PinExt Nishikori wins Memphis title with final victory over Lopez

Japan’s Kei Nishikori won his 3rd ATP Tour title after beating Spaniard Feliciano Lopez in the 2013 Memphis final. Nishikori needed one hour an 7 minutes to cruise to a more than comfortable 6-2 6-3 victory.

Nishikori started the match full of confidence, breaking Lopez twice to take a 4-1 lead. Lopez never really managed to recover. After dropping the first set, the Japanese player took his serve for the third time to go 2-0 up. The Spaniard earned himself a few good chances to break back, but Nishikori was rock solid when it came to the big points. Breaking Lopez once more when 5-3 up, Nishikori raised his arms in celebration.

In the doubles competition, the Bryan Brothers won their 85th career doubles title with a 6-1 6-2 win over James Blake and Jack Sock.
