I accept that his underrated status is going to change any time soon, then again he isn't one of the ATP poster boys, so it's not surprising.
Well in a way it's better for him that he doesn't get the credit he deserves or is overlooked for his versatility and overall game.
Nalle can use that to his advantage as motivation to prove some people wrong, that is always a good motivation. Hopefully I am wrong about him not getting recognised, but I don't see it in the near future.
Hopefully he can win a Slam or TMS very soon, for himself and to stick it to some moronic media people.
I think you're right, he's been underrated in the past and still is, but I don't think he'll be in the future, at least I hope not.
I think his wrist is not an issue anymore and he has it all to win a TMS or even a GS, he's been very close in the past, and I'm not just talking about that Wimbledon final. He just has to be confident enough and take care of himself, I'm sure he'll have a great year.
