he deserves his own thread now
will be ranked inside top 200 next week
reached his first challenger sf this week in eckental defeating seifert, nedovyesov and dustov; bemelmans next. tough opponent.
next tournaments: ortisei if he can enter directly and maybe helsinki in the last week
he played college tennis for auburn in alabama
he has a huge serve and a big forehand, nice attacking game
i guess he is playing on his best surface right now although he can play decent tennis on clay, played a lot of clay tournaments for his local club ...
let us hope he will continue next year where his 2013 season ends...maybe going to australia...
