Nishikori passes Greek test to reach Tokyo semis

Nishikori passes Greek test to reach Tokyo semis

Once Nishikori bagged an early break in the second set, Gasquet's resistance faded and he put him out of his misery with a sizzling backhand down the line.

"I know what I have to do to beat him, but I also know it will be tough". Still pushing his case for first time place at the ATP World Tour Finals in London, Anderson sits at No.8 on the race.

Nishikori, who won the Japan Open in 2012 and 2014, drew first blood against Gasquet as he tore through the first-set tiebreak, unleashing a whipped forehand into the corner to snaffle it 7-2. I played five great tie-breaks, that's why I've won the matches. "I played two incredible tiebreaks, that's why I think I won the match".

"I'm playing well", Gasquet added.

The Japanese world No. 12, who has yet to lose a set at the tournament, served 10 aces to his 25th-ranked opponent's seven and did not concede a single double fault.

Gasquet upset second seed Kevin Anderson 7-6 (6), 7-6 (4) in a pulsating affair on the hard courts of the Ariake Tennis Forest Park. Canadian Denis Shapovalov will play Daniil Medvedev of Russian Federation in the other semifinal.

"I think definitely as the weeks go by, I have this feeling of wanting to prove myself".

Milos Raonic was also beaten by Medvedev, the Thornhill, Ont., veteran falling in the quarter-finals.

"I was able to raise my level in (the) tiebreak and play a little more aggressive, focus (on) every point, and play my best tiebreak for the last couple of months".

"Dennis is an awesome player", Medvedev said on court, noting he had been prepared for a tough match today after their previous meetings in which Shapovalov had a 2-0 record.

"I hope I can make it three out of three this year".

Shapovalov has yet to reach an ATP final in his young career, losing in three semi-finals this year.
