Quite a fortunate draw for Nishikori, as Seppi ( who I would say is not a good match-up for Kei) always plays bad on North America, so he could definitely make R3 [ he should be stopped there based on current form].
Re: Montreal R1: Nishikori def. Polansky 4-6 6-4 6-2
I watched some games of this match and it was awful. Polansky was playing normal but Kei had some stupid decisions. When Polansky was hitting CC FH, Kei was trying to make a winner. Serve was awful. FH wasn't working.
But no athlete had the year Novak Djokovic had. No athlete was as consistently superb, January through November. No athlete was as complete in all the aspects of his or her game (...) the best on all surfaces: indoors and out, hardcourt, clay, and grass. No athlete, week in and week out, faced the level of competition he did: men’s professional tennis, as gets said at the start of every big televised match—because it’s true—is in a golden age. (...) And while Federer had some year (2006), he accumulated only about half the A.T.P. point total Djokovic just amassed.
