From Kyodo News

Nishikori pulls out in 1st round of Heineken Open
AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Jan. 12 KYODO

Rising Japanese tennis star Kei Nishikori handed former world No. 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero of Spain an easy passage into the second round of the Heineken Open on Monday after he was forced to withdraw in the first set with an injury to his right arm.

Nishikori, who hurt the same arm during a straight-sets defeat to Paul-Henri Mathieu of France in the quarterfinals of last week's Brisbane International, looked good in the first set but had to retire at 5-3 down.

"I made a good start but my arm started to hurt and I was unable to continue
playing. The whole of my arm hurts," said the 19-year-old Nishikori, who is hoping to recover in time for next week’s Australian Open in Melbourne.

"I leave for Melbourne tomorrow and will probably spend the whole day getting treatment," added the world No. 59.

Nishikori is the second-highest ranking Japanese after Shuzo Matsuoka, who achieved the highest-ever ranking by a Japanese man under the computerized world rankings established in 1973 with 46th place in July 1992.

Get well soon, Kei...

From Kyodo News again:

Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2009

Nishikori's arm injury not serious: source
Kyodo News

Kei Nishikori, who aggravated an arm injury at the Heineken Open on Monday, should be fit to compete in the upcoming Australian Open, his management company said.

"It is not a serious injury and if he undergoes a few days of treatment he should be ready for the Australian Open," his management said Monday.

"After a lot of intense training in the off-season, this is a typical sort of injury to get early in the season and should be better in four or five days."

The Australian Open gets under way in Melbourne next Monday.

Nishikori handed former world No. 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero of Spain an easy passage into the second round of the Heineken Open after he was forced to withdraw in the first set with an injury to his right arm.

World No. 59 Nishikori, who hurt the same arm during a straight-sets defeat to Paul-Henri Mathieu of France in the quarterfinals of last week's Brisbane International, looked good in the first set but had to retire at 5-3 down.

I hope IMG is right!!

It's an opportunity for Kei to create another string of headlines. I would love to see Kei create an upset, if he ever meet Murray

Re: The " 2009 Oi Oi Down Under Season - Australian Open !!!!! Main Draw

Melzer I think is a winnable match although the Austrian is a tricky opponent because he has some unorthodox shots and is a lefty.
I also love to see Kei vs Murray! Hope he reached at least R3!

Hope his arm will be OK though. Apparently, he changed racket grip when serving during the off season, so I'm suspecting that might have something to do with the pain.

Re: The " 2009 Oi Oi Down Under Season - Australian Open !!!!! Main Draw

Kei apparently started practicing on court from today. I saw a short news clip on TV and he was wearing a tape around his right elbow.
He told the media that he still had little pains. But he looked calm, even smiling, when he said that.
I really hope he'll be able to play without any discomfort...!

Btw, Kei's first match is on Tuesday, which is good considering the circumstances!
Good luck, Kei!

Re: The " 2009 Oi Oi Down Under Season - Australian Open !!!!! Main Draw

yeah its good to get some more rest, although probably still hitting a lot in practice courts. but with him admitting there's still pain isn't comforting at all.

can only hope for the best! good luck kei.
