    SAN DIEGO 2021, R1: Andy d LL Kudla - Nishikori withdrew

    Andy will take on Kei Nishikori in R1 at San Diego.
    It's the 12th time they've met with Andy leading the H2H by 9-2.


    They've both been around on the ATP Tour for a number of years, with varying injuries that have hampered both at different times in their careers.

    Kei is currently ranked #54 (CH-4, 2015) whereas Andy is #113(CH-1, 2017) and 3 years older. Andy won their last 2 encounters (RG 2017 and ATP Finals 2016) although Nishikori clocked huge win at the US Open 2016 in 5 sets over the newly crowned (for the 2nd time) Wimbledon Champion.

    So, anything could happen ..... fair to say Andy knows how to play Kei.

    Nishikori has been replaced by lucky loser Kudla.
