Have you ever noticed that the Japanese players (both Nishioka and Nishikori) are able to play brilliant tennis in some matches or in some parts of the matches. To punch his ticket to the final, Yoshihito beat Fernando Verdasco having shown godlike performance in the second and third sets. He is short but stout and managed to apply the same power to the balls as his Spanish opponent did. However, in the third set the Japanese started to decline, while FerVer didn’t make use of the opportunity.
Up to him now is the French player Pierre-Hugues Herbert. He has enjoyed a very good week. His tennis is awesome: almost no mistakes, efficient play from the baseline. But at the same his play on return is very alarming: even de Minaur managed to earn a number of easy points when Herbert failed to return his second serve. So we won’t be surprised at his double fault on match point.
What will decide the outcome now is the Japanese ability to recover. Shall he be totally fit, the French will have no chances against the lefty Asian opponent who will rather die on court than lose it.
However, if Nishioka isn’t at his best, the match will end up like the first set against Verdasco.
