Nishikori knocked out of Mex­ico ten­nis

The Pak Banker - - MARKETS/SPORTS -

Kei Nishikori, who was com­ing off a ti­tle run at Mem­phis less than two weeks ago, bombed out of the Abierto Mex­i­cano Tel­cel, los­ing 6-4, 63 to Sam Quer­rey. Quer­rey ad­vances to his third straight ATP Tour quar­ter-fi­nal where he will face Amer­i­can teenager Tay­lor Fritz.

It is the first time in four tour­na­ments this sea­son that Ja­pan's Nishikori has not reached at least the quar­ter­fi­nals.

"It's al­ways hard when you play against good play­ers, but it wasn't my day to­day," the se­cond seeded Nishikori said. "There were many things that I should do bet­ter, es­pe­cially my serve. "I wasn't ag­gres­sive enough to beat Sam to­day. Also he was hit­ting re­ally big serves so there weren't many chances for my re­turn game."
