R1 (BYE) R2 Jan 1, 2014 d. Matthew Ebden 6-2, 6-4




Second seed Kei Nishikori made a smooth start to his Brisbane International campaign on Wednesday, dismissing Australian Matthew Ebden 6-2, 6-4 to reach the quarter-finals at the Queensland Tennis Centre.

The Japanese player needed just 62 minutes to advance, breaking serve three times and winning 77 per cent of his service points. “I had a good preparation,” said Nishikori. “I was working with Michael [Chang] for two weeks in California. I went back to the IMG Academy in Florida for another two weeks. I had a good preparation and good training. I was playing a lot, so I'm very confident to come here.”

Re: Kei's Photo & Video thread

Brisbane QF Jan 3, 2014 d. Marin Cilic 6-4, 5-7, 6-2




Second seed Kei Nishikori advanced to the semi-finals of the Brisbane International presented by Suncorp in scorching temperatures on Friday at the Queensland Tennis Centre. The Japanese player edged Marin Cilic 6-4, 5-7, 6-2 in two hours and 37 minutes.

Nishikori improved to a 4-2 FedEx ATP Head2Head record over Cilic as he saved 14 of the 15 break points he faced. "It was hot, it was tough conditions," said Nishikori. "Especially playing one-hour sets, two [hours] and forty minutes (on court). It was not easy, but I'm happy to finish strong in the third set. He was dropping his level a little bit I think. I'm very happy today.

"It is a big challenge for me to play a final in the first week of the [season]. I have been playing well and I had a good preparation, so I feel like I can."

Nishikori is through to the semi-finals in Brisbane for the second year in a row, with his run ending against Andy Murray last year. The 24 year old will look to reach his sixth ATP World Tour final when he faces Lleyton Hewitt.
