This is an extremely bold statement, he is almost a certainty to win his first ever mens event and its a challenger. The field wasn't heaps strong but still for a 17 year old to take out players like Klein, Klec, Jones, Robert and now Reid all with ease except Jones is amazing.
He is in the doubles semi later today where him and Bolty will resume their match 7-6 3-3 ahead. If he went the double and won both would be huge...
Personally I hope TA take the chance and give him the wildcards at Roland Garros and the US Open.
Unfortunately the match has just been suspended due to rain, Nick leads 5-2 in the second serving for the match.
What do others think about his year?
It is a bold statement, but when you know Nick, nothing seems too much for him. He always finds a way to lift and to achieve. I'd back this statement, the raw talent is there as is the passion.
