Re: 2011 Australian Open!

So its Fabio Fognini in the first round and a possible 2nd round encounter with the super-talented Russian Nikolay Davydenko, who has just beaten Rafael Nadal in Doha last week. Very interesting tough draw.

Good luck Kei!

Go Air Kei!

Re: 2011 Australian Open!

tough matches as always, but this is probably fairly decent draw compare to some of the past ones.

Re: 2011 Australian Open!

From Nick B:

http://nickstennispicks.com/2011/01/...ngles-round-1/

2011 Australian Open – Nick’s Picks – Men’s Singles Round 1

[...]

Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. Fabio Fognini (ITA)

This is the first career meeting between the 21-year old Nishikori and the 23-year old Fognini. Nishikori made a name for himself a couple of years ago when he won a title in surprise fashion. He has been injured off and on and is now working with Brad Gilbert and IMG Bollettieri Tennis coach, Dante Bottini. He is feeling good and when he is on, he can beat the best. He just took down Marin Cilic and Alejandro Falls in Chennai and demonstrated why he can be such a threat.

Fognini isn’t going to hurt Nishikori, but he can run all day. Nishikori has to be patient and pretend like he is playing on clay. Just wait for his chances and then strike when he has the opportunity. He cannot get over-aggressive and has to remain focused. I look for Nishikori to win, but this will not be a short match.

Nick’s Pick – Nishikori in 4 sets
