Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

Re: Cilic will win Shanghai Masters

I like these kind of threads. It usually ends by first match of player mentioned in it.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Re: Cilic will win Shanghai Masters

Thanks for this jinx. Possible 2nd round vs Kližan, but Kubot could be dangerous as well.

Berdych is plenty experienced, and Kei wiped the floor with him. I don't think Kei Matches up well with players like Murray or Federer, who can employ variety and deny him rhythm, but everyone else better watch out.

Re: Cilic will win Shanghai Masters

Dang, check out all them one liners.

I'll agree with you mate, and won't post a one liner.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Nishikori will win a slam

If Kei can develop his serve into even a semi weapon, he will very tough to beat for anyone, including the top 4. His game is amazing otherwise, brilliant ROS and can bully even some of the biggest hitters on tour off the ground - it was incredible how he put Berdych constantly on the defensive in their QF match here in Tokyo. If he remains injury free and beefs up his serve, a Slam is a more than realistic expectation.

A good indication of how good he already is is his H2H against the players currently ranked 5-8:

2-1 vs Ferrer (1-0 in Slams, 1-0 Olympics)

2-0 vs Tsonga (1-0 in Slams)

3-1 vs Berdych


He is completely owned by Del Potro: 0-4, Delpo won all 10 sets they played in mostly easy fashion, but JMDP is on another level and a horrible matchup for him anyway. Against the other 5-8 guys, he has done pretty well - and also let's not forget that he has already beaten Nole once. Even without further improvement on his serve, reaching the top 8 would be a very realistic immediate goal.

Re: Nishikori will win a slam

I have always hoped he would and have always thought he could. Its not just him winning tokyo thats made me believe he can, ever since he came and broke out in 2008 i thought that if he could stay healthy for a long enough period of time he could win one. Federer and nadal wont be around forever nor will murray and djokovic. Look at the guys coming up behind the big 4 and you'd have to give kei a serious shot at at least one.

I dont understand why everyone thinks its such a long shot. I mean, everyone is looking for the next slam winners once the big 4 leave but every time a name or a contender is brought up on this forum they are shot down. Someone has to win these slams opnce the big 4 leave the game and kei will hopefully be around to take advantage

The timing of the thread makes it seem bandwagony but the fact is the potential is there for kei.

you can argue that kei can lose to anyone on a bad or average day but really outside the top 4 that can be said about literally every other player so thats not a fair argument to make against kei specifically
