Kyr­gios sets up Nishikori clash

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Con­tro­ver­sial Aus­tralian Nick Kyr­gios swept aside An­dreas Haider-Mau­rer in straight sets yesterday to set up a sec­ond round clash with Ja­pan’s Kei Nishikori in the Shang­hai Mas­ters. The out­spo­ken Aus­tralian, who fired 13 aces and saved all five break points in a 6-3, 6-2 win over his Aus­trian op­po­nent, had no il­lu­sions about the task ahead. “Kei’s one of the best play­ers in the world right now,” said Kyr­gios. “He’s got un­be­liev­able re­turns. He’s a great ath­lete. He’s play­ing well. So I know what I have to do.”
