    Good point Parsa made about Best-of-5 format against Nadal. Even taking his Almagro loss in Barcelona into account, I still think it would take some great tennis to take Nadal out at RG. But I also think that the top guys (Novak, Fed, Wawa) could do it if they’re playing their best game. Back in the day, their best wouldn’t do anything. Nadal’s mileage is finally catching up to him, it seems.

    Still no question in my mind that Raonic is a future Grand Slam champ. He’s going to peak right when the Big 4 are essentially gone.

    I like Nick Kyrgios, Dominic Thiem, and Daniel Kosakowski to be maybe a New Big 3 in about 5 years. Tons of upside with those 3. Thiem has impressed me the most, though.

    Looking forward to your Madrid preview!

    Hey Arvis,

    I like your thoughts on Kyrgios, Thiem and Kosakowski. I see Kyrgios and Thiem at the top but I think Daniel’s game is not big enough at the moment. I could be wrong but I think Kyrgios will be No. 1 in the next 4-5 years. Thiem will be a 7-10 player IMHO. Kosakowski will be a top 40-50 player at best in my eyes. Just keep in mind that Dimitrov (like Kosakowski is 22) and we know what Grigor is doing these days. Thanks again for the comments and we’ll talk soon. Madrid preview this Sunday. Cheers.

    I had no idea Kosakowski was already that old. O_O

    Still think he can push top 20 by the time he’s 25, though, if he can get his game together.


Got something to say?
