Great run at RG this year... enjoy the day Kei... next round against King of Clay Rafa Nadal


Kei Nishikori becomes the first Japanese man since 1938 to reach the fourth round at Roland Garros.





NISHIKORI MAKING STRIDES

Paris, France

by ATP Staff | 01.06.2013

World No. 15 Kei Nishikori will face Nadal in the quarter-finals after recording a landmark victory. Nishikori became the first Japanese man since 1938 to reach the fourth round at Roland Garros when he defeated France’s Benoit Paire 6-3, 6-7(3), 6-4, 6-1.

"He's a big talented player," said Nadal. "I know how hard it is to come back after an injury. He had an important injury in the past, and he's back and he's at his highest ranking. He's playing great, having very good results. He won a very tough match against Paire. Always I play with big respect against Kei. He's a fantastic player. He can play very aggressive."

Nishikori, who is already the highest-ranked Japanese player in the history of the Emirates ATP Rankings, will look to reach his second Grand Slam quarter-final, having also reached the last eight at the 2012 Australian Open (l. to Murray). Against Nadal, Nishikori will look to overturn a 0-4 deficit in their FedEx ATP Head2Head series.

"I'm happy to create another [piece of] history and happy to break another record," said Nishikori. "I hear at almost every tournament, if I do well, I'm making another [piece of] history or they say in 30 or 40 years [it's the first time this has happened]. But for me, it's almost normal to be here. I'm happy to be in the last 16 for the first time, so hopefully I can do well."

Playing Paire for the second time, Nishikori hit 27 winners and benefitted from 64 unforced errors from his French opponent. The 23 year old broke serve in the 10th game of the third set to take the lead and raced through the fourth set to claim victory in two hours and 41 minutes.

"Kei played very good," said Paire. "Today I didn't feel good on court. I didn't serve very well. For him it's good, because on second serve he can be aggressive every time. I didn't play good, and for him it was easy."

Since 1938! Wow that's amazing, thanks TNX1.0E6TOPCA
I really agree with you, hope Kei enjoy every moment until his next round against the big boss

Game over for Kei at the 2013 French open, highlight for me is that he got thru to the 4th round to play the boss on centre stage!
He did had the rare bpts opportunity but didn't take my advice on any of them lol
Still a lot more to look forward to for the rest of the tennis season.

Default Grass court season comes

http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2013/500/mds.pdf

Halle draw and his section


Philipp Kohlschreiber (6) - Carlos Berlocq
Tobias Kamke - Lukasz Kubot
Mikhail Youzhny - Daniel Gimeno-Traver
Bye - Kei Nishikori (4)

Florian Mayer (8) - Qualifier
Jan-Lennard Struff (WC) - Leonardo Mayer
Jurgen Melzer - Qualifier
Bye - Richard Gasquet (2)

It's very tough draw for a seeded player. Youzhny, Kohli, Gasquet, and F Mayer are good on grass.

He lost against Youzhny 3 sets and also doubles

Next week will play at excision against Murray and Tsonga. Both of them on grass are very difficult match.
Does his best

He had a few chances, but honestly Youzhny was just playing better.
Incidentally, they also faced each other in doubles which Youzhny's team won as well.

Default Re: Voyage to the Roland Garros crown + Grass season 2013

Wimbledon draws

1R Ebden

2R Bedene/L Mayer

3R Seppi/Istomin/Llodra/Nieminen (Its section is unpredictable)

4R Del Potro


Delpo section again I hate this

Ebden is tricky opponent because he could win against him from 0-2 in 2012 AO.
However Kei becomes more stronger. Hopefully he can win easily

2R, if he gets Bedene, it'll be interesting match.

Thanks Kiriri!
The first round is interesting, hope Kei can win without going to 5 sets this time.
3R Seppi/Istomin/Llodra/Nieminen (Its section is unpredictable) - I think Istomin is the the least threatening here, followed by Seppi.

Yeh Del Potro will be very tough for Kei, even though he just recently returned from injury.
Can't believe its the 3rd slam of the year already, go Kei!

Nice article on ATP World Tour website... Nishikori hopes to crack the Top 10 by the end of the 2013 season


THE CHAMPIONSHIPS 2013

NISHIKORI EYES TOP 10 BY YEAR END

Wimbledon, England

by ATP Staff | 22.06.2013


World No. 11 Japan’s Kei Nishikori is already the highest-ranked ATP World Tour player from Asia since Thailand’s Paradorn Srichaphan, but he’s eyeing a Top 10 finish by the end of the season.

“Hopefully I can finish [in the] Top 10. I'm getting close, but I feel [like] I have a lot of things to work on,” the 23 year-old Nishikori told journalists at the All England Club on Saturday. Srichaphan reached a career-high of No. 9 a decade ago.

The Bradenton resident, whose best result at Wimbledon was a third round appearance in 2012 (l. del Potro), is hoping to accumulate points by reaching the quarter-finals or semi-finals this year.

“If I can do it, it would be great,” said Nishikori, who is seeded 12th and in the same quarter as fourth seed David Ferrer and eighth seed Juan Martin del Potro. A string of victories would boost his record on grass, which currently sits at 13-14, giving him a FedEx ATP Reliability Index on the surface of 0.481.

Japan’s No. 1 begins his campaign against Australian wildcard Matthew Ebden. The pair have met once before, with Nishikori recovering from a two-sets-to-love deficit to claim victory. Ebden, ranked 110, earned a wildcard by winning his first ATP Challenger Tour title in Nottingham earlier this month.

In the lead-up to Wimbledon, Nishikori contested the Gerry Weber Open in Halle (l. Youzhny) and played exhibition matches against World No. 2 Andy Murray and World No. 5 Rafael Nadal.
