Stan Wawrinka was comfortably beaten by Kei Nishikori in the ATP World Tour Finals on Monday within 67 minutes.

The Swiss, who is the defending US Open champion lost 6-2 6-3 in their tour finals opener, making 31 unforced errors and three double faults.

The Swiss was self-deprecating with his trademark sense of humour in his post-match press conference. Asked if the quicker courts were better than last year at the O2 Arena, he quipped with a smile: “So far not, because I just lost the match, but I will see at the end of the tournament.”

“It was not a great match compared to what I can do, that’s for sure,” added Wawrinka. “It wasn’t a great day for myself. In general, I think he play well, put a lot of pressure from the beginning.

“I don’t think I find anything on the court today. I was a little bit slow on everything. I was hesitating a lot with my game, my movement.”
