I went to Newport today and back now (since both Ryan and Blake were both out) His first set was not too bad. He couldn't handle Isner's serving at all, and could only hold his serving game and left it to the tie-break. He played good enough to save all his serving games, but the tie-break was totally a disaster, shamefully 0-7.
In the second set he seemed to be influenced by the breakdown in tie-break and sometimes seems to lose the focus. He tried very hard to save his first serving game in the second set after some deuces, but Isner even served better in the second set and was also more aggressive in Ryan's serving game. Ryan could not hold his serving game and had not a chance to break Isner's. Totally a typical Ryan-John match.

What evidence do you have for making this assertion? He broke into the top 50 (peaked at 42) at the young age of 20. Players on the tour now are typically their best in their mid-20s. Why should we believe that for the next 10-15 years he is going to be ranked lower than 50? I'm not sure that Harrison is going to win slams, especially the longer it takes him to make a breakthrough, but certainly he, along with Jack Sock, Denis Kudla, and a few others, has the potential to be a top 10 or top 20 player.

I am sorry if my post upset you.

My opinion is based on historical data culminated from the last 6 months of his dismal performance on the ATP tour.

As far as your opinion that Jack Sock, Dennis Kudla and even Ryan Harrison have top 10 potential is problematic at best!

He's looking rather...thick in some of the pictures I've seen of him in Newport. I think he gets his build from his dad, who looks to have that football player body type.

I think playing some more challengers can get his confidence up, hopefully. I'm sure he can also improve his conditioning, but I don't know what his workouts are like so...

Yeah, he needs to play a couple of challengers. I wonder if he is going to have to play qualifying for the U.S. Open or if he'll get a wild card.

Considering the form he's been in the past few months, he should probably play qualifying. I'd rather see him qualify and lose in the 1r than get a wildcard and lose in the 1r. I think if he can pull off some wins in his other tournaments this summer, then maybe he'll get a wildcard. I just think there are others at this point more worthy of getting one.

I cannot imagine the usta giving RH a wildcard into the US Open especially if his ranking continues to slide....

He needs to get his ranking up by playing tournaments and doing well in them. I wish he was playing Bogota. His close loss to John Isner in the second round of the French (8-6 in the fifth) makes me think he's about ready to pull out of his slump. But that means making a run in Atlanta or Washington, and maybe in a couple of challengers before the U.S. Open. He has few points to defend for the rest of the year, so I think it's time for him to get his act back together. I'm really hoping Harrison and Sock can get into the top 20 or so within the next couple of years. But I'm not putting money on it.

I agree he need too at least play 3-4 challengers before the year over with I just hoping he get back into the top 100 before the year over I think he can crack the top 20 when he find his game & get outta this slump right now jack sock loook like he on his way doing it, but i think Ryan will still be in the mix with the new generation of players

Ryan Harrison is in Florida this week spending time on court with BG via the USTA. Hopefully that is extended. BG would be good for him

Good luck.

BG as in Brad Gilbert? Gilbert helped turn Agassi's career around. It would be very good if Harrison started working with him.

Let's go Ryan


Quote:
Ryan Harrison vs. Marinko Matosevic

Harrison and Matosevic will be going head-to-head for the first time in their careers when they collide in round one of the BB&T Atlanta Open on Monday afternoon. Both players are struggling but returning to a familiar scene in hopes of gaining some momentum at the start of the U.S. Open Series. Matosevic is 10-19 at the ATP level after retiring earlier this month in the Newport first round. The 73rd-ranked Australian is 1-2 lifetime in Atlanta main draws, having qualified and advanced to the second round in 2011.

Like Matosevic, Harrison has participated in the last two Atlanta installments and fell in the opening round last season. In 2011, though, the American reached the semifinals before succumbing to eventual champion Mardy Fish. Harrison currently finds himself in a slump that registers him down at No. 132 in the world. The 21-year-old qualified in Eastbourne and reached the last 16, but he has since lost three matches in row. Similar to most Americans, however, Harrison generally plays his best tennis on U.S. hard courts. That should be enough for the crowd favorite to take advantage of Matosevic’s questionable form.

Pick: Harrison in 3
