It won't be anytime soon, but in the next 2 to 5 years... I have a feeling that this is a bold and unpopular prediction, but being a Nadal fan means that I have a lot of knowledge about tennis and can recognize talent when I see it.

So in your opinion, will Vasek Pospisil eventually win a slam?

:lol: Not that Vasek will ever win a slam but now he is doomed for sure.

No way. I'm a fan, but he needs a national team/doubles partner/supportive crowd for success. He's a team player in an individual sport.

I'm a fan but I don't think so. I think he could be a doubles all-time great though, which okay, it wouldn't be like singles, but still pretty awesome.

I'm not a fan, but I do think he will. I don't think he could be a doubles all-time great, though, which wouldn't be like doubles, but still pretty awful.

The talent is there but I do not think Vasek realizes how talented he is. He has the game to be top 15 but again the issue for me is his intensity. This guy needs Ivan Lendl.

Is winning majors in doubles such a big deal? I always wonder how much credits should be given to the Bryan brothers, who had to give up singles because they had realized they couldn't make a living as single players. I know they made a smart decision and now they have earned over 10 million dollars in prize money, which nearly equals Kei's career earnings, though Kei will add a lot more to his purse from now on. Do you think players who can't stay in the top 50 for more than a year should concentrate on doubles instead? What do you think?

I thought so too after watching him play on Wimbledon. But later I was surprised at his age (25). Seems too late. Maybe he's like Wawrinka and will peak at 28-30. Who knows. Definitely has potential though.

He's 25?!? :confused: He looks like he's 22 or something... :eek:

Nevermind this thread ;) :bolt:

In doubles yes. He can win the career doubles slam, and I'm serious about that. Not singles though, impossible. He's a great doubles player though, but not going to win anything significant in singles.

I have never seen him play, so I have no idea how good he is, but I'm positive he will not win a slam in his career. He's just not cut out that way. As little as I know about this guy, I must say I'll have my head shaved if he does win one, but I highly doubt it. Before he wins one, Kei will be victorious.

Make some catalogue of these bold predictions, because people think anyone will remember this silly statements. And Pospisil winning GS is alltime flop of predictions...

Give Pospisil nice draw and maybe he is going to make some run twice a year. 25 yo. No singles titles yet. This thread is horrible.

He's too limited on the ground. Decent but nothing special. And Logos, you know very well he got let off the hook by Troicki.

Get your facts straight at very least before starting these threads. Yes he made Toronto SF in 2013 losing to Raonic and beat Berdych en route but asides from that, I don't see top 10 material, let alone a slam
