Nick Kyrgios and Kei Nishikori face each other on the quarter-finals of the tournament of Mutua Madrid Open.
Nick Kyrgios recording difficult victory over Pablo Cuevas in the third round with a 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-3. The Australian showed more stable game in the third set against Uruguay specialist on clay and earned the place of quarter-finals. Kiryos previously played a very strong match against Stan Wawrinka, beating him with 7-6 (7), 7-6 (2). In the first round the Australian eliminate Guido Pella with 7-6 (7), 6-4.
Kei Nishikori had serious problems since its start in Madrid after being very close to dropping into the second round by Fabio Fognini. Japanese trailing in the third set, but won it and won 6-2, 3-6, 7-5. In the third round Nishikori record easy win over Frenchman Richard Gasquet 6-4, 7-5. Nishikori demonstrated very strong game on clay after the tournament in Barcelona reached the final, but lost to Rafael Nadal in 4-6, 5-7.
In matches between them Nishikori has the advantage after winning both two games. This year Japanese beat his opponent in the semifinals in Miami 6-3, 7-5, and last year beat him in Shanghai with a 1-6, 6-4, 6-4. Nishikori is much more experienced than Kyrgios, broke into the Top 10 and will strive to remain in the top of ATP. I expect the 26-year-old Japanese tennis player to win the match and reach the semifinals of the tournament in Madrid.
