150365_172596839424488_5812539_nEvery year there is a new anointed "Can't Miss Star." In the past few years, we've gotten Raonic, Harrison, Tomic, Nishikori and Gulbis. While Nishikori and Raonic, and very briefly Tomic and Gulbis, have had their shining moments, they've all basically settled into either dismal, mediocre or fine but nothing special careers. The latest in that line is Jerzy Janowicz. Sure he has a lot going for him. He's still only 22. He's Polish in a sport that hasn't seen a top Pole since Wojciech (definitely the hardest first name to spell in tennis) Fibak and the guy's 6-8 and tends to fall on the demonstrative side of the tennis personality spectrum. Jerzy reached the finals of the Paris Indoors last year and I already see Douglas Robson has a feature article out on him in the new tennis online magazine that's just come out. But somehow, Jerzy hasn't gotten the message. He's only 9-7 on the new year that's getting down to it's meatier section, and while he's still ranked No. 25, his two biggest wins this year were against Benneteau and Nalbandian. What's happened? Well, like many newcomers streaking up the rankings and the pundits' "Can't Miss" declarations, opponents have found big holes in Jerzy's game. He had a very public breakdown on the court at the Australian Open where he lost to Almagro in straight sets and like the other behemoths on the tour--think Isner, Anderson and Karlovic here--he still has to work on his movement and ability to rally with the fleet-footed rank-and-file of the ATP Tour.So will Jerzy rise again? Not likely on the red clay of Europe, but maybe we'll confront that question again as Wimbledon approaches.
