His opponent Marin Cilic. 26 -year-old. No.14 seed, 1,98 cm tall. His huge serve took great advantage against Roger Federer (33) who is the best player in history; 17 Grand slam winner. The 2nd semifinal score 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.. For Federer it's clear 'not his day'. Cilic became the second Croatian Slam finalist. His coach was first one : Goran Ivanišević (43), 1 time Wimbledon winner.

Nishikori recruited this year Chang as his coach whose family immigrated from Taiwan to US. On coming sunday it takes the men's final place. Kei Nishikori (24) vs Marin Clic (26). It means also Chang vs Ivanišević. Only one time Slams winners have made their employers as surprising stunners. Nishikori-Chang took out Djokovic-Becker and Cilic-Ivanišević did same against Federer-Stefan Edberg (48). Edberg has been 7 times GS winner, including all four slams titles.

[Question] Can Nishikori become a Grand Slam winner?
The No.10 seed vs No.14. 1.78cm vs 1.98cm .
[Question] How about consistency and precision?
Herewith Kei would be better than Marin. His two-handed backhand would likely be one of best superior weapon in the world. It's fast and precise that is very difficult to react even for the big Four ; Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray.

He would be the first Japanese Grand Slam champion if and when he is able to overcome big serve of Cilic. I'm looking forword to be a witness it on TV-live,
