Kei Nishikori continues fine form to advance into Paris Open quarters
Kei Nishikori continued his impressive post-US Open form by defeating Kevin Anderson to move into the quarter-finals of the Paris Masters.
The Japanese player, who lost to Anderson last week in the final of the Vienna Open, picked up his 20th win since Flushing Meadows to keep his ATP Finals hopes alive.
The 6-4 6-4 win has earned him a shot against Roger Federer, who beat Fabio Fognini, in the last eight.

Dominic Thiem also advanced after battling past in-form Borna Coric 6-7 6-2 7-5.
“It was a great fight from both both of us from the beginning to the end. Borna is in great shape,” said Thiem.
“He has his career-high right now, so I think I was beating one of the best players right now in the world. That makes me happy.”
