Kei Nishikori of Japan to Wear UNIQLO tennis apparel.

Kei Nishikori of Japan Getty Images IMG Worldwide recently announced that Kei Nishikori of Japan (currently #82 in the world) has signed a 5 year apparel agreement with UNIQLO Co. He wore the line for the first time earlier this year at the Aircel Chennai Open in India and is currently wearing it at the Australian Open. The shorts mirror the shirt's design. It's a straightforward, clean look.

Nishikori trains at the Bradenton Florida IMG Bollettieri Tennis Academy and is coached by Dante Bottini and Brad Gilbert.

UNIQLO Japan plans a more detailed announcement at the end of the month. The tennis apparel is not yet available in the US but may be later in the year.
