Kei Nishikori, the out-thinker, is a true gladiator and the US Open, his favorite arena

He fought til the end. He never gave up, never cracked under pressure. A final needs an official winner, this is the rule, and well, this time in Flushing Meadows, Cilic did it. His aces were just cannonball shots.

But Kei won a lot during the US Open Grand Slam and especially during the final game: first Asian to reach the semi-finals and all the more the final of a Grand Slam, first Japanese within the ATP top 10, first player to defeat n°6, n°4 and n°1 players in a row during one tournament. And this final is another breaking news itself: none of the top 5 tennis superstars played it.

What’s more is that Nishikori won a worldwide recognition. His endurance and his speed are 2 threatening weapons for the games to come. Kei Nishikori, the trend setter of a new tennis era? It seems so! TAG Heuer is thrilled to be his partner.

Congratulations to Kei Nishikori
