Japan’s Kei Nishikori eased into the second round of Wimbledon on Tuesday beating Brazilian qualifier Thiago Monteiro 6-4, 7-6 (7/3), 6-4.
The 29-year-old eighth seed, a quarter-finalist at Wimbledon last year, never gave Monteiro a hope of an upset.
Nishikori — whose best Grand Slam performance was reaching the 2014 US Open final — will play either experienced Uzbek Denis Istomin or Britain’s Cameron Norrie in the second round.
