Kei Nishikori had the best year of his career so far as the Japanese icon finished as the World No 5 with 58 wins to his name. In 2016 he was able to win one ATP title and also collect an Olympic medal at the Rio Olympics. However, Nishikori is not settling for this year’s performance and is already targeting a Grand Slam victory for 2017.
“A year that I won most matches does carry some significance but what is important is how much I can win at big tournaments,' Nishikori said. Result-wise this has been my best year. I've played well against the top-10 players and have been winning against the likes of (Rafa) Nadal and (Andy) Murray, who I couldn't beat before.” “I'm making fewer mistakes as I get older.
I hope to keep building, bit-by-bit.' Nishikori said. 'I'm confident I have the ability to challenge for world No 3 and 4, I need to be more cautious while determining which points in the match I have to focus and how I can win break points in a more assured manner.” Source: Daily Mail Also Read: Tim Henman: 'LTA has to capitalise on Andy Murray's success'
