Things change quickly in tennis, one day at the top, the other at the bottom. Kei Nisikori on Sunday, at the Masters in London, fired Roger Federer, with significant Swiss support, but today the Japanese is against Kevin Anderson just won a game … South Africa was better in 64 minutes by 6: 0, 6: 1.
Kei Nisikori used Federer's really pale appearance on Sunday and won the sign for victory (but he really managed with an extra half line from the baseline), today, Japan was the one who did not find the right rhythm. Just the sight of semaphore was even worse for him, Anderson got the first eleven matches, and Nishikori was even threatened to remain at zero, which has only happened once in the finals. In 2005, Federer hit Shanghai Gastona Gaudia s 6: 0, 6: 0 …
"I will try to forget it as soon as possible. There was something wrong. I do not know why I did not play well, why I made so many mistakes. I just did not know the ball, it was not my day. I hope the training day will correct this and that with the positive feelings I will start the next match,"He hit his head with Nisikorian's head, who matched his worst career defeat – 2008 he was in Stockholm Robin Söderling kicked off 6: 1, 6: 0. The Japanese (he was recently in Paris in two sets better than Anderson) has to compete until Thursday because he is still in the game for promotion, but he must hit the last pre-match duel Dominica Thiema.
Anderson has already been with the Austrian, who today was the perfect champion in the O2 arena and came to the most reliable victory in his career. South Africa's pressure on the rival was constant, he won 12 balls for a break, he easily won his game with excellent services, at the end he gained 66 percentage points. "It was one of my best career matches. I returned the service well, attacker, I did not give away points. My self-esteem only grew, and Keiji went in the other direction. From my point of view, this was a great job, "Was understandably pleased with Anderson, who is stuck in the Lleyton Hewitt group, where he now has another side to Federer, who has only won it so far, but this victory was so cute. It came to Wimbledon this year, there In the quarterfinals he was already 0: 2 in the series, and then he got the fifth from 13:11: "I'm looking forward to the match with Roger, but I'm sure he'll show much more than in the opening appearance. "
Tomorrow there are plenty of promises in the Guga Kuerten group, but in practice it can be seen quite differently. At 3:00 PM, the world's first and fifth players will move and the first and third place in the tournament, Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev. In their mutual attacks they are currently 1: 1, but on solid ground last month in Shanghai Nole was certainly better 6: 2, 6: 1. Serben seems unstoppable and confirmed the status of the first favorite in the match with John Isner (this will be measured tomorrow with Marino Cilic). "I won the game three times on Johns Service, which often seems impossible, but I was in the right place at the right time," said Djokovic, "simple" recipe where Isner's services often appear to be nothing special. very good return.
