He strikes again. Took out Berdych 7-5 6-4 just a sec ago in Tokyo.
nice win for kei, he's now 3-1 against berdych.
should be a great match against marcos in the SF... pame marcos !!!
yeap i feel the same !!! it will be a great match
i hope marcos will snap the victory
Berdych skalp doesnt count
only if they can find the 2nd man in japan, they would win it all in Davis cup
Go Soeda has markedly improved. Maybe he's the guy you're looking for.
Another good win for Nishikori, I guess his style isn't everyone's cup of tea. It isn't mine at least.
No he is not. other than Kei, they all choke in big matches. perfect example is 2 weekends ago in davis cup.
Nishikori to crack into the top 10 anytime now...
I love nishikori, wish I could watch him more.
If nishikori can cut out some unnecessary losses, he could be top 10
I feel that injuries is his main problem. Every year he seems injured at one of the slams.
I got to watch Nish warm up and stood right next to him. He is pretty undersized..more than I thought he would be. That could be an issue in slams as I think he has to grind his points a little more and loses steam in the later sets.
Kei reminds me a lot of Djokovic, very agile, very good mover, similar techniques. I think Kei can be top 5 if he stays healthy, he's a remarkable player who has the ability to stun and shock, like when he won his first title in Delray Beach beating Blake in the final and the win over Ferrer at the US Open on Armstrong in five sets. Those were amazing wins. Kei has the capability to defy logic and amaze.
He is talented but too short for a tennis player. top ten material, but will probably never win bigger tournaments. I like his movement and court coverage.
Japan used to be a huge and promising market for tennis back in the 70´s and 80´s...it would be good that Nakashori could help to get back to it.
Oh, he booted the Birdman out? Very nice.
I saw his interviews before the tournament -- I know he wanted to do well during the Asian swing. Rafa said he had the skills to be a Top Ten player.
How do you say "Vamos!" in Japanese?
Nishikori is lightyears ahead of friggin Monaco in talent, why isn't he in his place as #10?
First of all, whether one agrees with your comment or not -- which has some questionable assumptions embedded, the answer could lie in one or all of the following:
- longevity of career/experience
- concentration abilities
- opponents faced
- surface specialty (ies)
I mean, there are a lot of reasons why a given player isn't in a given place, and they have as much to do with who else is surrounding that player in the rankings as they do with the player himself.
LOL. Thank you very much.
Because Monaco wins Clay Titles...those obscure ones. Where it all grind between ranking under top 20. Yes Monaco won a Hard Court title last week....that was with a weak draw.
Nishikori loves the fast surfaces where his ball can get pace where his short build lacks. Tokyo is medium fast surface that suits him.
ATP video....has an awesome point with Nishikori vs Berdych match. That point is the best of the tournament....Nishikori was Rafalike there.
Nishkori will be top ten one and he is as overrated as Milosh. Yet more talented than the other young guys.
I would take Kei over Ryan, Tomic, Sock, Milosh, Dolgopolov and Berankis.
Actually it's ikou or ike. formal: ikimashou!
That is wrong. ware ware does not equal vamos.
It should be Yossha
I don't think it's any of those. The Japanese equivalent of come on, vamos, and allez is yossha.
he has a huge forehand.
It's actually yosh(i).
EEEE -- KEEHHH!
Yoshi is another alternative. There was a thief who shouts yossha after stealing a car. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTbh4NOlQRQ
I also heard a Japanese player shout yossha and yoshi before as well. I would need to watch Japanese tennis videos on you youtube again to make sure because it has been a while since I watched a Japanese tennis match.
Shaa might be another alternative as well. I think I heard that in Prince Of Tennis.
Are you a native speaker or a N1, N2, or N3 level (Japanese Language Proficency Test)?
Like, ohmigod, totally dude!! And it's a real shame that other short guys like Connors, Borg and Agassi never went anywhere because of their height.
And you know who else was too short for a tennis player? Some nobody named Laver.
Nope. I wish though. I just happen to know a couple of Japanese guys. They grew up here but still speak and write in their native tongue.
And you know what!?! It's 2012!
Who cares how tall or short you are? His power is ridiculous.
Agassi won slams fairly recently.
True, tennis is as much or more about court coverage shot placement and mental toughness as it is about height and power... Besides there are things short guys can do to get similar results to power like hugging the baseline and taking the ball on the rise.
Agassi was the best possibly ever at this, and Davadynko(sp) was also awesome at this its just a shame he fell apart in the big moments against Federer so many times
Very impressive tourney for him
Nah Ledwix is right. I've watched a few japanese series so I'm quite sure. And:
EDIT: But I think Yossha is also correct
haha, probably don't want to yell yossha out when trying to urge someone on after they get aced/lose a point... it's like to saying "nice job" after someone trips when they're walking lol Yossha & yoshi in the context of games mean "good" or "skillful", and it's used when someone does something well.
