I thought Rosol looked very impressive. He's an all or nothing kind of guy but when he's hitting those lines he's gonna be a threat to any one.
Interesting to see him being so aggressive on clay.
Saw him at Queens last year, think he's got much better and he's young isn't he? Lots of time.

Not exactly young at 27, well in tennis terms

He could be what's known as a late-bloomer, so it'll be interesting to see how far he progresses now.

Or it could just be a one off, like Zeballos' win on clay earlier in the year, time will tell

I agree with rob92.  Darren Cahill said two years ago that he reckoned Andy would play his best tennis between the age of 25-28, although we still have to see how well this year pans out for him before coming to any definite conclusion.  Taking Lendl on as his coach has worked very well so far, but ultimately there's only so much he can do.  The rest is up to Andy himself.  On the other side of the coin - over the past 30 years or so, how many whiz-kids have survived much beyond their mid-20s?  There are exceptions like Federer and Nadal, although Nadal's knees are still a concern - and Djokovic didn't really get going until he was 23, despite having won his first Slam at the age of 20.

Late bloomer to me means starting to win things later on in your career, Andy was a slam finalist when he was 21 and he had titles before then including masters, he is so far away from late bloomer as can possibly be.

IF you are judging his career based on slam wins then yes hs won his first in the middle of his career, but yeah on the whole i don't agree with your assessment or Arob92s sorry.

You're perfectly entitled to your opinion, but so far rob92 hasn't responded as to why he thinks Andy is a late bloomer, so therefore he has offered no assessment for you to disagree with.

I realise that, but why say that you disagree with his assessment as well as mine when he hasn't given any explanation to back up his initial claim?  After all, he could be thinking about something quite different from me.

Cheers, he's a lot older than I thought. Might get to top 20 then, but agree with you, unlikely to make a huge breakthrough.
Am obviously thinking of another chap Think
Wouldn't call Andy a "late bloomer" either. Made a huge impact as a teenager and got to No 4 years ago. Him, Nole and Rafa were phenomenal.

For the same reason you agreed with his assessment when he hasn't given any explanation to back up his initial claim

Yep they certainly stood out of the crowd, the young hopefuls today are a bit behind them success wise at the same stage of their careers.
