Andujar led 4:2* in the 2nd set, the last few games were played under the floodlights. “I’m really happy I’m able to defend the title,” said Nishikori . “I think the second set was extremely tough and I don’t really know how I won it to be honest. Pablo was very aggressive, he kept moving the ball and made me run up and down all the time. I also tried to be aggressive and I think that’s why I won the important points, but I’d say he played better than me.”
Nishikori’s route to his 9th title:
2 Teymuraz Gabashvili 6-3, 6-4
