Seeds Kei Nishikori and Grigor Dimitrov advanced to the quarterfinals of the Brisbane International 2015 after overcoming their respective counterparts in the second round of the tournament.

Whilst second-seeded Nishikori had no troubles toppling American Steve Johnson 6-4, 7-5, fourth seed Dimitrov saved two match-points en route his nervy 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 triumph.

“I have more confidence and I beat a lot of Top 10 guys (in the past) two, three years,” Nishikori was quoted as saying by the ATP World Tour.

He continued: “If I can play good tennis all the time, I think I have a lot of chance to go top level. Hopefully this is going to be a good start.”
