Showing steady improvement over the past 5 years since turning pro in 2011, it appears as though the Austrian is on the cusp of cracking the top 10 of the ATP. After a tight first set in which he dropped the TB, Dominic managed to hold off Sascha Zverev (Rising Star #2?
in the 3rd of Roland Garros and marches into the 2nd week looking solid.
Although I don't much care for the buggy whip forehand, when he comes over his 1HBH my jaw drops. I can't believe how much torso rotation he gets.
The fluidity of his serve looks as effortless as Sampras' and his instinct for using it gets better each year.
I expect/hope that by the end of next year he is solidly entrenched in the top 10 and pushing for his first slam. :fingers crossed:
