Quarter-final of ATP Grand Slam at Wimbledon. This will be an exciting and entertaining match as two of the best players we have today will face off against each other. To have more insights on this ATP Kei Nishikori vs Roger Federer match please check out the preview below.
29 years old 7th ranked Nishikori didn’t have the hardest road up here compared to other quarter-finalists. Japanese just ran over Monteiro, Norrie, and Johnson in straight sets in first 3 rounds. He’s only lost a single set yesterday against Kukushkin, who was playing good tennis overall. However, has never been even somewhat close to a top tier player. Of course, Nishikori is a great player and we can’t take away any of that but the fact is that he got a lot of luck with a draw this time. Well, tomorrow will be the biggest of tests as he will have to face Roger once again.
Nishikori has dropped out of Wimbledon at exactly the same stage last year as he similarly had an easy run until quarter-finals until facing up Djokovic. Even though Nishikori doesn’t have a good H2H record against Federer. He managed to win the last time they met at ATP Finals, London and that’s should inspire Nishikori to try to prove himself once again.
37 years old veteran is currently being ranked 3rd overall. After an intriguing first-round match against G.Harris where Federer gave up a set to his 86th ranked opponent, many people speculated that Swiss is not at his best form. Well, Federer obviously proved them wrong by winning at the next 3 stages against Clarke, Pouille and even Berrettini, who were in incredible form, in straight sets. All of these matches haven’t taken long which means Federer shouldn’t feel that much of fatigue so far. Roger seems to be on another level on fast grounds and tomorrow he’ll have a good chance to come back to semi-finals of Wimbledon which he couldn’t do last year. Federer fell short against Anderson previously in straight sets at Quarter-finals. He will definitely have enough motivation to surpass his previous result.
