great match to watch, easy on the eyes.
Loads of amazing points.

Im loving every second of this ATP Copa Claro

Also.. Kei is such a nice guy! He is very friendly

Just one or two years ago, Ferrero was still the undisputed king of the South American clay swing.

Good win for Nishi. Always annoying when my two favourites meet 1st round.

Hopefully this result won't get JCF down. No shame losing to an in-form top 20 opponent.

Nishikori will reach top 10 soon.And he need to add more TNT into his serve.

I don't consider it in terms of ranking, he was a couple times ranked much more lower but every time after an injury and losing of previous year's points.

He has lost six consecutive tournament matches. Admittedly he had a similar streak two years ago but after that was the best at the South American swing. Now, with defeats to Mayer and Nishikori (well, Top 20 player but playing first ATP event in South America) his confidence must be really low, and it's tough to expect he will go far in Acapulco where the draw is even more demanding than in Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires.

Now that Davis Cup awards ranking points you can't exclude his win. Every year is different. Just because he had a great South American run two years ago doesn't mean it's always his strongest part of the season. In fact traditionally it was one of his weaker months.

Losing to Mayer and Nishikori is nothing compared to losses he's had in the European clay swing to much lower ranked players. The only real suspicion here is that he's 32 years old when critics always question motivation. Every losing streak is hyped ten fold because of age.

Good for Kei, not all that bad for Juanqui.

That's right but Davis Cup rubbers are different than tournament matches, in some sense favors experienced players, who were involved in so many long battles that know very well how to spread energy throughout a best of five match, besides this it's a different mind-set I guess, when you can give everything you've got knowing that the next day you will be resting, in Ferrero's case in that match against Kukushkin it was actually a matter to give everything during the weekend just in that particular rubber.
