U.S. Open: Nishiroki and Osaka made it

Kei Nishikori defeated Philipp Kohlschreiber who hails from Germany in multiple sets to reach the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open.   It is a good year for Japan as Naomi Osaka also reached the last eight of the women's draw after beating Aryna Sabalenka from Belarus in three sets at Louis Armstrong Stadium.   It is the second time Japan has had players in the quarterfinals of both the men's and women's singles. Japan’s last victory was in 1995 with Shuzo Matsuoka and Kimiko Date both reached the last eight of the men's and women's draws.   [caption id="attachment_200620" align="aligncenter" width="650"] Photo credit to: https://www.straitstimes.com[/caption]  ...
