Default Vasek Pospisil needs to decide to focus on singles or doubles

Vasek Pospisil just won the doubles title in Basel which is awesome! He made the doubles final in Beijing with Julian Benneteau too. But I think Vasek needs to make a decision focus on singles or doubles? Because if Vasek keeps on going deep in doubles events he might get tired or exhausted. This fall Vasek hasn't played badly in singles BUT he has had some brutal draws facing Djokovic, Murray, and Dimitrov early. Vasek has one more shot next week in Paris to boost his ranking. Unfortunately, Vasek starts out with Robredo and he could face Nishikori in the second round.

I see no harm in Vashy playing part-time in doubles

I agree! Maybe when he gets his ranking in singles back up, he can start to re-focus solely on singles then!

I don't think going deep in doubles is that exhausting for him, especially if he loses early in singles, getting a doubles titles sure beats going back home with nothing.

Melzer in his singles peak had also doubles success. Vasek can play doubles as long as he isn't in singles top 10.

There are lot's of players who can deal with playing singles and doubles easily. Vashy can deal with it if only prepare some smart schedule.

Default Re: Vasek Pospisil needs to decide to focus on singles or doubles

i dont see any problem with playing both. lets also be honest, most of his success in his career will come in doubles. he wont have a great singles career, he might snag one of the weaker 250's but doubles is where he'll have most of his success and whats going to get him more money so why not stick with both.

i mean, i think his singles career is going to be the way it is now. a hand full of deep runs but mostly early exits

Maybe you are right? I am still HOPING the doubles success will fuel the desire in singles. He is too talented to be ranked so low. But Vasek did reach his first ATP final in singles in Washington which was a 500 event. He also got to a Masters semifinal in Canada last year and he got to the semifinals of Chennai in India in January.

Vasek is only 24 and is in the top 50 in the world in singles despite being hurt and not winning a match for about half the season. I don't think he'll be quitting singles (WAY more money in it than doubles), nor should he.

Vasek has enough game to get in the top 15, just needs to be injury free next season. Such a talent!

Define "great." I still think he's capable of being a top 20 player at some point, I think he'd take that.

No he doesn't, he's one of those players that can have a good career in both.

Doubles doesn't take that much energy.

Well I hope Vasek can just stay healthy whomever is his trainer they need to work on that more. It just sucks the back injury messed up half his year. Still a decent year overall though over $1 million made already. Does anyone know if the 500 ATP doubles points count for the Basel victory for London? Do Vasek and Jack get a boost are they close to qualifying?
