Nishikori set for ATP Fi­nals test af­ter bounc­ing back from slump

The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - SPORT -

LON­DON: Kei Nishikori said Fri­day he was "lucky" to be at the ATP Fi­nals af­ter claw­ing his way up the rank­ings fol­low­ing a lengthy in­jury lay-off to reach for the elite eight-man event in Lon­don.

The Ja­panese player qual­i­fied for the tour­na­ment, which starts at the O2 arena on Sun­day, as a re­sult of the with­drawal of Juan Martin del Potro due to a right knee in­jury.

"Lucky for me," he said. "I couldn't re­ally see that hap­pen­ing at the be­gin­ning of the year. Maybe un­til Monte Carlo I was play­ing ter­ri­bly and didn't feel like I had any con­fi­dence and I wasn't play­ing good ten­nis at that time." - AFP
