LONDON (AFP) - Japanese 10th seed Kei Nishikori made it through to the last 16 at Wimbledon for the first time on Monday, taking four games to finish off Italian lucky loser Simon Bolelli.

Their third round contest was suspended at 3-6, 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), 3-3 in fading light on Saturday and Nishikori returned two days later to win the deciding set 6-4.

The Japanese faces Canadian eighth seed Milos Raonic for a place in the quarter-finals.
