Khachanov Beats Nishikori, Faces Bautista Agut In Halle Quarter-finals

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 5:24am

Russia’s Karen Khachanov recorded his 20th victory of the season on Thursday by beating seventh seed Kei Nishikori of Japan at the Gerry Weber Open for a place in the quarter-finals.

Khachanov overcame Nishikori 6-2, 6-2 for his fifth win over a member of the Top 30 in the ATP Rankings in 2018 and will now challenge fourth seed Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain on Friday. The pair is 1-1 in their FedEx ATP Head2Head series, but have never met before on a grass court.

The 22-year-old Khachanov broke Nishikori’s serve in both the opening and seventh games of each set en route to victory in 78 minutes. He is now 20-12 on the season, which includes his second ATP World Tour title at the Open 13 Provence (d. Pouille).

“I think today I just made too many unforced errors,” said Nishikori. “He was playing well, but nothing special. I think today I couldn't hit [many] good serves and also I should have tried to stay a little bit more on the baseline… Karen hits very flat and he’s not easy to play against on grass.”

Bautista Agut booked a spot in the Halle quarter-finals for the second successive year with a 6-4, 7-5 victory over Robin Haase of the Netherlands in one hour and 35 minutes. The Spaniard won the first of his eight ATP World Tour titles on grass at the 2014 Libema Open (d. Becker).

Bautista Agut took a 3-1 lead in the first set, but was quickly clawed back by Haase. The Spaniard broke to love in the final game, then recovered from 0/40 at 4-4 in the second set and broke Haase again in the 12th game. The 30-year-old also beat Haase 7-6(5) in a third set tie-break en route to the ASB Classic title in the second week of the 2018 season.

Defending Champ Lopez Ousts Goffin At Queen's Club

Tue, 06/19/2018 - 2:01pm

Defending champion Feliciano Lopez got his Fever-Tree Championships title defence off to the best of starts, beating fourth seed David Goffin 6-3, 6-7(7), 6-3 on Tuesday.

The Spanish left-hander defeated Goffin for the first time in four FedEx ATP Head2Head meetings, winning 88 per cent of first-serve points and converting each of his three break point chances throughout the one-hour, 49-minute encounter.

Lopez improves to 21-11 at The Queen's Club and 3-1 on grass this year, after reaching the MercedesCup quarter-finals (l. to Kyrgios) last week. The 31-year-old has won 66 per cent of his grass-court matches, according to his FedEx ATP Win/Loss Record, his best statistic on any surface. Lopez also advanced to the quarter-finals after Canada's Milos Raonic withdrew from the tournament after his first-round win.

Former finalist Raonic was leading 6-1, 3-1, when his Indian opponent, Yuki Bhambri, a qualifier, retired due to injury after 45 minutes. Raonic, the 2016 runner-up (l. to Murray), later in the day withdrew from the tournament with a right shoulder injury, a major personal disappointment following a final run at last week’s MercedesCup (l. to Federer).

"Unfortunately I have sustained a strain to my right pectoral muscle," shared Raonic. "This happened on the second to last point of the match, and as a result I am not able to continue with the tournament. I'm really disappointed as I was playing well and I love this tournament - I have happy memories from reaching the final in 2016 and hoped to do so again. I wish the tournament another successful event, and I hope to be back in top shape and health for Wimbledon."

Leonardo Mayer scored his second career Top 10 win, edging third seeded Kevin Anderson 7-6(4), 4-6, 7-6(3).

Mayer, now 2-29 against Top 10 opposition, withstood 26 aces from the 2015 finalist to snap a three-match losing streak after two hours and 24 minutes. The Argentine, making just his second appearance at The Queen's Club, reduces his FedEx ATP Head2Head series deficit against Anderson to 2-4. Mayer's only previous win against a Top 10 player came against David Ferrer at the 2014 German Tennis Championships presented by Kampmann.

"Anderson is a player who has a great serve... Today I could not break him but I made some small differences in both tie-breaks," said Mayer.

"It's very nice for me to beat a [Top 10] player like him... it's been a long time since I won against a top player. Today I played really well."

Mayer will face #NextGenATP American Frances Tiafoe for a quarter-final spot. Tiafoe defeated countryman Jared Donaldson in straight sets on Monday.

Kontinen/Peers Comfortably Through To QF
Reigning Nitto ATP Finals champions Henri Kontinen and John Peers made a successful return to London at the Fever-Tree Championships, defeating Canadian duo Daniel Nestor and Denis Shapovalov 6-3, 7-5.

The second seeds won 85 per cent of serve points (41/48) to advance after 56 minutes. Kontinen and Peers will meet Mike Bryan and Jack Sock for a semi-final spot.

The American duo came from a set down before dominating a Match Tie-break to beat Santiago Gonzalez and Sam Querrey 6-7(5), 6-2, 10-2. Bryan and Sock won 50 per cent of return points in the 72-minute clash.
