Nishikori defeats Sousa to reach last 16 in Australian Open

21 Janvier, 2019, 13:10 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

No. 15 Daniil Medvedev defeated No. 21 David Goffin 6-2, 7-6 (3), 6-3.

Kei Nishikori has moved swiftly into the Australian Open fourth round for a seventh straight time with a comfortable win over Portugal's Joao Sousa.

Nishikori, taken to five sets in his previous two rounds, made it much easier for himself this time with a 7-6 6-1 6-2 win over the Portuguese player.

"Forehand has been working very well", Nishikori said.

The Japanese fourth seed was staring down the barrel at 4-2 in the second set at Margaret Court Arena, driven to distraction by double-sided Hsieh's angled shots and stout defence.

"The second and third sets I was playing very aggressively and everything was working well", Nishikori said.

The former U.S. Open finalist will now play against Fabio Fognini or Pablo Carreno Busta in the last 16.

Kei Nishikori survived a huge scare against Croatian Ivo Karlovic before reaching the third round of the Australian Open with a 6-3, 7-6 (8-6), 5-7, 5-7, 7-6 (10-7) win on Thursday.

Sousa saved a virtual set point to hold for 5-6 before Nishikori sent the opener into a tiebreak.

Runner-up to Nishikori at the season-opening Brisbane International, Medvedev's reward for continuing his excellent summer is a showdown with world No.1 Novak Djokovic.

Canada's Milos Raonic produced a serving masterclass, firing 23 aces and winning 85 percent of points on his first serve, to swat aside Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert 6-4 6-4 7-6 (6).

Lucas Pouille ended the run of 19-year-old Australian wild-card entry Alex Popyrin by holding on to edge him 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-7 (10), 4-6, 6-3 in the third round.

Popyrin was trying to become just the eighth wild card to get to the fourth round in men's singles at the Australian Open during the 50-year professional era.
