Shanghai R3: Nishikori def. Giraldo 7-6(6) 4-6 6-3

Giraldo was down all throughout the third (I think 1-4 at one stage) but had a point to take it to *4-5. Nishikori was clutch though. Pretty sure Giraldo won more points overall.

At a guess, I'd say moving the match indoors helped Nishikori out.

What a fighter, Kei!!! Yattane!!

He must be knackered after three long matches but I wish him all the best against Dolgo. Should be a very exciting match if both of them play to their potential.

With this win, I'm pretty sure he will break into top 40 next week.

Nishikori didn't seem to enjoy tennis this year. I surely think this will be a relief!

Giraldo had his fortune yesterday, today being moved indoors didn't help at all.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Tennis is so unpredictable, Ninjakori is also unpredictable...and I'm loving it!

These results are coming at just the right time, I'm sure Kei and his fans can now see a bit of the blue sky...
