Re: Tokyo QF WWW: Tomas Berdych vs Kei Nishikori

nishikori isn't going to be a future slam champion i think

however, he can have some good runs in slams, definitely win some 500s at least

Yup, in a Slam this would be a R4 level match, a very good R4 at that. Kei has been injury free in the last few months so hope that continues and he gets his ranking up high enough to avoid matches like this so early in a 500 tournament soon

Sorry man, but Kei is a much better player than Boredo on any surface, and far more talented too. He's the best player of the post Del Potro/Cilic generation/age group imo and will show it in the coming years (provided he stops getting injured all the time of course).

It'd be adequate for a 500 SF/F. For a 500 QF it seems too strong to me, especially with matches like Bagdathis vs Tursunov taking place in the same round.

Acually there's one ATP World Tour 750 event that's held once in four years.

How about a M1000 R16, or a 500 semi-final?

I`m sure we have obvious case here - Tommy was toying with Kei and easily took 1st serve and then just lost concentration, he would have won playing focused during all the match.

Anyway, expect Berdy to win, probably in two. Fast courts should suit him, only way for Kei to win would be Tomas having a bad day.

But I hope Kei to win and succeed in front of his home crowd.

If forgeting about wishful thinking - Berdych will most likely destroy Nishikori 2 and 1.

Berdych in straight sets. If he is playing well he will win. Kei is solid baseliner, playing fast tennis, good top 20, but if Tomas will play good he will outplay him, outhim him - courts are supossed to be pretty quick here, so his powerfull groundstrokes and big serve should be enough to hit through Kei and overpower him in rallies.

Re: Tokyo QF WWW: Tomas Berdych vs Kei Nishikori

False hope in Kei. Berdych will take him out in 2 sets.
