You were right about the nerves. Baker, proved that by winning those two tie-breaks against Malisse.
No I don't either. Skill wise he's not on level with the other top players but he's definitely got the game to be top 50.
Too late for Baker to win a slam. He'd have to surmount the level of the Top 3 and I don't see that.
This guy is obviously a smart player and he was in the "zone" during this match. I'm not sure if he'd be able to play like this on a consistent basis but he's got good athletic ability.
27 is not too old to win a slam, look at Andre or Roger. Heck Ferrer is in the top 6 and he's 30 years old. The top 10 are all 25 or older (with the exception of Del Potro.) There is a clear change towards older players sticking around and continuing to have success later in their careers.
I don't think he's a slam contender but like Almagro said "If he continues to play at this level, he's going to win tournaments."
27 is not too old to get something done. Not a Slam, but make some waves.
I'm glad you're convinced Tim. This guy has skills and some pretty good nerves.
Very nice service motion! It's kinda like Fish, but more rounded like Sampras in the windup. And those laser forehands! Very convincing.
