My only concern about Kei is his mental wanderings - it's incredible how many 3 set matches he has to play because he either starts very slowly or loses focus somewhere in the second set. I think if he wants to be a real threat in tournaments he's going to have to learn the art of the routine win while not playing amazingly well.

I'm not sure this but Kei is a fair bit younger and has more time to develope an even more rounded game.

I'll go with my heart with the vote, so the sky's the limit!

Default Re: World #17 Kei Nishikori's Rise

This bandwagon must to end, he has beaten Tsonga at AO o.k, Nole in Basel o.k. but he won´t do much, he is great player, with interresting game, but he is not even physically good enough to challenge top guys, and without that he is done, because his serve, body strenght are too big liabilities and weaknesses for modern tennis. Lately he was beaten like nothing by Dr. Ivo in Davis cup, wasn´t even able to get 1 set at least to TB, against probably worst returner in top 100. Great-interresting player, ATP is hoping he will be succesfull - that means a lot of money from JAPAN, and making tennis much more popular in Japan- or in east Asia generally, but really i can´t see him to do anything signifficant in future. Top 10 maybe, but this year no. He won´t be top 10 this season

Lol, one bad match against a serve bot and you are writing him off. He's beaten Tsonga twice already risen inside the top 20 from outside the top 40 in a couple months.

I am not writing him off, because of that match- i was pointing out on that match, that he is not so great, the same can be said about matches with Tsonga and Nole-we can´t say how good he is because he won those 2 matches, and if you look in future, his serve and body-strenght won´t get much better, he can go the way - great ROS, speed and movement, deffense, good shot-making he can be ,,new,, Davydenko at his best, but that´s it he won´t be beating top players consistently

Definitely top 10. How long he'll stay there depends on his consistency.

No one could have an easy match against players like Ivo & Isner.Federer even got stuck with him in the AO,until the tiebreaks.Against a 240kph serve machine, a mistake could be disaster.You'll need to abuse smallest opportunities.

Nishikori has some touchness players like Nadal has,cameback again and again.I think a top 10 or no.11 in this season,right after Isner.

I can easily see him replacing Tipsarevic or Fish when they fall out this year.
