Who still on the tour are the majorless players that you think have displayed a high enough level of play during their career such that they deserve at least one?

Example: Versdasco. His level against Dull in the 09 AO semifinal was out of this world.

Tsonga, Berdych, Ferrer are the first that come to mind. Far more consistent threats than once-in-a-blue-moon Verdasco (he was great then, not disputing that).

Nando obviously has an insanely high peak level, but at how many slams did he bring such quality? Two?

Tsonga, Berdych come to mind.

But this thread seems a bit played out.

Maybe word it differently.

Currently Potro, even if he already has one; "should" be due one.

Lol at Verdasco. The only reason he played like that was because Nadal allowed him to and made him look great. Just like he made Tsonga look great in the 2008 AO only for him to be easily defeated by No1e later.

Didnt Verdasco beat Djokovic 6-2 6-2 a year later?

And did Nadal also make Verdasco beat Tsonga and Murray that same tournament (often forgotten)?

Or make Tsonga take a set + go to tiebreak with Djokovic? Doesn't sound "easy".

Tsonga, Berdych, and Ferrer should have one. It's amazing that Tsonga never won one if you would've told me that after 2008 AO I would've said you're crazy. Berdych and Ferrer were just in the wrong era but I'm not sure Ferrer would've got one even in a average era he probably would've had to peak in a weak era to get one (or more).

Raonic and Nishikori deserve Wimbledon and USO title, respectively.

Nando was undeniably great all tournament. Rafa does tend to sometimes make his opponent look better than he is, but it wasn't the case then. He also beat Andy, who was among the favourites to win the tournament and always plays great in Australia, he was fresh from making his first hardcourt final at the previous slam (USO 2008), and also Nando comprehensively beat Tsonga, who was runner-up in the previous edition. Not to mention, in the first 3 rounds, Nando dished 3 bagels and 2 breadsticks.
Defeated:
1r - Mannarino 6-0 6-2 6-2
2r - Clement 6-1 6-1 6-2
3r - Stepanek 6-4 6-0 6-0

Nando was on fire the whole tournament. Definitely the best level I've seen that didn't end up winning a slam.
