Anderson defeats Nishikori in ATP Finals humiliation

Anderson defeats Nishikori in ATP Finals humiliation

"I was not feeling good to play such a match in front of such a big crowd and everything".

Federer broke the Austrian in the third game of the opening set and the first game of the second set.

No.4 seed Anderson won 6-0, 6-1 in just 64 minutes to secure his second win of the week, following his opening victory over Dominic Thiem on Monday.

The Swiss looked confident on his serve, winning 86 percent of the points on his first serve, while Thiem, who lost following two tie-breaks against Kevin Anderson at the weekend, was slightly off his best.

With Nishikori remaining out of sorts with another 10 unforced errors in the second set, Anderson powered ahead to make it 11 games in a row.

"He was hitting the ball really well and it was making me impatient".

Anderson said: 'It's one of the best matches I've ever played.

Thiem, the 2018 French Open runner-up, seemed overwhelmed by the occasion and by the opportunity to hand Federer a second loss that would have bounced him out of this tournament at the round-robin phase for the first time since 2008.

Liverpool still heading in the right direction - Klopp
Fulham's last win against Liverpool came in 2012 when a Martin Skrtel own-goal handed the Cottagers the three points at Anfield. We were in the Champions League final a year ago and that's the last impression, with all the spectacular games and whatever.

"It feels good, I'm very happy I showed a reaction after the last match against Kei", Federer said.

"And I don't think there's a tournament director in the world who is not going to take those factors into account when setting the schedule".

Anderson, the Wimbledon finalist, swiftly completed his 47th win of the season, topping his career-high from 2015. Today was a awful match.

Thursday will see members of Group Lleyton Hewitt fight for their lives to advance to the semi-finals here at the O2 in London, with all four players still in with a shout of qualifying. I had my chances maybe a bit more than he did.

Unfortunately for Nishikori he may just find Thiem in a determined mood to put things right after a shoddy set of performances in London, and he may drop a vital set. "Something was wrong. I've got to fix it tomorrow and try to be positive for the next one".

If Federer looked bad-tempered and off his game in losing to Kai Nishikori on Sunday, Tuesday saw the return of the calm and controlled Federer, who was totally in control of his game.

Anderson is back in London just four months after losing his first Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic, and this was the kind of dominant display that carried him to the title match at the All England Club.
