He is at this moment sitting at his career high ranking of 58 in the world. Top 60!!!
He just beat Tomas Berdych in Indian Wells!
The lefty from Japan had to knockOut the talented Swede Elias Ymer and
then he had to defeat the big serving Dr Ivo Karlovic (The Ace Machine) and
Now he has defeated the Czech Terminator Berdych!
Nishioka is lefty and he is a scrappy-grinder kind of player who just battles and battles to win. He hits lefty kick and lefty slice serves and he hits reverse forehands and hooks. He is like a less-powerful Nadal.
I hope Nishioka can knock out Wawrinka!!! That would be a huge upset!
I have a feeling that Wawrinka came will be too powerful but sometimes Wawrinka has “off” days and Nishioka can win if he is feeling good and “playing hot”
Good job to the young man from Japan!
