Another great win for Vasek, who would probably be favoured against about half of the top 30 on indoor hard right now.

Playing some of the best tennis of his career, so hopefully he can remain injury-free and have a nice swing at IW and Miami.

Up to 89 in the live rankings, 82-83 if he wins his next match.

He only had 360 total points in all of 2019 (thanks to injury time off) and he's already at 289 in 2020. Nowhere to go, but up. He didn't even play his first match until Wimbledon last year, so it's all good until the grass season starts.

Good win for Vasek. Hurkacz on the other hand - another proof that he’s a non-factor, sadly. At least for now.

Indeed. Hopefully top 50 beckons if he can keep his form up.

Damn, Vasek is playing some good tennis. Has hardly any points to defend this season so we could see a pretty big rise up the rankings easily.

Well , non factor no IMO, in this case just an ascending tall baseline player running into a getting back to normal hot player of the month( barring monfils) fast court specialist in Vasek.
Otherwise hell be alright as there few of this kind of players at that level to run into

Well, yeah, he'll be all right for a top20-top30 player but not a threat for a slam winner. He'll be capable of a big upset on his best day but as for now too inconsistent to reach a slam SF.

Ah ok you meant THAT kind of player, the very good just not great kind . And yeah , hes missing on properties some new tall baseline players dont have that would allow them reach the next level, such as concistency , a plan b vs certain match ups / adaptation to fast surfaces (quick movement and set up for a varying heights, slice, volley, etc)

Hubert you better get your shit together asap, cause a lot of points are dropping off next month, you mugwon. 270 to be precise in next 3 weeks + 115 in Madrid and seeding @ RG can go down the drain

He was playing so well during ATP Cup and then went to shit. Maybe it's just a slump.

I watched some of his matches in the ATP Cup. I wouldn't say he was playing great, only just good, certainly better than now though. Arguably not all his opponents were giving 100% in that event. I'd think he'd rather have some short peaks and longer periods on average level like now so I don't really know if it's a slump or just his normal level.
