rios is to this day the most talented player to have ever picked up a racquet.

moyá is nadal's mentor (not uncle toni as some claim). in today's jargon, rafa should refer to him as "father".

Also, Rios was number 1 as intermediate between several Pete Sampras number 1 ranked streaks, so this "atp had rios and moya as number ones " doesn't make much sense really. Moya and Kafelnikov as well. Sorry Sombrero.

Re: Nishikori will win a slam

Well the last person to bagel their opponent in the Tokyo final went on to win the US Open, so my bet is there

The ATP will still always be stronger than the WTA, no matter how strong the WTA is, besides, Rios and Moya were #1 for about one second.

Re: Nishikori will win a slam

Most definitely. I think it will be great seeing him win slams along with Raonic in the future.

No. Just a reasonable statement. This thread will be great bumping material in a few years time.

It's about not reaching a final, not about not winning one.

Re: Nishikori will win a slam

I think Nishikori could have a Ferrer type career. Having a hard time going all the way in major tournaments but doing real good in 250s/500s and possibly peaking at around 4-5 in the rankings. Maybe not so high but at least a shot at top10. No slam wins

Re: Nishikori will win a slam

Nishikori has an efficient game that will take him to the top 10 but I've yet to see the variety and big weapons needed to win a GS.
