Re: AO R1:  Nishikori def Hanescu 67 63 61 63
Not a good performance, but got it done and that's what matters. The fact that he didn't let this turn into one of his trademark early round 5-set mugathons is a plus as well. He should pick up his game as he advances through the draw.
Only concern is his knee - he took another MTO today for a knee massage - hope it can hold up for the entire tournament. Authom or Berlocq next, should be an easy second round.
MTF games titles:
Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost
