Kei Nishikori, vying to improve on his U.S. Open runner-up finish in 2014, cruised into the quarter-finals at Flushing Meadows Monday with a 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 victory over German Philipp Kohlschreiber.Nishikori reached a career-high fourth in the world in 2015, but tumbled down the rankings as he was sidelined for six months by a wrist injury that kept him out of last year's U.S. Open and eventually required surgery.But he's made brisk progress to the quarter-finals, dropping just one set and benefitting from Gael Monfils' injury retirement in the second round.After rolling through the first two sets against Kohlschreiber he hit a speed bump as he served for the match at 5-4 in the third.
