Nishikori vs Nadal by Mgk07

Nishikori
VS
Nadal
Nishikori was outplayed yesterday by Murray in the semis and nothing worked for him in that match.

 

Other than that defeat Nishikori has had perfect tournament during which he played very consistent and aggressive tennis.

 

He is mentally strong player who will not regret too much about semifinal loss.

 

Nadal lost against Del Potro in the best match on this tournament. Everything was decided in the third set tiebreak. But, considering that this is a first tournament for Nadal after injury he has done pretty well.

 

Chances are here very close but looking at the whole tournament in a global then Nishikori has shown bit more and can give bit more than just recovered Nadal.pin

Looking at the whole tournament Nadal has certainly played better than Nishikori. The japanese pulled out a miraculous win against Monfils saving 3 consecutive match points. Considering their head to head, 10 matches and 9 wins for Nadal (4 in hard courts) you got to consider Nadal as a big favorite here. Nishikori has a really solid game, but his style of play simply doesn't fit against Nadal's style or even Murray. It's tough for him to win against these two players who play with a lot of spin in the ball. I would say Nishikori's chances today are on the range of 10-15%.
