2 down, 3 to go.
I hope what you say is true. Straights for Ferrer and Raonic not easy and if he can do that all the way to the final, would be great for his confidence and healthWith this form, Nishikori should straight-set every player remaining in the tournament. Otherwise, this straight-set victory will be regarded as a fluke, of course.
that smash at 30-15 just a little wide - everything else constructing the pt was great. But yeah tight - crowd also got involved as well, a time violation warning...Nishikori sucks at serving out sets and matches, was on the verge of being broken today again despite coasting on serve all match before that
and Nadal will be fresh yet again while Nishikori will have had to likely endure two titanic battles against 2 top 10ers just to reach Nadal. Draw is rather ridiculous at times...I hope Dimitrov puts in a fair fight.Defending his finals points seems to be concentrating Nishi's mind.
I'd certainly like to see the rematch with Nadal, that was really unfortunate last year.
He loosed his concentration and missed 2 smashes and 1 backhand shot over the net.that smash at 30-15 just a little wide - everything else constructing the pt was great. But yeah tight - crowd also got involved as well, a time violation warning...
