Masters Miami 2014: Djokovic vs. Nishikori Prediction

Semifinals


Novak Djokovic (2) vs. Kei Nishikori (20)

Nole has a chance to recapture his late 2013 form and win back-to-back Masters Series events.  Kei Nishikori can build on his solid play in Australia and Miami by knocking off the world #1 and playing for the biggest prize of his career.  A lot is on the line.  In a case like this, I think picking with the on paper favorite is smart.  Nishikori might have a letdown.  He also twice trailed by one set and one break in the quarterfinal round.  He should be commended for rallying, but Nole is the favorite and has not been close to elimination in Miami.  My prediction: Nole d. Kei 7-5, 6-3
