Wolmarans, Aubone or this Aussie are just players from futures' level, but that's not the most important thing - 14 yo kid is dominating them with offensive mindset, huge forehand, versatility and maturity. Whittington won 5 games today and if in first set with 1-4 and 30-30 umpire wouldn't make mistake by overrule Aliassime's lob, score probably would look something like 16 26.
It's ridiculous how completely he exposed Whittington tonight considering his age.
Who knows how his career progresses over the next few years as it's a long and hard road to the ATP, but if his drive to succeed comes close to matching his very evident talent, this kid could be something really special.
Twitter says he's the youngest player with win on Challenger MD level. Any confirmation?
The best thing about him is the fact he doesn't have any significant weakness in his fundamentals. BH? Good. Forehand? Great. Volley? As good as his backhand. Movement? Footwork? Great - just watch first action of third game in 2nd set and see how fast he's on his feet RIGHT NOW. Return? Very natural. Regularity? Having all these things you have to have regularity. That's why he's having this fast transition to men's game.
