Kei Nishikori brushes Viktor Troicki aside in Miami
Japan`s Kei Nishikori took just over an hour to romp to a 6-2 6-2 victory over Serbian Viktor Troicki and secure a place in the fourth round of the ATP and WTA Miami Masters on Monday.
Asia`s top player -- who reached the semi-finals in Miami last year -- will play the winner of the match between Poland`s Jerzy Janowicz and David Goffin of Belgium.
Nishikori sent down five aces, 16 winners and broke Troicki, ranked 39 in the world, on five of six break points in a truly dominant performance.
The 25-year-old, who reached his first Grand Slam final last year the US Open where he lost to Marin Cilic, beat David Ferrer and Roger Federer on his way to the semi-finals last year only to withdraw prior to his match with Novak Djokovic due to a groin injury.
