I was specifically refering to that QF match. Murray, imho, played better than Djokovic in the first 2 sets, but lost one and then completely ran out of gas in the 3rd and 4th.

Re: Among these players, who is the most likely to win a Masters 1000 event this year

Tough to say. Alexander Zverev is the most likely among those to win multiple Masters 1000 in his career but if he's the most likely this year is another question. I could see him win some more tournaments this year, among them maybe a ATP 500 event. If he wins a Masters 1000 event as soon as this year then tennis will have a bright future.

Most likely among the four? I'd still say Kei Nishikori followed by Milos Raonic mostly for their consistency. If Djokovic and Murray happen to fail in early rounds more often this consistency will likely pay off.

Probably Nishikori.
Raonic just has to see Djokovic/Murray in the draw and he will already soil his pants.
Zverev is a fantastic player but I doubt he has the consistency right now to beat two top 10 players which he would likely have to do to win it.
Kyrgios is just crazy lol.
But Nishikori is as fragile mentally as he is physically, so he isn't exactly going to win 5 masters this year.
Most likely he will snatch one hc masters tourney this year. It would be high time.

Raonic and it's not even close. Zverev still has a year or two to go to be able to compete with the big guys on the highest level. Nishikori is mentally weak, he may snatch one, but dunno.. this year, unlikely. Maybe he'll pull off a Ljubicic and win one in 2020.
Kyrgios, yeah, ain't gonna happen, he's just too childish. Unfortunately, though, he has lots of talent.
That being said, Milos should be the one to win it first and I expect him to do it on his home soil in August.

None of them most likely. Probably another year with Masters dominated by Big5.

Nishikori has been really fucking awful these 2 weeks. His backhand isn't clicking, he looks slow, fragile and unmotivated. Plus he lost ALL the clutchness he used to have. I mean ALL of it.

I'd say it's between Kei and Milos. But seeing Kei's recent performances I'll go with Raobot botting his way to a 1000.

Not that it's likely but definitely more plausible than the other options

A Zverev not likely this year or next but maybe after that.
Raonic, not likely because of his choking at the business end of tournaments.
Nishikori not likely because of his inconsistency and propensity to injury.
Kyrgios most likely but only if he makes an honest attempt.
