What do you guys think? This man with pure shot making talent, one of the best footwork on tour can challenge defensive mugs at RG? How far he'll go ?

considering he's only made 1 slam QF I think its a stretch to assume that he can now make the jump to champion
I think he could try to at least get to another QF though although the seedings would be hard for him as he could face a Top 10 player at the 4th Round.

I expect deep run AT RG, it'll good for Tennis especially in weakest era like this

I watched his match with Gulbis and was so disappointed with Gulbis' game. He did nothing. Cilic as well, What happened to those guys. Dolgopolov was hot for three events and then nothing.Monfils was hot for two matches only. I really can not say who can do better in FO. Who knows maybe they like to save energy and do not get injured for FO.

IMO QF for sure let's see!
he'd need a good draw for a QF. I suppose if he brings this kind of form for roland garros then a QF is possible but that's still a while away and he's still yet to be able to prove he can play this well for a prolonged period of time.

then there's dangerous good clay courters that will be unseeded that would be favored over him in best of 5

if he does well in Madrid and or rome then maybe we can start talking about how deep he can go at roland garros. if he flops and loses early both times than im not thinking he'll be anything to worry about at roland garros
