Kei Nishikori disappointed for skipping exhibition match with Roger Federer

Kei Nishikori will not be able to play with Roger Federer in an exhibition match organized by Uniqlo on Monday October 14 in Tokyo. The Japanese is taking a break from the competition in order to make his body recover. "My injuries are not so serious.

I played feeling painful over the last two months. I was told to take a break. Feeling elbow pain makes you nervous. I have been playing every match feeling painful since the French Open. I was patient but now I have to take care about my body.

As soon as i get healed, I will play in Vienna", said Nishikori. On his sleeping routines, the former world No. 4 added: "I sleep well. In the past I slept for 12 or 13 hours, but now less. I always want to sleep for ten hours.

I always liked sleeping, it's like a hobby, so I want to sleep wherever I am because my body can recover. I also like taking care about myself and eating. That's something very important for an athlete." Federer spoke about possibly playing the Olympics: "It's still one year away so I do not know if I will play there.

We will think about what's better for me and my family. The Olympics I have played in have been really unbelievable so far. I was the flag standing bearer, I met my wife in 2000 Sydney, I won a gold medal in 2008 Beijing doubles, a silver medal in 2012 London.

Playing Olympics is a possibility. I just have to think about my family, schedule, my body and the future so I do not really know if I will be there."
