    HONG KONG: Australia’s Lleyton Hewitt said on Tuesday that Kei Nishikori was developing into a serious contender at Grand Slams as he bids to emulate China’s Li Na by becoming an Asian major-winner. Hewitt, who will share the stage with China’s Li at next month’s BNP Paribas Showdown in Hong Kong, said Japan’s world number 16 stood the strongest chance of becoming the first Asian-born male singles Slam champion. Sixteenth-ranked Nishikori, now advised by former French Open-winner Michael Chang, also pushed top seed Rafael Nadal in January’s Australian Open round of 16 in one of his best Grand Slam performances.
