Defending champion Kei Nishikori toppled giant American Sam Querrey 7-6 Sean Mannion Jersey , 6-3 to reach the quarterfinals of the Japan Open on Wednesday despite failing to really catch fire.

Second seed Nishikori, who was dazzling in canary-yellow shirt, headband and sneakers, struggled with a swirling wind in the early skirmishes in Tokyo before discovering his mojo in the first-set tiebreak.

He raced through it 7-3 after a -dipping forehand forced the 1.98-meter Querrey into a wild miss.

Nishikori then secured an early break in the second set with an exquisite drop shot to afford himself the breathing space required to truly find his range.

The homegrown talent finished in style, belting a backhand down the line to set up match point and plunging home the dagger with an acrobatic smash. He celebrated with a pump of the fist and a toothy grin at coach -Michael Chang.

"It was very important to keep my focus against such a big server," said Nishikori Pharoh Cooper Jersey , who is bidding to win a third Japan Open in four years and next faces Croatia's Marin Cilic, the player who beat him in the 2014 US Open final.

"The first-set tiebreak was key," added Nishikori, chasing a fourth title of the year and the 11th of his career.

"After that I was able to relax a -little and I think I played some pretty -decent tennis. But I know it's going to get much tougher from here."

French Open champion Stan -Wawrinka is also likely to provide a stern test to Nishikori's championship -credentials this week. The Swiss top seed defeated Japan's Tatsuma Ito 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 in Wednesday's late match.

Third seed Gilles Simon blew past Czech Jiri Vesely 6-4 John Kelly Jersey , 6-2 to reach the last eight.

"It's a very tough tournament to win," the Frenchman told AFP of an event won in the past by such luminaries as John McEnroe, Ivan Lendl, Pete Sampras, Stefan Edberg and R-oger Federer.

"It's not one you win by chance. Each time the winner had been in the top 10 or not far outside. It would be a great achievement but you need to be playing at a really high level."

Seventh seed Feliciano Lopez from Spain had nothing left in the tank -after reaching last week's final in -Kuala Lumpur and was dumped out 6-4, 4-6 John Franklin-Myers Jersey , 6-1 by Portugal's Joao Sousa in a first-round match.

Sixth seed Cilic won his opener against American Donald Young 7-5, 5-7, 6-4, while Luxembourg's Gilles Muller beat Frenchman Jeremy -Chardy 7-6, 7-6 to set up a quarterfinal against Simon.

He said that a Chinese delegation has visited Lebanon and inspected the proposed site for the project, and it will be further discussed later this month.

Khouri revealed that Lebanon and China will sign on the sidelines of the Belt and Road Forum in Beijing a memorandum of understanding on the executive program of the cultural exchange agreement.

"We will take the opportunity of visiting China to develop our relations and meet friends Rob Havenstein Rams Jersey , who are working in the cultural field, to increase our cooperation and exchange experiences," he said.
