Yoshihito Nishioka cruised to a straight-sets victory over Lu Yen-hsun of Taiwan to claim the gold medal in the men’s singles tournament at the 17th Asian Games on Tuesday.

Nishioka, the fifth seed here, beat No. 1 seed Lu 6-2, 6-2 to become the first Japanese player in 40 years to win an Asian Games championship. Toshiro Sakai was the last to accomplish the feat at the 1974 Tehran Asian Games.
