I think Kyrgios has to win this for the sake of his career.

Well... David already has a masters (Paris 2012 IIRC). Hoping for a Nick win to boost his confidence.

Why him as he's the youngest one

Dimitrov is closer to 30 and part of the relatively underachieving 89-92 era

The last American to win a big title is the first Masters of the decade

Ferrer is 36

Re: Somebody will win their highest profile tournament on Sunday

Agree for Ferrer. It would be a great bookend to his career.
Of course, Nick has the talent to do it, and the pysche not to. He is potentially the next world #1, or the next throw myself down the dunny mid career Agassi...It's hard to look away. Rafa must be furious. I get the feeling he hates losing to Nick.

Re: Somebody will win their highest profile tournament on Sunday

I legit think it might be Isner.

Isner def. Dimitrov, Kyrgios def. Ferrer, Isner def. Kyrgios seems very plausible to me.

Form says Kyrgios, quality says Dimitrov, match-ups say Ferrer, gut says Isner. So idk at all really.

Well, he's the only potential GS winner among the remaining players and a win here can finally put him on the right track.

Re: Somebody will win their highest profile tournament on Sunday

Hope it's Kyrgios but wouldn't mind Dimitrov. Isner, sadly, is probably favourite though.

Re: Somebody will win their highest profile tournament on Sunday

Would be in my top 5 happiest moments as a tennis fan if Ferrer won it.
Good match up against Kygrios, who may be injured
Isner is tough for him but Dimitrov would be easy to beat.
I'll go for Isner to win it though

Re: Somebody will win their highest profile tournament on Sunday

I'm frankly not down with Isner winning -- with so many opportunities in these American tournaments (+Newport and Atlanta wins) I think 1 Masters may be a "long time coming".

Isner is out already defeated by Dimitrov 7-6 7-6!

Re: Somebody will win their highest profile tournament on Sunday

With Isner out, I guess I'll be OK with either? But still rooting for Kyrgios, then we'll see a bit of a close gen clash.
