If i understand correctly you mean best player that never won anything bigger tha 500 level tournamen yes? that´s why Delpo and Kafelnikov don´t count right?
So i think than Gonzalez is good pick, like someone mentioned, from current top players - Tipsy is higher ranked player without Master 1000 if we don´t count Delpo with slam of course.
So than we have guys like Almagro, Gasquet,, Monaco, RAonic, Isner,Simon, Wawrinka,Dolgo so on - from those guys some will have chance in future - for example Raonic or Nishikori should win in future eventually - so maybe Gasquet and Wawrinka would deserve it most from players without Master 1000, but on other hand i don´t think there are good enough. Right now i don´t think there is player that deserve to have at least 1x Master 1000 in his career - by Ferrer it was o.k. this guy is good, top 5 and no Masters, but by another guys there are just good, but you won´t say give them MAster1000 they deserve it
Yes, I meant not higher than "500". Didn`t want to make too long thread title, thought it would be obvious apart from jokes.
Fernando who? Gonzalez? He's a contender.
There's the likes of Gaudio, J.Johannson, maybe the likes of Magnus Larsson.
Yes, I was speaking about Gonzo. Though James was my 1st thought.
