Nishikori Hopes to Progress in the French Open

Kei Nishikori

Japan’s Nishikori knows what he needs to reach the most possible point at the French Open, but it may be easier to act.

“You have to really focus and relax at the same time,” said Nishikori, smiling after a 7-6, 6-4, 6-3 victory over Frenchman Maxim Janvier.

The 19-year-old believes, he is in a remarkable state perhaps in a way that could lead him to a better finish than his 2014 champion at the US Open.

“I feel like I’m in almost perfect shape,” he told reporters, “I think I have had a good preparation period and have played two fantastic matches before coming here.”

“So I feel that I am in a state of great physical and artistic well, yes, I have to stay strong at the level of my mind during the tournament, two weeks is not a short period.”
