Re: Nishikori playing very good, chances at RG?

if he does well in Madrid and or rome then maybe we can start talking about how deep he can go at roland garros. if he flops and loses early both times than im not thinking he'll be anything to worry about at roland garros

He'll probably get injured in a few weeks, unless he figures out the solution to his delicate body he isn't winning a Grand Slam, period.

Haters in ruins.

As long as he does not face Rafa or Nole he has a decent shot. If he faces Federer then his chances go up quite significantly. He loves bullying Roger around.

R4 or QF if he does well

There's no knee jerk reaction, but there are left-over jerky rodge apologists from the old 2005 days.

Re: Nishikori playing very good, chances at RG?

nil

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

I think Mahut has slightly better chances.

He's Asian and this is a stronger era. Yes, semifinal.

The only way Dimitrov can be considered as a shotmaker is if shotmaking consists of just slices and serves.
Catch the last match between Nishikori and Dimitrov. Dimitrov was pushing and suriviving just because of his serve. Nishikori was the one playing aggressively and thus detecting the baseline rallies with some amazing winners.

Coming up with 1 or 2 jaw-dropping winners per match while slicing for rest of the match does not make you a shotmaker.
