Nishikori played some really aggressive stuff in the first set to break Berdych twice, and he's just taken the second set; 7-5,6-4 win.
Didn't catch the second but really excellent result for Kei to beat the second seed in front of his home crowd.
Really hoping for a Murray/Nishi final.
YES! Nishikori to the semi-finals! Either Nishikori or Baghdatis will go to the finals, two of my favorite players.
11 PM EST tonight, it should be on streams, including Sky, which is very good:
 Andy Murray (GBR)
 Milos Raonic (CAN)
Spot on, as expected.
Raonic/Nishikori, as Raonic showed a new all-court game with Tipsy; it'd be more spectacular.
does anyone know what time beijing finals start either day and time china or us east?
just checked ticket info...day session (only session i believe) starts noon chinese time sunday so midnight us east....but what order?... i assume men's singles second or third so maybe 4 in the morning, ugh...thinking ahead to tsonga-joker..these asian tournaments are even more brutal than oz, but everyone around the world suffers at some point...thing is, i don't have tennis channel right now, so no dvr
11PM EST for Murray/Raonic.
12:30AM EST for Tsonga/Lopez.
I think these are the only two matches I will catch, and possibly the finals.
Lopez quits because he was receiving a beating.
No surprise for us, as this has been the kind of advice continuously sent from these corners.
But great to see it working and him convinced about it.

Good God, it disgusts me to see those guys suck up to the "modern era".
Guy who knows Baghdatis saying that "he used to be a big hitter around 2006, not so much now". :lol: Blake made him look like a pusher, not even mentioning Gonzalez, Safin etc
Baghdatis is getting cooked faster than cup noodles ooh
Kei is playing quite ridiculously.
Kei looking strong. Will win honour for his family.
Pretty good draw for Raonic in Shanghai
shots at Tsonga, Berdych (QF), Djokovic, Federer (in order)
Hahaha nice post!!
Two "others" in the Japan final.
Feli quit because he had a wrist injury. Don't troll.
Of course I'm happy that Raonic has booked a trip to the Tokyo final, but I'm also thrilled for Nishikori that he's also in the final of his home tournament.
I'll be cheering for Raonic but won't be too upset to see Nishikori win.
UNIQLO should be pleased.
Gosh, what happened to Raonic in the 3rd set? He got bagelled! What happened to his serve? How come he didn't win at least some service games with it? Did it collapse completely? :shock:
The dance with the ball kids after China open trophy presentation was really forced on Djok, he didn't want to do it (jaded by this time of the season, perhaps?) and the host wouldn't take no for an answer:
