Kevin Anderson demolishes Kei Nishikori at ATP Finals
Kevin Anderson dropped only one game en route to a crushing victory over Kei Nishikori in their ATP Finals round-robin match on Tuesday.
Both players came into the match on the back wins in their opening rubbers with the South African beating Dominic Thiem and Nishikori seeing off Roger Federer.
However, the Japanese player was no match for Anderson in their second game with the two-time Grand Slam finalist securing a 6-0, 6-1 victory in one hour and five minutes.

The South African broke three times in the first set and twice in the second with Nishikori, who admitted before the start of the tournament that he is still struggling with a wrist problem, only getting on the scoreboard in game six before Anderson served it out.
