Club to Honor Nishikori

The Club will honor Japanese tennis star Kei Nishikori with its Sportsman of the Year award at a ceremony on December 1.

Established in 1989, the award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to sport in Japan.

Nishikori is Japan’s most successful tennis player and was ranked fifth in the world at the end of the 2014 season, the year he qualified for his first grand slam final at the US Open. The 25-year-old has won 10 ATP singles titles.

"Kei's tremendous 2014 season was topped off with a trip to the US Open final and his first appearance at the ATP World Tour Finals in London, where the top eight players compete. He has qualified for the World Tour Finals this year as well. Kei's success has also launched a resurgence in tennis in Japan. His impact, especially in Japan, is immeasurable," says JoAnn Yoneyama of the Club's Culture, Community and Entertainment Committee, which selected Nishikori for the award.

Past award recipients include sumo wrestler Konishiki (1991), baseball’s Ichiro Suzuki (1995), swimmer Kosuke Kitajima (2005), golfer Ryo Ishikawa (2011) and Olympic hammer thrower Koji Murofushi (2014).

The Club's CHOP Steakhouse was named Certified Angus Beef's International Marketer of the Year for an independent restaurant at a ceremony in Texas.

 

The restaurant's chef de cuisine, Scott Kihara, was on hand at the beef brand's annual conference in San Antonio to pick up the award.

 

"This award reflects all the hard work by the staff at CHOP and the Club to offer our Members a superb product from an American brand that shares similar ideals," said Kihara.

 

"CHOP Steakhouse is our best-positioned licensed restaurant in Asia. It has a prestigious reputation throughout the Japanese beef industry, as well as with the US Meat Export Federation and US Embassy," said Brandy Erwin, assistant director of international marketing with Certified Angus Beef.

 

The third-floor hub of steaks and American classics serves a range of Certified Angus Beef cuts, including porterhouse, bone-in cowboy rib eye and bone-in strip loin.
