watching suzuki play is fantastic. i love his net rushing skills and anticipation.

Its a pity that this generation of players doesnt have a sampras-type who could play enough from the back to stay competetive in these conditions but still be successful at net.

i was not a fan of 90's tennis because everyone played the same way. But if we had a few of them - like rafter, sampras in this generation. Tennis would be in a golden age.

I love diversity in tennis, so I agree with what you've said.

In Japan, Wimbledon is still the only slam you can watch on free-to-air TV, and most players and tennis pundits still seem to think serve and volleying is the way to go. While I suspect there are/were some players who would've done better had they opted to play mainly from the baseline, Suzuki is a prime example who has made the most of his potential as a serve & volleyer. Too bad he lacks consistency and has never cracked top 100. (His best ranking to date is 101)

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO FOREVER!!

i heard one of the big reasons is he doesnt play much outside of Japan because he gets paid well for playing locally in leagues etc.

Could be, although I've never heard of that myself.
He was out with a shoulder injury for nearly a year from late 2005. This year he's been playing quite a few challengers at home and abroad, and won two titles, in Kyoto and Granby.

Suzuki is one of the most enjoyable players to watch, it's a shame he never got a good run going in his career.

I would still fancy Pavel tomorrow. Soeda-Hanescu will be the key to the tie.

Yeah I think that it is very possible that Japan win one of the reverse singles.

But if Pavel has another good serving day he has a chance against Suzuki...he should also have mostly recovered from a gruelling Friday singles. I agree with jim in that this come down to a live 5th rubber, and anything could happen in that one.

Agreed, but not only a few... I'd say that if we had like 20 players in the top 100.
