Amazing performance. Now go win the title! He's my favourite of the young guns and really hope this is the start of his real rise towards the top 10. Time to stop Milos, who actually would be in a position to challenge for the WTF if he wins this. Kei the more complete player with beautiful strokes to watch - really hope he wins his home title.
Kei's game is most like Novak's when it's on. Beautiful BHDTLs. Loved him being aggressive and attacking the net. He's also pretty fast in his play compared to the Nadals and Djokovics. So happy for him.
This was definitely an uncharacteristic match for Nishi, he's a pretty slow starter in matches but once he gets going, he's a force to be reckoned with.
Although Baghdatis made Nishikori look really good on the returns, I think Nishikori's return game is definitely an underrated part of his game which is why he can handle guys like Tsonga and Berdych pretty well. But of course Raonic is a step up in serve from the aforementioned people, I really hope he brings the same A game he brought today.
