He has to do it allways now, or some crowds could think they are being viewed as inferior. Obviously he is sensible enough to not do it when his opponent retires.

I love Kei

You have a point here, he hardly has any haters. IMO, hating Kei should be a bannable offense, there's absolutely nothing to hate. Would be great for the game if Kei could win a Slam sometime.

Give it time. Someone will find a reason to dislike Kori, no doubt.

Re: Is Nishikori the highest ranked player with no haters on MTF?!!

Kei is awesome, but he'll get haters over time, just like anyone else. I know it's a bit different, but even Shvedova has people who dislike her and there is nothing to dislike about her at all.

I don't see why people would dislike Kei tbh. I can understand why some people aren't fans of him, but i don't see whats to dislike about him either.

Re: Is Nishikori the highest ranked player with no haters on MTF?!!

The Ferrer haters only really started to surface this year. The more sucess Kei has the more likely he is too gain some haters unfortunately.

I doubt he will ever be topping MTF disliked polls though he just naturally dosent provoke reaction the way some of the other guys do.

Go Andy!

Re: Is Nishikori the highest ranked player with no haters on MTF?!!

One day Kei will be either vulture or overrated mug. Either player who won a lot in weak era or slamless pusher, so on. It`s like this site works it seems to me.

Though I`m surprised that no Djoko fan is pissed with him - Kei dared to beat Nole and then easily lost to Fed once.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: Is Nishikori the highest ranked player with no haters on MTF?!!

I really think he doesn't have haters because he never was hyped. Nobody ever claimed him "next best thing" who will win majors. Nobody ever said he is "Future No.1" like it was for Raonic, Tomic and Harrison. English-speaking media never fussed about him (of course, I know, Japanese press is another story, af far as I know they even made a non-fiction film about him)

Mostly all over his career he was "Project 45", and his fans never irritated others with continuous "OMG, here begins his glorious GOATness" (Mostly because his fans lived through one year without him and can call a week successful if Kei didn't injured again.

I can admit, I HATE hype. And I can start dislike young gun only because of hype: it's so irritating.

THERE IS NO SIGNATURE HERE.

He will never be a vulture because he will not schedule tons of 250/500 tournaments with weak fields to inflate his ranking. Nor will he ever be a Slamless pusher because he's not a pusher

I did hate him. I did not really have any good reasons to hate him, but God, I did... I assume the only true reason behind it was that he had become famous by beating Kafelnikov really early when he won his first RG. And then he beat him again and again in very close matches.
At the time I was about 13 or something, so I tended to be childish in that way and hate on players who beat my favourites (now I have grown out of it, unlike many people out here who still do that as adults )

One reason that was slightly less stupid was that I could not stand the hype around him, and the kind of "he's so cool and he's Brazilian" thing (dunno why being Brazilian seems to automatically add a bonus). I also tend to dislike people who are too obvious crowd-pleasers (drawing a giant heart on the clay court...). It makes me suspicious (because some people who are really not that nice in reality are really good at being loved by crowds and the media) and it irritates me.

And also I hated his game and his grunts and did not find him exciting to watch at all.

But to be honest, I think I really had no reason to hate him and although I've always been unconvinced by the "he's the coolest guy on earth" argument, I have no reason to think that he was not really a genuine nice guy. If I had not been so hell-bent on hating him from the start, maybe I would have loved him like everyone else

LOL! The only reason why other players have haters is because of people like you who hate on them!

I'm sure that as soon as he beats some of the great favourites, plenty of people will find things to hate about him. And if he ever wins a Slam, he will have tons of haters.

He played 6 250s this year, including Buenos Aires and Acapulco (which are vulture tournaments because Ferrer won them). He also played Kuala Lumpur, where Ferrer was the highest seed.

Of course, if you like a player it's easy to look past these little things called 'facts'.

Maybe because of this?
He could've easily picked a female player or a legend but no.

Don't see how anyone can actually dislike Kei.

His game is exciting and pleasant to watch, and he's a great down to earth character, not much to dislike at all.

Re: Is Nishikori the highest ranked player with no haters on MTF?!!

I am sorry to say, he has haters.

In this thread, we see that nixer (post #9) and cutesteve22 (#35) both hates him:
Your attitude towards each and every top 100 player, vol. 2, edition 2012.

There are a couple of others who really don't like him, but overall he is well liked - lots of pluses.

Re: Is Nishikori the highest ranked player with no haters on MTF?!!

I don't hate him but it seems you people have failed to notice that he calls for the trainer just about more than any other player on tour.

even had him out twice against raonic. it's pretty irritating.
