  1. - - NISHIKORI 6-3 2-6 7-6(4) 1-6 4-6 - GAME SET AND MATCH SEPPI! The Italian chucks in an ace as he holds to love to win a 3-hour, 5-setter and move into the last 16, where he faces one of Del Potro or Zemlja.

  2. - - NISHIKORI 6-3 2-6 7-6(4) 1-6 4-5 - Vital break for Seppi after a close-run fifth, the Italian will serve for the match!

  3. - - NISHIKORI 6-3 2-6 7-6(4) 1-6 1-0 - The opening game in the fifth-set decider has gone on for an age as they tussle around duece. It's Nishikori serving and eventually he holds after a gruelling rally, Seppi netting a forehand cross.

  4. - - NISHIKORI 6-3 2-6 7-6(4) 1-6 - SET! This is an odd match. Seppi just blew Nishikori away in that set, only letting him hold the once as he forces a decider that is impossible to call.

  5. - - NISHIKORI 6-3 2-6 7-6(4) - SET! This one has gone to a breaker in the third and Nishikori takes it to four. Too close to call this one so far - can see it going to five.

  6. - - NISHIKORI 6-3 2-6 5-4 - BREAK! Deary me - Nishikori was serving for the third set, he had a couple of set points but blew them as the blond-haired, German-speaking Italian Seppi thundered away a forehand to break back.

  7. - - NISHIKORI 6-3 2-6 3-0 - Seppi ended up breaking again to take the second easily and level overall. But the Japanese starts the third with a hold-break-hold and is suddenly in command.

  8. - - NISHIKORI 6-3 0-1 - BREAK! Great start for Seppi in the second as he breaks to 15. Nishikori's first serve letting him down.

  9. - - NISHIKORI 6-3 - BREAK AND SET! The Japanese has the first set with a second break as Seppi was serving to stay in it. The games have been tighter than the double break suggests, but it's Nishikori who takes charge early on.

  10. - - NISHIKORI 4-2 - BREAK! The men's 12th seed is Japan's Kei Nishikori, who could find himself in the later rounds of this tournament after the fall of the mighty. He's a solid grass player and can raise his game. He's a break up against Italy's 23rd seed Andreas Seppi and defends it off deuce.
