Too easy. Giraldo was totally outclassed.

Congratulations on your first clay title, Kei! :yeah:

NID. Nishikori has been really great in this tournament. It will be interesting to see what he can do in Madrid and Rome and especially in RG.

Giraldo was shit but nice to see Nishikori playing at a consistently high level for three matches in a row.

Now we still have to wait for Mugdrid and Rome before he can start his RG title conquest :zzz:

Nishikori has broken serve 26 times in 47 return games this week (55,3%), that too while facing strong servers like Cilic and Gulbis . One of the best return performances ever over a single tournament for sure. In terms of numbers, the only one I'm sure is better is Nadal's Monte Carlo 2010, but that's more to do with Nadal being impenetrable off the ground on clay in his prime than the quality of his returns.

First clay title for Kei, hope he keeps up this level for the rest of the year :yeah: Hope Giraldo wins a title sometime too, much better player than his ranking suggests.

His performance on clay seemed to be holding him back ranking wise, hopefully this is the start of him actually breaking into the top ten. Great performance regardless :worship:
