Just wait and he will be hated - more popular he will be - higher in ranking he will be there will be new haters
I remember year ago or don´t know when but here was similar thread about Ferrer - he was hard-working nice guy who isn´t hated

You will see some people will come up with something vs Nishikori you will see
It's quite simple - you know you're doing something RIGHT when you get to have a good amount of pathetic 'haters'. Nishikori isn't yet there already, but his time will come soon enough... if he manages to back up his Tokyo victory with a few other good victories, especially in case there's some top dog involved.
It's one of the Laws of MTF if I'm not mistaken, and if it isn't yet, I kindly request Jon to include it in his list.
