players actually.

I disagree. You're right that there is not one particular outstanding facet to his game, but the flip side is that he does everything really well. Better than average forehand, good backhand, better than average volley, serves in the 130's, etc. It will all have to come together for him to be a threat at the majors. Isner made it to #11 with much less talent but with two big weapons. I think Harrison can do a lot more with the spread of talent he has.

Seems like you are going on the assumption that a young player can't improve

Oh Ryan I love you so much!!!! He is so gorgeous! I have to say I don't understand why that poster is so down on Ryan. Ryan Harrison, Ryan Sweeting and Donald Young are pretty much our only good young players.

raonic will definitely be a threat at majors with all his weapons, and i predict he'll bring gs glory to canada before it's all said and done. and if tomic ever gets his head screwed on straight, he'll be another force to reckon with at slams in the upcoming years.

if the issues are addressed, absolutely yes. but if the weaknesses are concealed in pursuit of short-term goals, then no.
