Japanese Kei Nishikori commented on his victory over Croatian Ivo Karlovic in Melbourne, despite the fact that the latter has completed 59 aces.
“Matches with Karlovic are not simple. I managed to act well at the reception for the first two sets: read his pitch and hit the ball cleanly. But after the third installment, he began to change punches, while continuing to punch powerfully and clearly.
Of course, you can’t take as many innings. However, I tried not to fill my head with unnecessary thoughts and concentrated on the games in my pitch.
In Australia, I have unrealistic support. Here comes a lot of Japanese and Asians in general. Of all the Grand Slam tournaments here, I like to play the most. I am happy to go out on the court here, “the Australian Open press service quotes Nishikori as saying.
