BTW I said slams, but I meant to say Masters, obviously.

It would be D-Pot 2nd biggest achievment of his carreer. While in WTF he doesn't stand much of a chance, tbh. IF it was a tank (and I'm pretty sure it wasn't) it was the dumbest tank of history, IMO.

US Open is his favourite tournament and we know the US have a lot of tanks.

This one is pretty straightforward to me.

The Australian Open courts are slow and higher bouncing, which undoubtedly will hurt the tall guy the most. He will be unable to serve and return nearly as well as he does on faster courts.

He will be a decent grass player, but I cant see him being anything special. His volley skills arent that good.

Not sure how he will be in the clay season. Theoretically he should be fine, but he might get crushed by any good clay courter.
Slower and high bouncing will only help big guys.

Slow, so it gives the ponderous big guys time to actually get to the ball, and wind up for a massive groundstroke. High bouncing helps them, cuz it means balls sit up nicely in their wheelhouse.

He's already done an R3 so its not too much of a long shot to say he'll make second week at some point in his career...unless he becomes a R4 gasquetbot.

He's already 22 and not getting any younger. Let's not kid ourselves here.

i think if he reaches 3rd round at the AO, it's a success

can't see him achieving much until the smaller european clay events in may
