Kenta Nishimoto who turned professional earlier in the year travelled to Denmark for the DANISA Denmark Open 2020. He is one of the only eight players and the only men’s singles players from Japan who travelled to Denmark.

Nishimoto seemed satisfied with the safety measures taken up by the host. Through The Star, he said, “I feel very safe here, with all the measures.”

He had earlier said his decision to turn professional was to hunt for a qualifying spot for Tokyo Games. With compatriots like Kento Momota and Kanta Tsuneyama also looking to play in Tokyo, playing in Denmark will award Nishimoto precious ranking points.

Nishimoto: “Of course there’s concern to come here but the best thing I could do is play and show it is possible to compete overseas and it was a big step to fly here.”
