Kei Nishikori Bio and Stats

Kei Nishikori won his first title in 2008, in Delray Beach, and it took him four years to get his next one (in Tokyo in 2012). In 2014, he made history when he became the first man from an Asian country to reach a Grand Slam singles final. In that final, at the U.S. Open, Nishikori lost to Marin Cilic in straight sets. Later that year he made more history when he became the first man from Asia to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals. Nishikori hits solidly and consistently from both his forehand and backhand sides, and he generally plays from the baseline. Known for his exceptional backhand, he hits powerful ground strokes and is a superb returner. Though his serve isn’t considered weak, it’s not particularly strong, either. But much like the rest of his shots, it’s often consistent and effective.

Nishikori defeated Novak Djokovic in four sets in the 2014 U.S. Open semifinals to reach his first Grand Slam final:
