Re: Acapulco F: [2] Ferrer def. [1] Nishikori, 6-3 7-5

*sigh* Rough match. Fair to say this is easily the worst performance of kei's year so far. It's unfortunate it had to happen in a final of a 500 event.

I don't think I would have been so upset if...

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 3

I just can't stop smiling at this. Ferrer just doesn't have what it takes to put this away. Simon is playing fantastic change of pace attacking shots while expending minimal energy.

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread Vol. 1

Is this pretty tennis? No. Is it very effective tennis? Extremely. This is probably the best tennis Milos Raonic has ever played. He's executing his gameplay extremely well

Re: US Open Final: Marin Cilic def Kei Nishikori 6-3 6-3 6-3

Even as a Nishikori fan, gotta hand it to Cilic. He was just simply too good. Cilic serve was overwhelming, depth and pace of groundstrokes was phemonenal, movement and retrieving was the best...

Re: AO R4: Nadal [1] def. Nishikori 7-6, 7-5, 7-6

In the matches before, Kei would have probably had a competitive 1st set, semi competitive 2nd set, and just a 3rd set tank.

It seems in such a short time, Michael Chang has vastly improved...

Re: 2014 Live commentary thread

4th rd of a major. Chang vs Lendl, World #1, down 2 sets, but fights back.

Anyone see the resemblance?

Kei has come a long way in mental fortitude! Get the set!

Re: AO R3: (16) Nishikori def. Young 7-5 6-1 6-0

Tight first set with Young playing very solid, but Nishikori upped his game when he was down 5-3 with Young serving for the set. He was clutch at so many points in the first set, pulling out...

Re: 2014 Live commentary thread vol2

Thought Nishikori was the one calling the MTO. Instead it was Young. Usually it would be Nishikori doing it =p, especially when he's ahead

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Nishikori seems to have beefed up his first serve. He's hitting the 190's much more often while consistently in the180's. Of course his first serve percentage isn't stellar, but good to see he's...

Re: Montreal R2: (9) Nishikori def. Seppi 4-6 7-5 6-1

Nishikori really has a bad habit of losing the first set marginally, having a late charge in the second set to barely win it, and just destroying his opponents in his third. Not good for his stamina,...

The Laureus sports awards are mainly dominated by the bigger international sports so really any smaller sports have very little chance of having a nomination.

Re: WWW ATP Delray Beach 2013

Karlovic will be a tough one for kei. I know he beat raonic's serve but the last time he faced karlovic in Davis cup didn't end well. Tough first round unless he brings his return A game

Re: Memphis SF (5) Kei Nishikori vs Marinko Matosevic

Agreed. Kei is the only seeded player left in the draw and this is definitely one of the easiest chances to bag a 500 event with dolgopolov out and raonic going out early. If he fails to win this...

Re: Memphis rd 1: (5) Nishikori def Marchenko 6-4,7-5

Kei's knee is indeed still taped up, picture was taken by his trainer and uploaded to kei's Facebook. I suppose we'll see.

Against Donald next, he really shouldn't lose here

Re: AO R4: Ferrer def. Nishikori 6-2 6-1 6-4

Feel bad for Nishikori, but even though I'm all for Kei, Ferrer was too good today. Nishikori played some good aggressive tennis in the beginning of the 1st set and most of the 3rd set, but Ferrer...

I must say Tomic has really held his nerve and seems to live coming back from 0-30 down and when he's facing breakpoint. Despite Fed's godly backhand cross court flick winner, he produced some...

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

The way Tomic is playing this is fairly impressive so far. He may be down a set but I think he's found his rhythm now. He can definitely produce some pace off his forehand, though his backhand...

Re: AO Rd3: Kei def Donskoy 7-6(3), 6-2 6-3

Tentative first set from Kei but very solid in the 2nd and 3rd. He actually was up 3-0 in the third before Donskoy leveled it at 3-3, though Kei quickly put his foot down and finished the match 6-3...

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Nishikori takes 2nd set 6-2. Had his left knee reinforced with more tape and getting it massaged by the trainer.

He's looking to take it in straights as donskoy doesn't seem to have his heart in it,...
