Kimiko Date-Krumm on Friday lauded Kei Nishikori’s recent U.S. Open quarterfinal victory over Olympic champion Andy Murray, praising the 26-year-old for showing maturity in the enthralling five-set encounter.

Date-Krumm, 45, reached the women’s singles semifinals in three of the four Grand Slams, with the U.S. Open proving her biggest hurdle as she only managed two quarterfinal runs, in 1993 and 1994.
