Brisbane.1st round. Nishikori bt Stebe 3-6/6-1/6-4

Stebe was rallying 4-1 in the 3rd and clearly dominating the match. When I returned Kei was 5-4 serving for the match .

Stebe choked that away. He'll get mentally tougher as he plays more Tour level matches.

Re: Brisbane.2nd round. Nishikori bt Stebe 3-6/6-1/6-4

Nishikori suffered like a b*tch. But I think he deserved to win because of the 2nd set.
Funny match, lot of breaks, both have great talent and IMO they're gonna be top 10.

Re: Brisbane.2nd round. Nishikori bt Stebe 3-6/6-1/6-4

Kei, will you stop being a slow starter and do away with your habit of losing the first set and staging a come back from a break down in the third? Not good for my heart!

Stebe fought well and didn't miss match, Kei was a bit erratic but as usual he doesn't give up until he grabs the momentum back.

Good luck vs Baggy in R2!

Re: Brisbane.1st round. Nishikori bt Stebe 3-6/6-1/6-4

Stebe lefty forehand produced a big damaged to Kei`s backhand during most of the match as well as the open serve to the Advantage side. He is a bit unstable and probably quite unexperienced against ATP players but if he can be quite more stable during a whole match he can get some good results on hard courts.

Some great rallies in this one. A shame Stebe couldn't close it out, but he's got time on his side.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Re: Brisbane.1st round. Nishikori bt Stebe 3-6/6-1/6-4

If I've seen this scoreline once, I've seen it a thousand times. Does Kei ever win in straight sets?

Re: Brisbane.1st round. Nishikori bt Stebe 3-6/6-1/6-4

Kei wins only one out of four matches when he loses the first set so this is quite a feat.

Here's hoping he can stay healthy for 12 months and finally start building some momentum.
