Nishikori Routs Chardy To Return To Brisbane Final

09 January 2019

Andy Murray's winning start to 2019 came to a halt at the Brisbane International as he was beaten 7-5 6-2 by Daniil Medvedev in their second-round meeting.

But Nishikori, who had lost nine consecutive ATP finals over 52 tournaments in almost three years, broke the Russian player's serve on four consecutive points in the final game to clinch the match in just 2 hours, 6 minutes, at Pat Rafter Arena.

"The way he's serving, I'm just going to try to be present and if he have my chances, I needed to take it", Medvedev said.

"I think today was probably one of the most flawless matches I've ever played in my career", said Vekic.

The match then continued to go her way when Tsurenko rolled her ankle while down 1-0 in the third set.

Spacey Appears In Court For Sexual Assault Case Involving Busboy In Nantucket
Spacey said he had no memory of the event, but publicly apologised before issuing an "absolute" denial of all other allegations. A judge denied Spacey's bid to avoid appearing in person Monday at Nantucket District Court.

"If I'm being really frank, I just feel like I had like the worst attitude today", the 21-year-old Osaka said. "Serve and return was phenomenal", Nishikori said.

Nishikori also moved around the court well, his speed not noticeably affected by the injuries that hampered him a year ago.

Tsonga staved off break points in the next game and then really found his groove, high-fiving the crowd after a nifty one-handed backhand victor from deep in the court.

"Physically and tennis-wise I think it was ideal".

Medvedev, who beat Nishikori in the 2018 Tokyo final, was bidding for a 4th career title.

The only winning team with a clear path to Harper is the Dodgers after they traded away Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig. Nightengale said that rival teams believe that Philadelphia will offer the most for both free agents.

No. 4 seed Medvedev fought back to win 6-7 (2), 6-3, 6-4, saving all eight break points while also making better use of his opportunities.

"I was sulking a little bit, and like there are moments that I tried not to do that".

In women's singles, Czech tennis star Karolina Pliskova battled past Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 in the final clash to clinch her second Brisbane International title.

"It's going to be a big lesson for me, and I'm trying to stay positive". "So I think like that was sort of my main problem today".

But the smile on the Japanese world number nine's face while holding the Brisbane International trophy aloft told just how important the victory was.
