Nishikori Wins Shanghai Opener

by ATP Staff | 09.10.2012

Kei Nishikori played on Tuesday just 48 hours after lifting his second ATP World Tour trophy in Tokyo.

Kei Nishikori, the No. 14 seed, who became the first Japanese player to win the Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships on Sunday, opened his Shanghai Rolex Masters campaign 48 hours later with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Chinese wild card Di Wu in 72 minutes.

“Obviously, it's not easy to play [so soon] after winning the tournament,” said 22-year-old Nishikori, who comes into the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament at a career-high No. 15 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings. “But I had a good day today…I love to play here.” Last year, he reached the semi-finals.
