Kei Nishikori opens up on importance of having good support

Kei Nishikori talks about the importance of having good support

2014 US Open finalist Kei Nishikori says he couldn’t have achieved his dreams on his own and that’s why he’s trying to help younger players as much as he can. Nishikori, 32, spoke in the role of a Uniqlo ambassador. “I couldn’t have been alone who I am now.

At the beginning (of my tennis career) my parents helped me a lot, they let me move to the USA, then in the USA people around me, coaches, coaches supported me, even my rivals sometimes motivated me in a way like i should be thankful.

Many people were involved in my life, that’s what makes me what I am now. I grew up around professional players, learning from them without any verbal instruction, so I want to leave the kids with everything I can give them and hope that by watching me they will learn something.”

Nishikori did not play any tournaments in 2022

After undergoing hip surgery in January, Nishikori was hoping to return to the start of the North American hard-court swing.

Nishikori was scheduled to play at the Winston-Salem Open this week. Nishikori, who accepted a main draw wildcard at Winston-Salem in July, returned his wildcard to tournament organizers. Most recently, Nishikori accepted a wildcard for the San Diego Open, which begins September 19.

“I want to thank the San Diego Open ATP 250 for the wild card. It’s exciting to have the opportunity to come to a beautiful city like San Diego and play at the Barnes Tennis Center. I heard so many great things about last year’s tournament.

The players said the Stadium Court is very beautiful and the fans are fantastic. I’m really looking forward to playing this event in September,” Nishikori said in a released statement. Nishikori registered for the San Diego Open last year but skipped the tournament. Barring one setback, Nishikori will be making his debut in San Diego this year.
