Kei Nishikori to face Daniil Medvedev in Brisbane International final

Tennis Clinical Kei Nishikori into Brisbane International final

Fourth-seeded Daniil Medvedev has beaten Milos Raonic 6-7 (2), 6-3, 6-4 to reach the semifinals at the Brisbane International.

Kei Nishikori says he would have arrived in Melbourne happy even if he had lost a tenth-straight ATP final on Sunday.

A year ago Kei Nishikori was just coming off a wrist injury, and readying for the challenger tour after Australia.

"Everything was working well today", Nishikori said.

"Rennae said 'I am absolutely sure you can win this match, ' which gave me some confidence and belief that I can do it".

"I think we need him on tour".

The third set was all Pliskova as she broke Tsurenko twice to wrap up the final in two hours, 12 minutes.

The Russian, who stands at 1.98 meters, was able to withstand the huge serving of Tsonga and out-hit him from the baseline.

"I didn't do anything wrong".

However, there is little information available about the lenses, aperture sizes, and other features of the three cameras. Samsung is expected to launch the two devices soon, but it hasn't announced an exact release date yet.

The Spain-based teenager lamented a handful of missed opportunities that came amid a barrage of Tsonga winners.

Japan's Naomi Osaka lamented her poor attitude following a straight sets thrashing by Lesia Tsurenko in the Brisbane International semifinals but the US Open victor said defeat came with a valuable lesson.

Earlier on Saturday, world No. 5 Naomi Osaka suffered a 6-2, 6-4 loss to No. 27-ranked Lesia Tsurenko, which cost the young star a place in the final and a chance to move up to the No. 3 world ranking - which would be a record high for a player from Japan.

Donna Vekic defeated 2018 finalist Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-2, 6-0 to reach the women's semifinals and will next play fifth-seeded Karolina Pliskova, who beat Ajla Tomljanovic 6-1, 1-6, 6-1.

"I feel nearly home there, so I hope I can do well, better than a quarter-final". "I've never had a match like this, but I'm happy I'm back in the semis", Pliskova, who fired 14 aces and 27 winners, said.

"I'm going to go there and practice tomorrow and see how it goes and decide from there", he told AAP. So I think that was my main problem.

She helped me just to get motivated a little bit more, to get going a little bit more. "So hopefully this isn't a recurring thing".

"There is nothing better than this", the Japanese said afterwards.
