Kei Nishikori beats Roger Federer in Nitto ATP Finals opener

Japan’s Kei Nishikori, who came into the year-ending event as a replacement for the injured Juan Martin del Potro, did not disappoint as he brilliantly rose to the occasion, defeating six-time champion, Roger Federer 7-6, 6-3 in the pair’s first singles match in Group Llyeton Hewitt at The O2 in London on Sunday.

Federer, who was hoping to get his bid for a 100th career singles title off to a good start, got betrayed by his nerves, showing frustration and also received a warning from the umpire for swiping a ball into the stands in the first set. After Nishikori clinched the tiebreaker in a tight first set, the Japanese would go on to find the crucial break in the second set and run away from the remainder of the match.

It is the first time since 2014 that Nishikori has beaten Federer.

“I’m glad to win, it is never easy to play with my idol, it is always a big challenge against him, so it was great to win,” said Nishikori, a two-time finalist at this event.

Nishikori will face Kevin Anderson next, while Federer, who has now lost his opening match at the event for the fourth time, takes on Dominic Thiem, who lost to Kevin Anderson earlier.

  14. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  17. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  18. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  19. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  20. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  22. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  23. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  24. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  30. Hi, I am the marketing apprentice at Peaches and Screams. We are presently striving to delve into the vape wholesale market. Does anybody at all here possess any kind of experience with the vape market or B2B list building? We are significantly inclined to buy the Global Vape Shop Database, Vape Company E-Mail List and Yoggy’s Money Vault Search Engine Scraper so as to generate our personal B2B leads. Does anyone here have any sort of expertise with any one of the above advertising and marketing tools? Would love to hear your thoughts and reviews prior to committing myself to the purchase. Additionally, I would considerably appreciate any strategies for really helping us to expand our vape wholesale company. Cheers
