They will NOT win a Master 1000

easier than a Slam, but even then, it's too much for them. Which of these guys will never win a Masters 1000, whatever they try? Hatred and rancor welcome.

Re: They will NOT win a Master 1000

Wawrinka, Simon, Almagro, Baghdatis ---> NEVER. maybe Baggy or even Wawrinka can reach finals or SFs, but they will always lose

Gasquet, Troicki and Golubev ---> maybe, I think, but it will be really difficult. gasquet's form is always ridiculous and in the last year he lost against mugs, Golubev and Troicki showed that they can achieve big results, but they need to have a cakewalk draw in order to clinch a 1000 event

Verdasco, Youzhny and Isner ---> I think they have the potential to win at least one master 1000, and they proved that they are able to win against top-10 players. easy draw and some retirements are, of course, needed

Re: They will NOT win a Master 1000

Isner and Verdasco are the only 2 I can realistically see winning one.

Re: They will NOT win a Master 1000

Verdasco could win one of the clay masters events that Nadal are bound to skip here and there. The others, I seriously doubt it.

Proud fan of Olderer, the GOAT.

Re: They will NOT win a Master 1000

I think Baghdatis could win a "lesser" Masters: Cincinatti, Shanghai and Paris.

Re: They will NOT win a Master 1000

Modern version of Youz seems a little weaponless against the top guys - can anyone see him beating murray/djoko/fed/nadal?

Mugro seems a bit dependent on Nadal getting injured on clay.

Verdasco obviously could hit a hot streak pretty much anywhere. Madrid seems most likely.

Isner .... Cincinnati? If he has a good serving week, and with his stupidly clutch tb play, good luck beating him regardless who you are. Problem seems to be when it's hot/humid, physically he struggles. Indian Wells also he's quite useful cos of the high bounce, and slow court allows him to get in place for the big forehand. Miami the lower bounce hurts him, and it's pretty bad for servers there. Outside US he doesn't have the same focus.

Gasquet: brain transplant needed first.

Golubev I'm not convinced can play fast courts at the top level, but a bit like Gulbis, if he hit a hot streak at Rome perhaps? Obviously a long way off atm, but he's scary when he finds his range.

I have carefully chosen those who don't have a real chance to win a slam but win smaller titles. Youzhny is already 27, i'm not sure. let's cross our fingers to escape boredom: top 4 win everything. Tennis was much more funny before Federer arrived, everybody could win every time in MS, only Slams were the elite's property.

None of the above can beat a Federer/Nadal/Djokovic/Murray in decent form, and there's always at least one of them at a masters 1000.

You should change your username to trollish-hero, all your posts I've seen are incoherent ramblings.

Re: They will NOT win a Master 1000

Isner could win one of the US Masters. Maybe Nadal will skip Madrid next year and Fernando will find his form again and win in his hometown.

Marcos, Misha, Stan and Simon all have chances but I don't think they will.
