I didn't really have high expectations for him at this tournament. But he looked better in the 2nd than he did in the 1st. The learning curve him is going to be steep - I think he'll be the "most improved" player by the end of the tournament. A guy with his physical skills and pedigree at the junior level is going to drink this experience all in and improve.
