YouTube clip on Kei's official site.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2o1B...layer_embedded

And his comment in English on the site:

Quote:
"I am so happy that I won the title today and the way I played. My level of tennis has been improved a lot in these last months with the help of Nick Bollettieri and Glenn Weiner and the staff at the Bollettieri Academy. I was a little nervous before the final because it had been a long time since I had played a match like this. Next is the Sarasota tournament and we will spend the next two days getting ready for this tournament."

From Nick Bollettieri's blog:

http://nickstennispicks.com/2010/05/...inners-circle/

Nishikori back in the winner’s circle

IMG Bollettieri Tennis Academy student, Kei Nishikori, won his first pro tournament since his comeback from an injury by winning the ATP Challenger in Savannah. Kei defeated Ryan Sweeting in the finals 6-4, 6-0 in the finals to win the title. In 2008, Nishikori was named ATP Newcomer of the Year after winning the title in Delray Beach and then reaching the 4th round of the US Open. He then missed a majority of 2009 due to an arm injury, but is finally back and playing well again.

He will probably play his first match at the Sarasota Challenger tomorrow.

Congrats to Kei and good luck this week!

Kei made another long entry in his blog in Japanese (http://blog.keinishikori.com/2010/05/home.html). He really must be happy!
Here's a rough summary ( which by no means is an official or complete translation!!).

He arrived at home after midnight on Sunday. Usually he falls asleep as soon as the vehicle starts, but this time he couldn't sleep at all during the six-hour drive. (...Poor Glenn must have driven their car all the way. lol) He thinks it's because of the adrenalin running; he sometimes can't sleep well after a long match.

On Monday he had light training (stationary bike etc.), massage and a hair cut. His body felt stiff and he's still a bit tired but since he has the next match on Tuesday, he's trying to get ready. He thinks this week will be more about staying fit physically and mentally rather than about tennis. He said he'd be very careful so that his elbow won't go bust again.

Then he looked back on Savannah. As we all thought, he also thinks the second round against James Ward was the turning point. Every point in that match was long and he had to fight for it. By winning this match he thinks he got more confident. And then his shots started flowing deeper and he was able to switch from defence to offence more readily. He felt very nervous on the day of the final. He really wanted to win but he was also really happy just by reaching the final. But when the match started, he could stay calm. Sweeting started better, but gradually Kei became able to take more control of the rallies. He thinks his transition from defence was offence was good again, and in the second set he was able to stay focused and play his best tennis. In a way he's a bit surprised he's already won a tournament because he had thought such a day would be far away. And he hopes that now he has won a tournament, he wants to improve even more. Then he thanked those around him: His team, coach, doctors, trainers, sponsors, family and his fans. He's very thankful that he can play tennis again.

Hey, fellow Kei-enthusiasts! The atp FINALLY has live scoreboards up for challengers, but I'll post significant updates on the match on here for anybody who is interested (although I'm sure I won't be as helpful as bunny has been, great job!).

Kei is up a quick break: 2-0. His 17-year-old opponent is nervous it would appear. Kei won the 8 out of the first 9 points.
