Nishikori destroying his opposition, great to see.

Congrats to the title young samurai

Re: Memphis F: Nishikori Bushidos over Lopez 6-2 6-3

Kei

Great week for him, showing his talents yet again. Hopefully he can avoid injuries in the future.

Yup, this is the key going forward. He missed a great chance to go deep in Australia because he had knee tendinitis for the tournament and has already lost a lot in his career due to several injuries - including the whole 2009 year to an elbow surgery. How he can manage his fitness/health will determine how far he can go.

Not sure if playing next week in Delray Beach is the best idea, especially with IW coming right next, but I hope it is. He could win there too if he keeps his level up.

Lopez exceeded my expectations by one game.
