Nishikori in race to return for Australian Open

Nishikori in race to return for Australian Open

Kei Nishikori is entered to play in the Australian Open, but the jury is still out on whether the Japanese can recover from a season-ending wrist injury in time for the year's first grand slam, his manager said on Thursday.

The 27-year-old, who was ranked fourth in the world in March, pulled out of the Cincinnati Masters in August after tearing a tendon in his right wrist and has not played since.

Nishikori has dropped to 14th in the rankings after missing the U.S. Open, the final grand slam of the year, but is also entered to play in the Brisbane International, a warm-up for the year's first major in Melbourne.

Nishikori nearing Slam success, says coach Chang

Nishikori nearing Slam success, says coach Chang

Kei Nishikori absolutely has the talent to make the breakthrough and win one of tennis's Grand Slams, his coach Michael Chang told AFP.

Chang said the injury-plagued Japanese world number nine needed to hit the majors in good health, make a few adjustments to his game and he could be a match for anyone on the tour.

Though Nishikori made the 2014 US Open final, he has never gone beyond the quarters at the Australian or French Opens, or the last 16 on the grass at Wimbledon.
