A sportswriter reports: "There's this woman who's always seen walking a few steps away from Kei Nishikori (23) when he's playing overseas. She goes with him and takes care of his personal life".
This "personal manager" is Honami Tsuboi (24), apparently a former member of Japan's national rhythmic gymnastics team "Fairy Japan". The two were together at the Beijing Olympics 5 years ago but hardly talked to each other back then. They started dating 3 years ago.
"Nishikori and Tsuboi had dinner together with a common friend, and immediately hit it off." - (sports writer)
Their relationship deepened further when Nishikori was diagnosed with kidney stones.
"Nishikori had to watch his diet so that the situation wouldn't worsen. Tsuboi-san studied nutritional science and wanted Nishikori, who spends most of each year abroad, to eat 'home-cooked food' all the time." - (tennis related staff)
Immediately after they began dating, Nishikori took her to his hometown in Matsue to meet his parents. She was apparently taught by his mom there the secret to the 'taste' of the Nishikori family.
"Nishikori, who rarely gets to visit his hometown, was able to take Tsuboi-san along with him in the latter part of September. He then announced to his relatives at the gathering that he would like to get married to her."
- 愛ちゃんじゃないの？So it isn't with Ai-chan?
- 愛ちゃんのほうがいいだろｗｗｗｗｗｗｗｗｗｗｗAi-chan's better wwwwwwwww
- 以前に話題になってた人かOh, the person who has been rumored with him before
- 美女…？A beauty...?
- 愛ちゃんは親兄弟がややこしいしめんどくさそうBut Ai-chan's parents and older brother are pretty troublesome
- 女性スポーツ選手との結婚ならおめでとうIf it's a marriage to a female athlete, then I congratulate him
- 新体操選手は体が柔らかいのが良いって聞くよねI do hear that these female gymnasts are pretty good since their bodies are pretty flexible
- 愛ちゃんはどうなったんや！？泣いてんのか！？What happened to Ai-chan!?
Is she crying!?
- アジアンって感じの顔だなShe does look 'Asian'
- こういう顔のコウモリいそうI think there are bats that look like this
- アスリート同士はうまくいく2 athletes together pretty much go well
- 同業種の彼女か芸能関係の知り合いは少ないのかなA girlfriend from the same line of work, huh.
Maybe he doesn't know too many people from the showbiz world.
- サーッ！！……じゃないのかよ(´・ω・｀)So it isn't with "Saa---!!", huh...(´・ω・｀)
- 福原愛ちゃんとは別れてたのかぁ。ちょいと残念。ﾆｼｺﾘとのキス写真可愛かったのにな(つд｀)He split up with Ai Fukuhara?
That's a bit disappointing. Her kissing picture with Nishikori was cute (つд｀)
- 圭くんなら海外の美女もものにできるだろうにKei-kun could have gotten himself a foreign beauty though
- 錦織は年収10億だからな。女も必死だろう。Nishikori earns 1 billion a year. Even the women would die for that.
- 新体操好きか。気が合いそうだSo he likes rhythmic gymnastics, huh. I think they're a good match.
- 新体操って言うからもっとカワイイのを想像したのに残念I was expecting someone a bit cuter when I hear rhythmic gymnastics, I'm a bit disappointed.
- もうかなり前にこんな写真選手間で撮られてたからなにしこりも他のテニス選手みたいに彼女を関係者席に座らせればいいのにThese 2 have already been photographed together by the other players a long time ago.
Nishikori should also let her sit in the VIP seats like how the other players do it.
- これまたチャラそうな女だなDear me, this girl looks pretty flashy
- これじゃない感が凄いわ。これなら妹ゴリラと結婚しろよ錦織、超人が産まれるわThe feeling of "No this isn't the one" is too strong here.
I'd rather have him marry the younger gorilla. I bet they're going to give birth to a superhuman.
- 微笑ましい話題じゃんアスリート同士の子供なら将来期待出来るThis is a story that made me smile.
And you can pin your hopes on the child of 2 athletes as well.
- この女は玉の輿だなThis woman will be marrying a wealthy man, huh
- まあフェデラー尊敬してるなら嫁はブスじゃないとなWell, if you respect Federer then your wife should be ugly too
- まぁ錦織ってしゃべってるとこ見たらただのキモメンだしシャイそうだもんないくら金持ってるからってあんまモテなそだからこのレベルの相手が丁度いいBut when Nishikori speaks normally, he's just a kimo-men (disgusting man), and he looks really shy.
I don't think he's that popular even if he has a lot of money.
That's why I think this level is just right for him.

- イケメンの遺伝子が淘汰される・・・・Ikemen genes will be reduced from the world...
- なかなかのブサイクだなw愛ちゃんは家族養わなきゃならないから結婚は難しそうだなWhoa, she's ugly w
But in Ai-chan's case, she has to take care of her family too, so marriage would probably be difficult.
- 35秒当りにツーショットA couple shot of the 2 at around the 0:35
- このスレでは評判悪いみたいだけどこういう雰囲気の女結構タイプだわShe doesn't seem too popular with the people on this thread, but women who emit this kind of aura are actually my type.
- 親父さんが凄い車何台も持ってる写真見たことある新体操もお金持ちのスポーツ？I think I saw pictures of her father owning a couple of pretty mean rides.
Is rhythmic gymnastics the type of sport that rich people do?
- おめでたいね。とりあえず運動能力の高い子供が生まれそうCongratulatory wishes are in order here.
I think they'll give birth to a pretty athletic child.
- ググってみたら…金持ちなんですなぁ～And according to Google...
It seems that she's also pretty rich.
- 親父３０００万のベンツ乗りか。田舎なら土地付き新築買える。So her dad rides a Benz worth \30 million, huh.
In the province, you can buy a newly built house & lot with that amount.
- この子、北京五輪のドキュメントで見たけど、性格良さそうな子だったなI saw this girl in a Beijing Olympics documentary, and she really did seem nice.
