BRISBANE INTERNATIONAL 2013

Nishikori Notches 100th Win In Brisbane Opener


by ATP Staff | 31.12.2012


Fifth seed Kei Nishikori earned a belated 23rd birthday present on Monday as he notched the 100th match win of his career by defeating Australian No. 1 Marinko Matosevic 7-5, 6-2 to open his Brisbane International campaign. The Japanese player turned 23 two days ago.

Nishikori saved four of the five break points he faced and capitalised on a second serve percentage of 39 percent from the No. 49-ranked Matosevic to claim victory in one hour and 42 minutes. He earned a clash with either Spain’s Tommy Robredo or American qualifier Ryan Harrison.

Happy new year everyone!
Missed his first match of the new season but I'll try to catch his first match of 2013.

Re: Kei's 2013 Season - Australian winter

AO's draw

1R Hanescu
2R qualifer or Berlocq
3R Youzhny
4R Ferrer

1R and 2R, he should win straight sets in this surface. He has never faced against Youzhny, so I don't know this match-up for Kei.

GL

That's if he's healthy enough, Berlocq will give him a match.

Re: Kei's 2013 Season - Australian winter

Kei's into the 4th round with 2 straight set victories, up against Ferrer on Sunday.
Got to be 100% fit to beat Ferrer.

C'mon Kei, hope this one will be a beaut!
