Kei Nishikori admits to a poor week despite toppling Roger Federer

Roger Federer bounces back and remains alive at the 2018 ATP Finals in London... for now.

Two days after a surprising 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 loss Sunday to Japan's Kei Nishikori in his first match in Group Lleyton Hewitt, the third-ranked Federer on Tuesday came out on court at the O2 Arena eager to get back on track and quickly asserted his superiority, reports Efe. "That's okay. If I don't pass, I don't pass, and I deserve not to pass. Alexander Zverev fumes at major issue after Novak Djokovic loss Novak Djokovic reveals true thoughts of new ATP Cup - full format "Important for me is to play a good last match here in the round-robin, try to beat Kevin".

There is still work to do for the second seed, however, especially as giant South African Kevin Anderson, who he plays at the conclusion of the group on Thursday, is in red-hot form.

"I hope it is not a match like Kevin Anderson played this afternoon!" Today he had obviously a good game for him. I don't know. But, yeah, I just didn't play well this week. I love playing in London and I had to remind myself what a privilege it is. "I wasn't able to extend out rallies", Nishikori said.

Model And Actress Kim Porter Dead At 47
A source told the New York Post in 2001 that Combs had still been living with Porter in 1999 when he started seeing Lopez. Another source said that Kim had contacted her doctor on Wednesday to complain that she wasn't feeling any better.

He certainly looked back in the groove, making only 11 unforced errors, compared to the 34 against Nishikori, and surrendering just six points on serve.

The 28-year-old leads their head-to-head 3-1 and thumped him 6-3 6-1 in Vienna just a couple of weeks ago.

Federer grabbed a break in the third game against a nervous-looking Thiem and a second for 5-2 on his way to taking the first set. He also rarely made any impression with his signature weapon - the one-handed backhand.

Federer turned the screw to break again immediately in the second set.

Anderson is in pole position, but qualification for the semi-finals is still possible for all four players.

"That's amongst the matches best I've played", said Anderson.

"I don't really feel that I am in the mood during a World Tour Finals to discuss that topic, to be honest". "I could win and still not make it, so from that standpoint it's not in my power", Federer said.
