Shanghai QF: Nishikori def. Dolgopolov 6-4 6-3

Nice.

What a performance on the big stage from Kei. Dolgo couldn't find any form today and his usually bewildering tricks were just playing into Kei's strengths.

Mah boi is into the top 30 now.. and rising. Booyah.

Murray/Ebden next.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

nishikori in SF of masters
dolgo was way too eratic, nishi played consistently well although he was lucky many times with the line calls. his balls clipped the lines and called in, whilst dolgo's were called out.

Re: Shanghai QF: Nishikori def. Dolgopolov 6-4 6-3

Dogs Balls had so many break chances 1/7 not good enough, but Nishikori's consistency was too much.

There was this one raging Nishikori fan wonders if she posts on MTF.

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".

Good for tennis. Mugopolov is a joke, once he plays someone who can deal with junk he looks like a clown out there. If either he or Tomug make the top 10 with their dumb style tennis will be at a new low

Dolgo's performance:

Awful stuff.

Nishikori was really solid, but didn't need to do much, just wait for Dolgo to UE.

Re: Shanghai QF: Nishikori def. Dolgopolov 6-4 6-3

Well done Nishikori, great win for him Watched only second set, Dolgopolov showed why he isn't top 10, played stupid tennis, I guess there's no other word. Good to see him out

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
