Japanese tennis player Kei Nishikori shared his impressions of the victory in Brisbane. “Winning this tournament gives me a lot of emotions. It is for these moments that I play. I try to win every final. I had a great match with Dimitrov, and in the final there was a great game again. I’m sure Daniil will be in the Top soon -ten. I always start the season in Brisbane, and then I play in Melbourne, but last year I failed. I had to start the year on “Challengers”. Of course, this time the season started much better. Matches with top level rivals always motivate me. I am glad that I am healthy and demonstrate excellent tennis. Glad to be playing so cool now. In the second set I began to wait too much and did not use the available chances. With the score 4/3, Daniil played great. He risked, and it bore fruit. It is necessary to give him his due. In the third set, I began to enter the court more often. When I realized that I needed to do something to win, I was able to make adjustments to my game. I began to act better at the reception. This was the decisive moment. I sent the ball deeply from the ball and this put pressure on the opponent, “the Tour press service quotes Kei.
