Nishikori, in the case of the final defeat, will offset the Benneteau's series of 10 lost finals in a row on ATP tournaments.
Ten finals in less than three years, including four playing months lost to surgery and recovery, plus he has won 11 titles. I like Bennie a lot but being 0-10 is not offset by Kei’s schneid.

Kei’s only finals lost to non-slam champions in this string are to Dimitrov (Brisbane’17), Dogpololov (Buenos Aires’17), Medvedev (Tokyo’18) and Anderson (Vienna’18). Benneteau played one slam champion (JMDP Rotterdam’13) in the 6-plus year string of finals. Ironically enough, Kei fed him his 10th loss (Malaysia’14)

This better not be another false dawn where Kei plays so well during the week only to lay an egg in the final. Without going into his opponents form during the title matches, Kei had a few of those moments in the latter half of 2018 especially.

Backing Kei to win here though, break the three year drought.

It's really unfortunate Kei has been by a good margin the most successful of the LostGen but all those finals losses. Here they are in perspective:

3 Masters to Djokovic, Djokovic and Nadal
4 500s to Nadal, Cilic, Medvedev and Anderson
2 250s to Dimitrov and Dolgopolov

Only one went to a 3rd set, he was down 0-1 in that against Dimitrov.

This after he started out 11-5.

Really hope he wins, I really don't like Medvedev.

Have hard time to predict this one. Medv comes in really strong, but the thing to beat in a back to back final Nishi just doesn't sound right.

I like it. Mixed up the depth and Nishikori could not comply.

3-0 Too early to say it is over. Nishikori is looking like a man that knows what the future holds.

What a rally, ladies and gentlemen. wow

That's what we came to see. Turned into a bit of bash flat shot fest at the end to make it even more sensational. :cool:

Rublev is ginger, has a s**tty second serve, and is angry/mean toward himself and not others: every bit an heir to the Muzziah.
Pardon me, but I'm a bit of a ginger elitist.

Rublev ain't no ginger.

But the rest is true though.

So you'd forgive me for quality bricklaying if I beat meself up, no?
