  • Nishikori, Wawrinka move into Buenos Aires second round

    Kei Nishikori took out Spanish veteran Juan Carlos Ferrero to advance at the Copa Claro, while Stanislas Wawrinka finished up a night encounter against Horacio Zeballos.

    Juan Carlos Ferrero’s dismal season continued on Monday with the Spaniard losing a three-setter to Japan’s Kei Nishikori. The match was a study in breaks of serve, with a whopping 11 combined for the match.

    The first set featured the sloppiest serving of the three; nearly half the service breaks came in the match opener, with Nishikori just sneaking out the set-winning break in Ferrero’s last service game.

    Ferrero was much better in the second set. The veteran didn’t face a single break point, but he earned nine chances on his opponent. Nishikori held him to two breaks, but that was more than enough for Ferrero to level the match.

    The Spaniard was back to serving poorly in the third. Nishikori secured another three breaks of serve to close out the match.

    Stanislas Wawrinka (6) def. Horacio Zeballos 6-3, 6-4

    This win wasn’t quite as clear-cut as the scoreline suggests. Argentine wildcard Horacio Zeballos had a number of opportunities to draw level in the second set, including the game at 5-4 with Switzerland’s Stanislas Wawrinka attempting to serve it out. Zeballos had a pair of break-point chances, but some clutch serving by Wawrinka saw him out of trouble.

    Wawrinka awaits the winner of Benoit Paire and qualifier Javier Marti in the second round.
