Re: So When Is The Younger Generation Going To Step Up???
Well, Nishikori (born Dec. 1989) reached No. 56 in 2008 when he was still 18, not to mention winning his first ATP title at Delray Beach and reaching R4 at USO. From 2008 to early 2009, Kei had wins over players like Blake, Ferrer, Querrey, Gulbis and Berdych and took a set from #1 Rafa; not bad at all for a teenager.
But his elbow broke down early last year---he underwent a surgery in August and is still doing rehab. (He made a brief come back in Delray this year but lost in R1 three sets.) It seems he still has some pains when he tries to serve strongly.
He's quite injury prone but if he become fitter then the results and rankings should follow.
