Kei Nishikori has sights set on winning Grand Slam title

first_img Kei Nishikori RELATED PHOTOS A career-threatening wrist injury left Japanese tennis’ top male player fighting the fear that he may never again find himself among the world’s best.But after clawing his way back to the top, Kei Nishikori says he again has his sights set on a Grand Slam title. GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES “I was scared. The wrist is needed in tennis. I just kept thinking I would always have to play with this feeling of anxiety,” Nishikori told Kyodo News in a recent interview in Tokyo.“I went without surgery but I was told there was a possibility that it might happen again,” he said. “I kept playing with my major goal being a return (to the top of the rankings). I had a feeling throughout this season that I was climbing a staircase, one step at a time.”Amazingly, by the end of the 2018 season, the 28-year-old Nishikori almost reached the penthouse, but it was not easy to scale the rankings back to the world’s top 10.“I was able to bring the level of my tennis up to 100 percent in the second half (of the season),” said Nishikori, who slid to a low of No. 39 in the world as, via a second-tier tour, he battled back from the injury that kept him off the court for five months.“I played without pressure this year. I was able to take a full swing at tennis, but I know I need to aim higher next year,” he said.Nishikori made his competitive return in January after suffering a ruptured tendon in his right wrist in the summer of 2017.Doctors who assessed the injury, which the player thought may end his professional career, recommended he go under the knife, but Nishikori resisted.Instead, he opted for rehab, but said it was a difficult time in which he was unable to find inner peace.When he returned, his struggles were still not behind him.Nishikori lost to a qualifier at an ATP Challenger Tour event, stirring concerns that the former world No. 4 had perhaps returned too early.But, by season’s end, Nishikori had risen to No. 9 in the rankings and booked a spot in the season-ending ATP Finals which features the top eight singles players. He said the comeback was evidence he can not only bounce back, but can improve after a crisis.“I played at the net more this season and was able to pull off more aggressive plays,” he said. “Getting injured gave me the opportunity to re-examine some small things like my serves. I trained well during the layoff, so I’m in good physical shape.”Nishikori said he had “ups and downs” during the first half of the season and couldn’t play at 100 percent, however, he was finally able to turn the corner at the U.S. Open.In the final Grand Slam of the year, Nishikori beat Marin Cilic in five sets to set up a semifinal meeting with Novak Djokovic, before losing in straight sets to the top-ranked Serbian.It was Nishikori’s best Grand Slam result of the year following a quarterfinal run at Wimbledon.Nishikori reached three finals and three semifinals on the world tour, finishing runner-up to Rafael Nadal at the Monte-Carlo Masters and being beaten by Daniil Medvedev and Kevin Anderson in the finals of the Japan Open and Vienna Open, respectively.The season also saw a new generation of players make some bold statements, none more so than 21-year-old Alexander Zverev who won last month’s ATP Finals, where Nishikori opened with a straight-sets win over Roger Federer before failing to advance after two group stage losses.But the Japanese star says he has the experience required to allow him to fend off the young up-and-comers while competing against the world’s established stars, adding luck may also guide him along the way.“I have gained a lot in terms of experience,” he said. “I’ll prepare as I always do so I can take advantage of my chances when they happen. Luck is important.”Nishikori said he is also eyeing the 2020 Summer Olympics, when sport’s biggest show returns to Tokyo in less than two years, hoping to add to his bronze medal won at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games.“It’s special that it will take place in Japan. It’s pretty rare to come across it,” he said. “I want to get stronger and compete in good condition.”First, however, he wants to add a major title to his collection this year, he said.“I want to gun for my best, as I always have, and win a Grand Slam title or a Masters title. That is my goal.” center_img Kei Nishikori competes against Kevin Anderson during the Paris Masters on Nov. 1.

Chief Roehl warns of phone scam

first_imgNo one is soliciting funds on behalf of the La Follette Police Department.  That’s according to LPD Chief Bill Roehl.  Roehl tells WLAF, “We’ve recently received a couple of calls where the caller is soliciting funds on behalf of police, and that this appears to be a scam.”  The Chief goes on to explain that the caller tells its potential victim that he is from Alexandria, Virginia.  However, the number they have used is the local area code, 423.He believes they are spoofing telephone numbers which means they are causing the telephone network to indicate to the receiver of a call that the originator of the call is a station other than the true originating station.  Chief Roehl adds that when he tried to call the phone number in question that it answers with a tone much like a fax machine.The Chief and his officers are not aware of any national soliciting funding for law enforcement.  He urges that if you get such a call to simply hang up.

24 year old confirms PL approaches, Newcastle United only English club…

first_imgPatrick Erras is closing in on a summer transfer, report Bild. The 24 year old defensive midfielder is currently at FC Nurnberg, a club he joined in 2007 when still a child. He came through the ranks, but with a season left on his contract after this one, an exit is an increasing possibility.Erras himself is quoted by the German newspaper as saying: “I can confirm that clubs from the Premier League and the Bundesliga have already approached my advisor. But my first contact will always be the club.”The only English club named by Bild is Newcastle United.Rafael Benitez’s side have been watching the player ‘for weeks’, but there’s no confirmation the approach has come from newcastle, although that seems to be the suggestion.In March 2016 the player suffered a cruciate ligament rupture, which left him out of action for almost a year. It’s explained that before that knee injury, ‘many’ clubs were interested in signing him.Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen were ‘ready to spend well over €10m’, but the price is now thought to be around €5m.That’s easily reachable for Newcastle United.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
