Ryan Slump just can't end Hopefully he get a much better draw at Eastbourne but I think he need too play one or two many three more Challenger before the season over Also I think something gotta change as well I know his father his coach but I think he need too bring in another coach just too give him new ideal & hear another voice & help him improve. But Is the field in Eastbourne packed with big names ?

Does he not see or acknowledge the downward spiral he is taking?? Definitely out of Top 100 next week, getting passed up by the other up and coming Americans.

^ i Think he is worried and hoping too get outta this slump I like the way he play at RG when he played Isner I don't know why he can't play like that all the time anyway there not alot Americans coming out too really pass him up be sides Jack Sock & his Brother Christian Harrison But there alot of Young & upcoming player coming out I do believe Ryan going have too make so change too get back in the mix Whether It an Racquet Change or getting an New Coach but I think he will eventually start winning again and get back in the mix with the player like Dimitrov, Tomic & Raonic

I will say it again. It is hard for Ryan to maintain his aggressiveness on a regular basis b/c of his weak groundies/techniques. The energy he put in his shots doesn't equate to the same amount of pace generated by other players with the same input. At slams, he put extra energy and effort in his matches. In regular tournaments, he usually get pushed around a lot by better ballstriker and somehow ended up winning several of those matches (thanks to his competitive fighting spirit and serve).

To be honest, I can also see Johnson, Williams, and Kudla surpassed him in a couple of years unless Ryan developed some type of offensive weapon. Johnson and Williams may not be as well rounded or as experienced as Ryan at this stage (went the college route), but they have a go-to-shot (forehand) and have offensive game. They also have plenty of room for improvements whereas Ryan's game is pretty developed in comparison. Kudla is just as well rounded as Ryan, but he is a much much better ballstriker. His techniques, off both wings, are more technically correct than Ryan's (allowing him to be consistently aggressive as you can see in their last encounter). Even Christian is a better ballstriker than Ryan. Maybe he should try copying Gulbis forehand; ugly, but effective

^ I Guess But I think He Can Develop an Weapon like u said & in improve as well I guess time will tell, I agree I think his serve is his biggest Weapon so far but to me IMO he still should be no where near rank where he at with his game style Hopefully he could get outta this slump soon, as well as improving on his game I not saying he could have a game like an Roddick but he could be better he does have potential.

Just for fun, this is how I rate them after watching them at different levels of tournaments in the last 12 months. Of course, my opinions can change in the next 12 months. I also have thoughts on their personality and looks, but I'll just keep it tennis related

Forehand

Sock > Johnson > Williams > Harrison = Kudla

Backhand
Kudla > Harrison > Williams > Sock > Johnson

Aggressiveness
Sock > Johnson > Williams = Kudla > Harrison

Power
Sock > Johnson > Williams > Harrison > Kudla

Fundamentals
Kudla > Harrison = Williams > Johnson > Sock

Variety
Kudla = Harrison > Williams > Johnson > Sock

Netgame
Harrison = Kudla = Sock = Johnson > Williams

Serve & Volley
Harrison = Sock = Johnson > Kudla > Williams

Slices
Harrison > Kudla > Williams = Johnson > Sock

Dropshots
Kudla > Williams > Harrison > Johnson > Sock

Point Construction
Kudla > Harrison > Williams = Johnson > Sock

Tennis Smarts
Harrison = Kudla > Williams = Johnson > Sock

Athleticism
Johnson = Harrison > Sock > Williams = Kudla

Defense
Harrison > Johnson > Kudla > Williams = Sock

Mental Toughness (Clutchness)
Harrison = Johnson > Sock > Williams = Kudla

Most likely to give up when things are not going well
Williams > Sock > Johnson = Kudla = Harrison

Court Calmness

Johnson = Kudla > Sock > Harrison > Williams

Likely to get penalized
Williams > Harrison > Sock > Johnson = Kudla

Racket Smashes
Williams > Harrison > Sock = Johnson = Kudla (have never seen smashes from Sock, Johnson, or Kudla)

Fitness
Harrison = Kudla > Johnson > Williams > Sock

Room for Improvements
Sock > Johnson > Williams > Harrison > Kudla

Gives me the most headaches
Williams > Sock = Harrison > Kudla = Johnson

I honestly i don't even wanna bother with him anymore. At this point, rock bottom can only be a blessing for him.
