He'll probably lose, but Kei looks fully engaged, pumped, and not resigned to losing, which is half the battle in pulling a big upset vs. someone you rarely beat.

Novak really needs to go back to the drawing board with his passing shots when the opponent is at the net. This is pathetic..

LOL Novak....don't serve out wide to that forehand....you know how Kei is lunging to his right, he is on song with that first step

Djokovic struggling to much on his serve. He should not have to play 7 points almost each game to win his serve.
 

Third Serve

G.O.A.T.
No matter what happens from here, I think this was a good showing by Nishikori. I thought he’d just bend over before the first serve was struck like usual but he’s actually showing some fight here even if Novak is sorta beating himself a bit.

22 UEs on the BH and just 1 winner for Djokovic.

The reason this matchup always favored him is that there used to be nothing Nishikori did better than him. Nowadays he certainly hits better off that side. Considering he is also serving well today, there is a chance for him.

Gotta clean that up.
