Yoshihito Nishioka

Don't know much about the kid, but he's having a really impressive week. He's in the final of USA F28 without dropping a set. Beating experienced guys like Devilder and Obradovic easily. He'll play Jason Kubler in the final tomorrow.

Nishioka is barely 16 years old (born in Sept. 1995). So a futures final is allready a pretty good result.

Re: Yoshihito Nishioka

Yes, I just noticed this as well. Pretty impressive go get there without losing a set (including beating Devilder etc). I saw he was an unranked qualifier and looked up his name on ITF tennis and found out he was only just 16. Hadn't heard of him before, maybe one to keep an eye on in future draws.

Re: Yoshihito Nishioka

Nishioka, Nishikori. What does this "Nishi" part means? Do japanese names mean something? Kazakh names do (though I cannot say what my name mean, it's not clearly Kazakh, just partly, it was made of kazakh word "danalyk" which mean "wisdom", so "dana" in names means something like "wise" )

It's from Junior Davis Cup.

By the way, asian tennis is definetely growing - world championship's final "ITF Junior Tennis Finals 2011" for 14 years was Korea vs Japan.


I watched these finals and was impressed by KANG KuKeon (Kor) and Jumpei Yamasaki (JPN), they were good.

"Nishi" in Kei's surname and Nishioka's surname are different.

In fact, Kei's surname is quite an uncommon one. It's written as 錦織 in kanji characters, and this surname is usually pronounced "Nishiki-ori," the first kanji 錦 is "nishiki" and the second one 織 is pronounced "ori."
But in Shimane, where Kei comes from, this surname is pronounced Nishikori.
If you show the name 錦織 to random Japanese people, most of them will say it's pronounced "NISHIKI-ORI."

"Nishi" in Nishioka's surname means "west." "Oka" is "hill." His name is written as 西岡 in Kanji characters. The first one is "Nishi" (west) and the second one is "oka" (hill).
This 西 (Nishi) appears in many surnames, such as Nishimura, Nishino, Nishida, Nishikawa, etc.

Re: Yoshihito Nishioka

Still posting good results. Won a future earlier in the year.

He did get worked over pretty good by Kyle Edmund in the semi's of a recent future.

How big is he?
