Who knows though, new year could mean new player. He has the game to match it with the best but unless he improves consistentcy he'll remain where he is in the rankings.
His match against Baghdatis was amazing, and he held strong against Belluci who was playing well, so that was encouraging.
But he should have beat Roddick today. A-Rod wasn't playing well, and mentally wasn't in a good place. Yet he still lost.
Hard to see him making the top 10 unless he gets these wins.
