Weapons: Great movement, not afraid to play aggressively, proven at Wimbledon.
Weaknesses: Serve can go AWOL, lacking a huge weapon to go deep.

Perhaps surprisingly, Fergasm has made the fourth round of Wimbley three of the past four years and has proven himself on grass. He’s playing super well this year and can use his well rounded game to get past lesser opponents. However, you’ve gotta feel that he lacks a huge weapon, particularly the serve or forehand, to go far and take out some of the top guys on grass. I await to be proven wrong, however. Could this be the year?
