Japanese Kei Nishikori commented on his victory at the start of the tournament in Dubai.
“It’s always difficult to resist Benoit Paire. He has an excellent serve and backhand. A difficult opponent. The key to success was a protracted game in the first game. Taking it, I felt more confident. But who knows what would happen if he managed to play this break. It was a great match, although it was complicated by the wind. I think I showed excellent tennis, “- quotes Nishikori IOL.
