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."
