Way more overhype overrating for this guy than Klizan and Klizan's better, bandwagon player of the year perhaps, MTF never ceases to amaze.

When the top guys retire I'm pretty sure he will be able to challenge tomug, raonic and muggison for slams...

I agree with this though. Much more interesting player to watch.

IMHO Jerzy is destined for great things and the Top 5 is where that will be in a year or two or less. Everybody can see what he is capable of from the point construction to the amazing hands and touch, to his movement and mental ability & fighting spirit. Not one of the young guys has as much upside as him and I believe he is the one to transition to the top and put pressures on the big 4. Fed is getting older and time is ticking, Rafas knees are a big question mark going forward, Novak has shown he isent invincible & Murray has not built on his terrific summer and looks vulnerable again. If you have doubts after the Ferrer match put things in perspective..7 matches to Ferrer's 4 leading into the final-plus JJ played mutiple tough physical, mentally draining matches which would take its toll on anyone, let alone someone playing in there first masters 1000 final.

Murray was quoted as saying after his match with JJ that it was difficult to get a read on what he was going to do next. I think this style along with his abiltites will cause great problems for everybody he faces in the year ahead and in time he will learn to tighten things up and play even smarter. Also he hardly has any significant points to defend except that 3rd round at Wimbledon and clay is not a liability as many ppl think, he has alot of experience on it and he will be fine there too. One member mentioned his style and how that would possibly effect his injury proneness going forward and that might be the one concern for me as well. I thought the same thing of Del Potro & Raonic when i saw them early in their careers. But that is an X-Factor no one can predict.. however both parents were volleyball players in Poland so he has good genes.

Tipsy's reaction said it all after one backhand winner in their match when tipsy imitated the shot that JJ just unbelievably made with a smile of respect and admiration..the look on his face appeared to say "where the hell did this guy come from"

There are rare moments in certain players careers when a switch goes off and that player morphs into what he was destined for-in Jerzys case that is greatness.



BTW..What would everybody consider to be a succesful, forward moving result at AO????

You can see his rare ability to stretch & hit a winner from anywhere at any angle. He can move easily to his backhand side which is a lesser strength.

Outside of serve winners, he doesn't need to hit the lines for winners.
Most top players have to hit lines because they don't hit as many winners from slices, serves & dropshots.

Hard to say. He has the talent, no doubt about that. I do think that he is a confidence player. He plays with such small margins for error. This makes him both dangerous and error-prone. Let's just see after next year, since he will be attending ATP tourney's without having to qualify now, we'll get to see much more of him with regards to consistency.

The most illogical and biased poster who makes laughable predictions all the time that turn out to be wrong is talking about sanity?

I do not put any stock into something that someone says who trolls the Challenger forums and disses every player who has a good run/tournament just because they are hating on said player and jealous of said player's success, simply because their own muggy faves are incapable of such results

So, I would gladly think the opposite of what you think any day

probably will get to the top-10 one day, Isner did it, and in the future the competition on top will get less good

He is seeded player in AO, right ? So normal result would be protect his place in draw and get into last 32. Every round better than that is a step forward.

But I think MTF overreacts like always. One good run doesnt mean anything .He is still same player who lost to Novikov in USO, lost to Cervantes 6 weeks ago...( I even dont know WhoTF is Inigo Cervantes ??!)

Miracles doesnt happen. I would be very surprised if he is in top 30 after next years Paris Masters.It doesnt work that easy, it takes lot of time and several setbacks to get permanent membership in Big Boys club . We have seen what happened to Gulbis after his RG 2008 run, what happened Tomic after his Wimbledon run etc. I think only youngster who got very fast into top 32 in last years( slam seed !) and is refusing to leave, is Raonic.

the question is not about "permanent membership" or I missed something.

To be something like a "permanent top-10", you need to be a top-5 material.

Are the current crop of players from Ferrer downwards top 10 players in 5 years time?

There's your answer.

He definitely has the ability and potential to make the top ten. It's whether or not he remains consistent throughout the year that will determine it or not. Time will tell...

Anyone who thinks so should check JJ's results last 6 months. They are not particularly impressive.
