  • Andujar earns semifinal spot with Nishikori upset

    5/11/13 2:53 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Andujar earns semifinal spot with Nishikori upset Pablo Andujar has another upset win to his name this week, this time with a victory over world No. 14 Kei Nishikori.

    Pablo Andujar defeated Kei Nishikori 6-3, 7-5 in Friday's quarterfinals to advance to the semis.

    Andujar needed a wildcard to get into the Madrid event; the Spaniard took full advantage of the opportunity and now finds himself in Saturday's semifinals against the King of Clay Rafael Nadal.

    Andujar has had a string of upset wins this week already, with a win over No. 10 seed Marin Cilic in the first round, John Isner in the second, Daniel Gimeno-Traver in the third and rounding out the week against Nishikori on Friday.

    Nishikori seemed to display a bit of a let-down after his massive win over world No. 2 Roger Federer. In the third round upset of Federer, Nishikori played confident, aggressive tennis, but on Friday, the Japanese man had difficulty finding his range at all.

    After an easy first set for Andujar, Nishikori seemed to show some life in the second. The Japanese man went down an early break at 2-2, but with Andujar serving for the match, Nishikori pressed his advantage to level the match at 5-5.

    The victory was short-lived, however. Nishikori served up a terrible game at 5-5 to give the break right back to the Spaniard, and with it the match, as Andujar easily served it out at 6-5.
