Kei Nishikori (JPN) shows his strength this year. He defended his title in Memphis in February and beat Roger Federer (SUI) in Miami in March. And in April, he captured his first clay court title in Barcelona. We cannot take our eyes off from him when he returns to Ariake.
It is officially announced that Stan Wawrinka (SUI) will participate in Rakuten Japan Open 2014. Wawrinka captured his first Grand Slam title in Melbourne by beating No.2 Novak Djokovic(SRB) and No.1 Rafael Nadal (ESP) this year.
David Ferrer to reclaim his another title in Tokyo.
David Ferrer (ESP) finished the 2013 year with his best No.3, by reaching his first Grand Slam finals in Roland Garros. In 2014 he keeps going strong, beating Rafael Nadal (ESP) on the clay. He will gear towards another title in Tokyo since 2007.
Milos Raonic (CAN) is quite familiar to the Japanese audience by finishing second two years in a row (lost to Kei Nishikori in 2012 and to Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG) in 2013). He will appear in Ariake once again with his big serve.
Juan Martin Del Potro to come back again in Tokyo!
Although Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG), the defending champion, has been away from the tour since this February due to his left wrist injury, he is hoping to reclaim the title again here in Tokyo where he brilliantly came back and captured the title last year.
