Kei Nishikori chalked up his 50th career Grand Slam win on Monday when he finished his rain-delayed opening match at the French Open, resuming play with a two-set advantage gained a day earlier and completing a straight-sets win over Italy’s Simone Bolelli, 6-1, 7-5, 6-3.

Starting with a 2-1 lead in the third set, Nishikori went on to grab a break and go up 5-3. He fended off two break points in the final game and served up an ace for the victory.
