Wawrinka overpowers Nishikori with flurry of one-handers

The rematch of an epic 2014 U.S. Open semifinal between Stan Wawrinka and Kei Nishikori was no such thriller. Wawrinka’s backhand made sure of that.

It was a surprisingly routine but also a powerful performance by Wawrinka, who rolled over Nishikori 6-2, 6-4, 7-6(6) in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open on Wednesday. The defending champion fired 46 winners in just three sets, doubling Nishikori’s count (23) and earning almost half of his total points (100) with winners.

As usual, the vaunted one-hander did most of the damage.

There is a little more branding on the PRC200. Firstly, Burberry handbags the 6 oclock sub-dial sports a basketball image in grey. Additionally, the pushers are edged with red (top) and blue (bottom), Breitling Replica Watches UK which is, to me, the coolest thing.
