MELBOURNE, Australia - Its only been a couple of months since Kei Nishikori moved into the No. 5 ranking, and hes not yet comfortable with the number.Once success arrived it came quickly for the 25-year-old Japanese player who stands out as one of the games rising stars and one of its most modest.Nishikori spent the latter part of 2014 making history. He became the first Asian man to reach a Grand Slam final at the U.S. Open and finished the year ranked No. 5, the highest ranking ever achieved by a man from Asia.At this years Australian Open he has powered through the first four rounds to secure a spot in the quarterfinals and has tried to explain on a few occasions what it is about the number five that makes him uneasy.Im really new to be No. 5, so Im still not comfortable, Nishikori told the cheering crowd at Rod Laver Arena on Monday, where Japanese flags were waving during the windy afternoon match as he beat the supremely athletic No. 9-ranked David Ferrer 6-3, 6-3. 6-3.I think I feel more pressure than before, he said earlier in the week, describing the different feeling of being on the pedestal with the worlds best players. I think I need more time to get used to it.Asked on Monday what number he might feel more comfortable with, Nishikori smiled. Maybe like, 15 or 20.There is a disconnect between the confident, aggressive Nishikori fans witness on the court and the self-deprecating person he becomes off the court.When he plays, Nishikori is aggressive, quick and energetic, with leaping forehands and an ability to take the ball early, which adds to his power and gives his opponent less time to react. He is also extremely focused, confident and calm.Thats what Im really trying to do, (be) patient always but at the same time aggressive, said Nishikori, who broke into the top five after adding Michael Chang, the 1989 French Open champion, to his coaching team last year.Nishikori is a star in Japan but has been based since age 14 in Florida, where he moved to train at the Nick Bollettieris famed tennis academy.Living in the U.S. makes it easier for Nishikori to escape the limelight, but he says Japan still feels like home.In Florida nobody talks to me, Nishikori said. In Japan ... a lot of people recognize me. Its not easy to walk on the street.I feel more comfortable living in Japan. They have much better food, he smiled. But in Florida, they have great facilities... good players I can train with. They have everything.Maybe after he retires, Nishikori said, he will move back to Japan permanently. Not that retirement is on his mind just yet.On Wednesday, he faces defending champion Stan Wawrinka in the quarterfinals.It will be a rematch of their U.S. Open quarterfinal which Nishikori won in a gripping five sets before going on to beat No. 1-ranked Novak Djokovic in the semifinals. He has only reached the quarterfinal in Melbourne once before — in 2012 — and followed that with consecutive exits in the fourth round.Wawrinka said he was bracing for another long, tough match against Nishikori.Hes a great shot maker. He can make winners. Hes always taking the ball really early. Its always tough to play against him, said the No. 4-ranked Wawrinka. Well see how Im going to deal with that. Black Mid Top Air Force Ones . - Tom Brady and the Patriots routed the Bengals and quieted the doubters. Air Max 360 2018 . On Tuesday, the star questioned whether that was still the case. Speaking to reporters at a charity event, Johnson said: "I just kind of wonder sometimes: Is this still the place for me?" Johnsons comments came after he was asked why he recently skipped a voluntary minicamp. http://www.fundfdr.org/cheap-nike-air-f ... -07.html.C. Lions 35-14, was named the CFLs offensive player of the week Tuesday. Sheets recorded his ninth 100-yard rushing performance of the season to tie the Riders club record. Nike Air Force 1 Womens On Sale . Rasmussen didnt have a decision during his four appearances in May, when he gave up two hits and no runs in two innings. Toronto used five relievers while pulling off the second-biggest comeback in franchise history on Friday night, rallying from an 8-0 deficit to a 14-9 win. Black Low Top Air Force Ones . Casey Janssen was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday due to a strain in his left abdominal area and lower back.DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Jonathan Diaz is easy to spot in the Blue Jays clubhouse. Just look for a big smile atop a compact five-foot-nine, 155-pound body. The 28-year-old Florida native is also hard to miss on the field -- an elegant, mobile shortstop with a slick glove. A career .230 hitter in the minors, Diaz is not likely to stick with a major league club that already has a superstar at shortstop in Jose Reyes, the versatile Ryan Goins at second base and Maicer Izturis as a utility infielder. But his skills are appreciated and have been on display again in the Blue Jays organization after a one-year stint with the Boston Red Sox and former Jays manager John Farrell. "Id heard about them," Toronto manager John Gibbons said of Diazs fielding talents. "Everybodys always said youre not going to find a better shortstop or defender, period. You can put him anywhere out there and hes definitely shown that this spring." Diaz has appeared in the infield and outfield this spring, often as a late inning replacement. He has turned heads with a nifty double play and scored the 10th-inning game-winner on some aggressive base-running in a 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles last Sunday. As of Wednesday, he was hitting .077 with one hit in 13 at-bats this spring. He knows defence is his ticket in baseball. "Ive always love to be out there making plays and doing acrobatic things," he said. "Luckily thats kept me in the game for as long as it has." He was given No. 1 to wear by the Jays, the same number as former great Tony Fernandez. "Its a honour to be wearing that number," he said. "He was an unbelievable shortstop." A 12th-round pick -- 360th overall -- by the Jays in the 2006 draft out of North Carolina State, Diaz is happy to be back in the Toronto fold after his year away. "It feels like I never left," he said. "It feels like home. I was here for seven years and then I took a little hiatus with the Red Sox for a year." Boston had its moments, however. He was called up to the majors for the first time, "which was amazing," he said. He saw action in five games, with four at-bats. He had no hits but scored two runs. "I was there for a week .dddddddddddd. Fortunately Im going to get a World Series ring and all that so Im really excited about that. It was a good time," he said. Coincidentally, Diazs debut in the majors came against Toronto and he threw out Reyes from third in Torontos first at-bat. He also scored the winning run against the Jays. These days his locker is just down the row from Reyes in a largely Spanish-speaking neighbourhood of the clubhouse. With a Dominican father and Puerto Rican mother, he grew up with Spanish as his first language. "This is my corner. These are my people," he said with a grin. Diaz says he tries not to think of where he might end up. The goal is the big leagues and the plan is to play as well as possible. After that, que sera sera. "Make sure youre healthy and just try to be ready when the time comes," Diaz said by way of summary. "Im just out there trying to show I can help the team in any way possible." Away from the field, Diaz is married with three daughters -- 10, eight and 16 months. The family makes its home in Dunedin with his wife and daughters joining Diaz "wherever Im at," when school breaks for the summer. "By now, theyre used to it ... Its a crazy fun life," he said. But it has not always been fun for Diaz. In 2011, he was one of the final cuts out of the Jays major league camp. He went to double-A ball and then triple-A in Las Vegas. "I was doing really well," he said. "I went to have dinner, took a cab and woke up in a hospital." There was an accident and Diaz suffered a concussion, lost some hearing and his two front teeth, among other injuries. His wife, then his fiancee, was on the side of the cab that got hit and took the brunt of the impact. She suffered broken ribs, a torn spleen, separated shoulder and cuts. "It was pretty ugly," he said. "But luckily were healthy now." The injuries also took a toll on his playing career. "That took me out of it for a couple of months," he said. "That window, I felt like, was a good chance of being called up at the time." Two false front teeth have not impacted Diazs smile. He seems to savour every baseball moment. ' ' '
