  • ATP Vienna Kei Nishikori destroys Dominic Thiem. Monfils and Coric retire

Japan's Kei Nishikori advanced to the final of the Erste Bank Open with a straight-sets semifinal victory over Mikhail Kukushkin on Saturday.

Anderson, with only four ATP World Tour 250 championships to his name, would qualify for the ATP Finals by capturing the Vienna title.

Thanks to his powerful serve, Anderson, who fired 13 aces, managed to save two break points he faced, while he only managed to break his opponent's serve once out of seven opportunities he created.

"I want to congratulate Kei on a great week", Anderson said on court after receiving the trophy.

"I felt I came pretty close the two previous seasons, but I missed out on it".

The Burj Khalifa is twice the height of New York's Empire State Building and three times as tall as the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Those tickets were sold in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Wisconsin.

Nishikori has a 4-2 record against Anderson from six previous meetings, including a 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 (4) win in NY in February. You have to win a lot of big matches against the best opponents in the world to book your spot there, so it's fantastic to be amongst the best eight players in the world. "Hopefully I can make London, but there is still one more tournament next week in Paris, so I just play 100 percent here in Vienna and hope I can carry on the momentum to Paris".

Anderson was runner-up to Djokovic at Wimbledon in July but the win in Vienna represented the biggest title of his career.

NY and the 32-year-old's previous three career wins came in Johannesburg, Delray Beach and Winston-Salem were all at World Tour 250-level. I was up against an unbelievable opponent in Kei and I really had to play some wonderful tennis.

The Japanese clinched the third final of the season after he became the lowest-ranked Monte-Carlo finalist since No. 53 Arazi in 2001 (l.to No. 1 Nadal) and suffered his first loss in his third title-match in Tokyo (l.to Medvedev).
