Kei Nishikori storms into Barcelona Open semifinal

Kei Nishikori storms into Barcelona Open semifinal
Reigning champion Kei Nishikori moved into the semifinals of the Barcelona Open with 6-2, 3-6, 6-1 win over Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut on Friday.  The Japanese is the heavy favourite to retain his title after Rafael Nadal’s shock defeat to Fabio Fognini on Thursday and impressively romped through the deciding set after being forced all the way for the first time this week. Nishikori eased through the first set after breaking in the first game, but Bautista Agut responded by breaking for 4-2 in the second and held off three break points to serve out for the set.
