Can Fish Win The US Open?

If Nalbandian deserves threads like these, then Fish surely does as well.

So can he?

If Fat Fish made QF 2008, then Fit Fish can certainly win!

No, an uninspired Murray is the best he can beat. Fish can't beat a top-5 player when they play best.

Can people stop knee-jerking?

Great form Fishy is on. Hope he has his best ever run at the Open.

He is a lock, there is no doubt in my mind.

Re: Can Fish Win The USO?

Highly unlikely.

Could make the quarters, depending on his draw.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Re: Can Fish Win The US Open?

I said he was going to do big things in another thread. But no, he cant win. Quarters and semis would be his best

Re: Can Fish Win The US Open?

Guess now the Nalbandian bandwagon is derailed, we need another.

Re: Can Fish Win The US Open?

No way. His forehand still need to improve. Nadal is the man but who knows?????? maybe another name there.

Nalbandian is different. he done a lot more than Fish. If he plays his best that could be good enough to beat anyone else.

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018

Re: Can Fish Win The US Open?

Fish could pull off an upset or two at the USO....but i've never seen him able to play at a high level for close to that many best-of-5 set matches in a row. Then again, he appears to be in better shape than anytime before. I say no.

fully Agree. His forehand gets a lot better but still not good enough.

and Slam is different than a master game.

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic
