Yeah, Todd Martin is one of them, too. He was one of the rare all-court american guys.

So than we have guys like Almagro, Gasquet,, Monaco, RAonic, Isner,Simon, Wawrinka,Dolgo so on - from those guys some will have chance in future - for example Raonic or Nishikori should win in future eventually - so maybe Gasquet and Wawrinka would deserve it most from players without Master 1000, but on other hand i don´t think there are good enough. Right now i don´t think there is player that deserve to have at least 1x Master 1000 in his career - by Ferrer it was o.k. this guy is good, top 5 and no Masters, but by another guys there are just good, but you won´t say give them MAster1000 they deserve it
Yes, I meant not higher than "500". Didn`t want to make too long thread title, thought it would be obvious apart from jokes.

Yes, I was speaking about Gonzo. Though James was my 1st thought.

Such a shame that he was a headcase. If not, he would've won Us Open.

BTW, Ancic is also one of the best never to win a masters.

Don't pretend to know what you're talking about, you were in nappies during the short period where Johansson was fit.

Dull has nothing to do with the question... Having no mental game isn't Ann excuse either. If Gonzalez's backhand was as good as his forehand than he would have a bunch of slams, but he didn't.

Health isn't always bad luck, they can be brought up by the player's style. Ok, so I never saw him live, but that doesn't mean that I can't research him and watch him on YouTube...

Explained above ^^

Kafelnikov and DP won slams, so excluding them I think it's gotta be Blake.

Gonzalez comes to mind.

I think Ancic is a good mention, but the unfortunate circumstances of his career made it so that there was a lot he missed out on.

Poor Joachim Johansson He had such a big game but once the shoulder injuries got a grip of him that was the end.

He had the tools to be a major threat. Even after the surgery he served Nadal off court in Stockholm. Showed what a healthy PimPim could have done.
