I want to teach about famouse Japanese tennis player of three people.
At first, I want to write about SHUZOU MATSUOKA, he was born November 6th in 1967, his told is 188centimeter.
He is man who personality is very passionate.
He was a player that a very bold play style, his speed of service is more than 200km while being Japanese, it is surprise.
SHUZO’s vest world singles ranking is 46, doubles ranking’s vest is 95, it was very good record in japan at that time, but he can’t ranking up so much, because he was injured many times.
His father also play the tennis that was played an active part in japan.

NISHIKORI was started playing tennis when he was 5 old, he was member of the “SHUZOU challenge”
Defeated the first place men's singles rankings for the first time in Japanese, he has updated the Japanese record by this. 10 in the world singles rankings now, is the world's Ranked # 9 is the highest record in japan.
I believe about NISHIKORI’s ranking is more up and more.
There is a story in a very unyielding personality of NISHIKORI, and lost the first seed of sixth grade elementary school in the tournament at the time of the elementary school, and went home crying to him.
When NISHIKORI 17 old, he became professional tennis player.
