SUNDAY REVIEW NISHIKORI CRUISES TO TITLE; BRYANS WIN THIRD SEASON CROWN

Fifth seed Kei Nishikori won his third ATP World Tour title and second at the ATP World Tour 500 level (Tokyo 2012).
Nishikori did not drop a set during the tournament en route to becoming the first player from Japan to win the trophy in Memphis.
Lopez was appearing in his first ATP World Tour final since May 2011, when he finished runner-up to Novak Djokovic in Belgrade.
Bob and Mike Bryan won their 85th team title and third this season, adding to their triumphs in Sydney and the Australian Open.
The doubles title match was the first all-American final in Memphis since 2001, when the Bryans defeated Alex OBrien and Jonathan Stark to win their first career title.

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID  

Kei Nishikori: Im very happy with the way I played today. To win this title is an amazing feeling. I tried to concentrate on all the important points. I served really well this week. I was practising a lot and its getting better. Hopefully I can win a couple more titles. Its been a good start to the year.

Feliciano Lopez: I didnt play a bad match. He was very aggressive from the beginning. I think he probably played his best. I have no regrets. I tried everything I could and he was just the better player today. I hope to keep playing like I did this week.

Bob Bryan: We played great tennis all week and were even better in the final, which is nice. We got out of a couple sticky moments early in the match and the momentum shifted our way. We haven't put up scores like this in a while. It was nice to get it done and not sweat through a match tie-break. It was fun playing against two of our friends, too.

Mike Bryan: It's incredible there hasn't been an all-American final here since 2001, but it was great to be back where we won our first title. Bob and I couldn't have played any better. We love coming back here. To have three titles in four tournaments so far this season is amazing.
