If Kei can concentrate on winning, 1000's series, hasn't done yet, and going deep in the slams as he just did at the US open, the ranking will take care of itself..
Posted in: How high do you think tennis player Kei Nishikori, currently ranked No. 5, can go in world rankings?

C'mom Le monf , he can do it, although he's been beaten in his last 12 encounters with joker, he's been on a good run since claiming his 1st 500 against Karlovic in the states. The joker has onlyp layed I think 5 sets so far this US open , only been pushed by Jankowitz , three retirements , what are the chances!!! Le monf in 4.....

Bad luck for Kei, on his least favorite surface, can understand the injuries, the ATP schedule is very demanding espescially with the olympics this year, federer been injured quite a bit this year as has Tsonga and Gasquet, who retired yesterday with a back spasm, not to mention the best of 5 sets, compared to the other tournaments, just has to get some rest and prepare himself for Brazil, if he's going?? and then get ready for the US Open series, he' s most favored surface..

Quite a comfortable win against one of the bigger servers in the game , 7-5 in the 3rd , as for for uniqlo, yeh it's great advertising, espescially when novak as well as kei are playing , no matter where they are,good luck to Kei in the next round , hopefully will stay injury free..

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...
