Kei Nishikori began playing tennis at age 5. When he was 14, the Masaaki Morita Tennis Group funded his move from Japan to the IMG Bollettieri Academy in Florida. At the time, he could not speak a single word of English. In 2006 he took the Roland Garros Junior Doubles title and 2 years later he was named the ATP Newcomer of the Year. Nishikori is the only Japanese male ever to be ranked in the ATP top 10. His most notable run came in 2014 where he was the US Open Men's Singles Finalist beating Novak Djokovic in the process. He owns 12 ATP Tour titles, capturing his first at 2008 Delray Beach as 18-year-old qualifier. In 2016 he captured the Bronze medal at the Rio Olympics defeating grand slam champion Rafael Nadal. He continues to break barriers by becoming the first Asian man to reach the Quarterfinals at all 4 Grand Slam events and qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals. His favorite shot is his forehand and favorite surfaces are hard and clay.
