Peak Nishikori vs Peak Davydenko?

Which of these players is better when they're at their zenith? Both have distinct similarities in terms of how they operate at the baseline:

- Proficient in both their FH and BH wings
- Likes to take the ball early
- Clean ball-striking
- Very quick on the court
- Aggressive mindset.

Granted, they have only played each other twice in 2012 where Nishikori won both encounters but I wouldn't say they were both at their A game.

What do you think?

Gotta go with the bald one

We haven't seen peak Nishikori enough to judge. He just doesn't deliver in the big games these days

Everyone will answer Davydenko so there's no point asking. Apparently, the sun shines out of the ass of the past.

Re: Peak Nishikori vs Peak Davydenko?

A month ago I watched Nishikori for the first time in a year and he so much reminded me of Davydenko.

But peak Davy would win. He was a machine, should have won that AO where he badly choked against Federer.
