LONDON — Kei Nishikori is into the second round at Wimbledon after beating American qualifier Christian Harrison 6-2, 4-6, 7-6 (3), 6-2.

The 24th-seeded Nishikori saw off Harrison’s attempt at a comeback by claiming a tight third set, before cruising to victory in the fourth.

Nishikori, the top-ranked Japanese player at the tournament, will next face another Australian, Bernard Tomic, who made the first-round draw as a lucky loser and took full advantage by defeating Hubert Hurkacz of Poland 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (2).
