Thiem will be top ten in a couple of months not years, sure Nishikori is nearing exhaustion but what about all the other players Djoko, Nadal,l Murray ,etc all chasing the masters series events 4 in as man weeks, as well as protecting their ranking points, These guys are proffessional athletes, they know the jist.. Kei has a good chance to take the joker down , but he's gonna have to play aggressive and keep away from the backhand, novak likes the deep crosscourt backhand , as Nadal changed his game around it yesterday, Rome is a little faster than Madrid and the hot conditions should dry the court up a little perhaps favoring joker, but there's a reason he's on 16500 points , so I predict Murray vs Nishikori Final on monday morning ...

If Nishikori could have converted more break points 3/13, it would have been a different story , let Nadal off the hook,
Nadal was already confident from his masters win in Monte Carlo, but Kei definently had the game to win his 3rd Barcelona 500, he's the only non spaniard to have won this tournament in the last 13 years, If he can stay fit and healthy, should go very deep at the french... Allez Kei!!!!

I got pulled over in rural shikoku, apparently doing 20 km over the limit , anyway he asked for my license , and passport I replied " I don't carry my pasport when I drive " He seemed perplexed even though he had my Japanese license in his hot little hands , he then the asked Where I was from, and where I lived, as well as where I was going, He then proceeded to take my finger print, and told me to take care as I continued my journey.

The joker is on another level right now , 28 masters 1000 series and counting from 42 finals, amazing, he has the mental and physical edge on all the other players and if he continues the way he is playing he will have another great year.. @DaDude that's a fair argument and I think Djokovic is benefeting from rafa and federers injuries as well as the inconsistincies of wawrinka and murray,, We have the young guns coming up ,Thiem , Krygios, Goffin etc but that's going to take some time.

Djokovic is just expressing his opinion, and why not, The ladies have had it too good, for too long ,they don't play the best of 5 sets at the slams , They don't put as many bums on seats as the men do, there aren't any top 4 on the current WTA tour as the mens, only serena who has won the last 4 out of 6 last slams, on the mens you have real competition more entertaining characters and rallies, but hey I,m just expressing my opinion...

If the waiter barman or whoever has gone out of their way, to provide a service that exceeds their basic job description
Absolutely I always tip.The diference is between,. A good waiter and a great waiter, can certainly enhance your dining experience, you see most of the time service isn't included in your dining experience , so anything in anticipating the customers needs ,from getting a toothpick to topping up the wine,is conducive to the outcome of the dining experience..

They can bow out with their heads held high, very unlucky not to advance to the quarters after winning 3 of 4 matches

Give the guy a break , he come up against a very dangaerous benoit paire who has won a couple of challengers recently and his ranking doesn't really reflect it.. As for Kei he's not going to sweat it over, he already has two 500 titles for the year , and reached the final in Acapulco against ferrer, got to remember there are many great tennis players who have never won a major, Berdych ,Tsonga, Gasquet , Ferrer, just to name a few, Kei will win one soon, everyone is focused on his ranking, win matches and ranking points take care of themselves, atleast his fresh for the asian swing now where he can defend his Rakuten open 500 title..

Perhaps a "responsible service of alcohol" program and or training, could be introduced as it has been in Australia for many years,
I don't know exactly to what extent in Japan that would work, but they could give it a go and see how the results are i one year...
