Nishikori Routs Chardy To Return To Brisbane Final

As the highest remaining seed in a high-quality draw in Brisbane after world No2 Rafael Nadal pulled out, Nishikori beat world No16, Daniil Medvedev, one of the brightest young prospects on the tennis scene, in a seesawing two hours, 6-4, 3-6, 6-2.

"I felt like in the second set I was a little bit, like waiting too much and I couldn't convert all the chances I had", the Russian said.

He showed all the qualities of a top five player in his 66-minute demolition at the Pat Rafter Arena.

Medvedev came back from 0-3 down in the first set then saved two set points in the first set tiebreak before running away with the second.

The other semi-final will be contested by Naomi Osaka and Lesia Tsurenko after the US Open champion managed to grind out a three-set win over Anastasija Sevastova while the Ukrainian dispatched Anett Kontaveit in straights.

"I don't know what really changed at 5-4", Tsurenko said.

However, Nishikori is renowned for his ability to return serve and play from the baseline, and so it proved here, as he broke back, and then broke again, to claim the first set 6-6.

"Even if I lost today, I think I was very confident, and some of the matches I played some of the best [players]".

"He played like a top 10 player tonight and I gave him a fight".

In addition, both women had to play their semis on championship day due to rain: Sabalenka beat Wang Yafan, 6-2, 6-1, while Riske beat two-time Major finalist, 34-year-old Vera Zvonareva, who retired due to a hip injury, 6-1, 4-2 down.

"It's going to be a big lesson for me, and I'm trying to stay positive".

"This helpless feeling I have, I think today I learned what I have to do to, not fix it, but what I can do to improve the situation so there aren't many moments that I feel like that", the Japanese added. "So hopefully this isn't a recurring thing".
