Kei – Opens doors in Japan

7 Oct

Kei has the key to Japan

Japan’s Kei Nishikori has won his hometown ATP Japan Open after a  3 set defeat of young Canadian gun Milos Raonic. Nishikori, dubbed Project 45 by JTA officials, becomes the first Japanese player to reach, and then win his home event final.

It has been a stellar year for the young Japanese player and he has consolidated a top 20 ranking at #17 currently. Not bad for someone who was outside the top 50 12 months ago and was ranked over 430 toward the end of 2009.

See my blog on Nishikori’s rise to prominence from January 25 this year in the archives section or via this link.

Nishikori has a bright future ahead of him and is truly a STAR in Japan. Watch out for more success from Kei.
