Haha.. don't add salt to Thomas' wound, Kinokino-san.

Poor Thomas

Re: Kei Nishikori

Quote:
Murray's claim that the courts are damp seem to carry some weight—Nadal hits the turf against rising Japanese Kei Nishikori in probably the most entertaining match of the day, a three-set victory for the world No. 2.

At 3-4 in the second and 15-0, with a slight of drizzle in the air, Nadal falls after hitting a backhand behind the baseline. He rises quickly, though is out of position and can't retrieve the next shot. On the following point, Nadal puts away an easy backhand volley, only to slip feet-first into the bottom of the net, losing the point. His feet end up on the other side of the net, in fact. Nishikori goes on to break when the Spaniard miscues on a volley.

"A little bit dangerous today,'' said Nadal, who meets Karlovic in the quarterfinals. "I felt when I am running, I can't stop because I felt every time if I stop, I'm gonna (fall).''

Until then, Nadal was getting out of trouble using his serve, just as he did at the French Open. The 18-year-old Nishikori impressed with his good hands, movement, and variety, and as Nadal acknowledged, he's a thinker. His forehand can be explosive, although his backhand is steadier. Nishikori is also a competitor, evidenced by the frustration on his face when he missed and his hand shake at the net. He wasn't just happy to get a set.

Nishikori, outside the Top 100, said he wants to climb into the Top 50 by the end of the season; Nadal insisted he'll be in the Top 5 down the road.

The crowd enjoyed it – Nishikori got a rousing ovation as he left the court.

Maybe the ball kids have a new target.

Re: Kei Nishikori

Kei retired because of abdominal muscular pain
I hope it is not serious.

Re: Kei Nishikori

According to the Japanese news paper report, Kei had the pain after the qualies.
It became worse in the morning practice. He said the pain occurred gradually, and the last 2 and three game against ToJo were painful.
He thinks he can manage to treat before the start of Wimbledon.
Good luck, Kei
