The question is only when. In 6 or in 8 years?

honestly I think he probably can too. moves great for his size, tons of power, great groundstrokes overall, great serve

he's like an entirely different player from this season compared to last

definitely when looking at the upcoming generations he'll have his chances. maybe at the US Open?

cute picture btw hahaha

He's only 22. He has plenty of time ahead. The forehand is sublime, the serve is okay but really inconsistent, but the backhand :help:

Jack Sock will avoid Djokovic CYGS in US OPEN 2015 SF. Then he will claim the title in the final against Isner.

Great post. I think he can win US Open or RG one day.

With complete lack of backhand ?? no..
And most of backhandless players at least have a good slice, but his slice is also shit as hell

Reminds me a bit of Madison Keys, huge American hitter, but streaky, inconsistent and a bit brainless.
Losing to the likes of Lajovic is just proof of that.
That being said, yeah he'll prolly be Top 10 in a couple of years, make a couple of slam SFs, Fs and then we'll go from there.

I don't see it. His backhand isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be, but his lack of confidence in it leads to too many ill-advised attempts to run around, and players above a certain level can consistently take advantage of his compromised positioning. Seemingly dozens of times today, he would try to run around, not quite get in position to do damage with the forehand, then be caught out when Nadal angled the ball to the open court. It's improbable that he could ever get through multiple top players employing that style.

It is.

It was embarrassing against the great Rogie in Indian Wells.
