What a performance by Kei. One of the best he's had in a while. How about all those serve-and-volley points? Also was hitting his forehand at 80 mph, harder than in Shanghai and Paris against the Swiss.

WTF RR: [7] Nishikori def. [2] Federer, 7–6(4), 6–3

Federer still doesn't have a single Top 10 win since beating Dimitrov in Rotterdam 9 months ago

This also dashes Fed's hopes of getting YE #2

:haha:

Federer got the easiest group possible and he still lost and got destroyed by Nishikori in straight sets. :spit:

Nishikori is so much better than Federer and I’m so happy he showed it :dance:

Nishikori in push mode+his personality (or lack thereof) is the most unwatchable player in the top 20. Just horrible that he's almost certain to get through now.

Federer is god-awful, just ridiculous how bad he is since that IW choke

Well look at that. Pish got the job done. Level-wise this match was atrocious from both. Pish pushed endlessly with the forehand, alternating between moonballs and hard strikes. Great strategy to be honest. Those S&V points at the end were telling. Fed couldn't hit a barn.

Federers backhand was pretty pathetic, not one of his best performances.

Awful match from both. Nishikori only deserved the win, because he showed a bit of good tennis in the second.

Federer was not at his best, to put it mildly :speakles:
