Default 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?

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

Default 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.
