57% first serve percentage is his average level.Kei looking pretty good today although I don't think he served particularly well. That allowed Bellucci to return Kei's second serves really hard in the 3rd set. Kei should really get his first serve percentage up.
Proving my point that he has all the way getting into the SF.It seems that Nishikori made some absurd shots for important points as well. I don't see many who can straight-set Bellucci in his current form like that. Neither Berdych, nor Wawrinka, nor Roger. Very good sign.
Ive gotta say Nish did very well here. bellucci has been very good lately. Nish, Ferrer and Tsonga are the danger men outside of Nadal/Murray/Djokovic in this tournament.C'mon guys. Weren't you saying that this one smelled the most like an upset in R2? Now that Nishikori routined GOAT Bellucci, just meh?
