[...] Kei Nishikori continued his push to become the highest-ranked Japanese player in the history of the South African Airways ATP Rankings, defeating Portuguese lucky loser Rui Machado 6-1, 6-4 to book his place in the third round. Nishikori is currently two spots back of Shuzo Matsuoka’s career-high ranking of No. 46, achieved in 1992, and could move into the low 40s with a deep run in Barcelona this week.
Nishikori, a finalist earlier this month at the clay-court tournament in Houston, will next play Spain’s Feliciano Lopez, who knocked out 12th-seeded countryman Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-7(2), 6-3, 6-4.
