World No. 5 Kei Nishikori safely advanced to the third round of the BNP Paribas Open with a 6-3, 6-4 straight-sets victory over Daniel Evans in the men’s singles on Sunday.

After allowing his British opponent to seize the first break point in the opening game at Indian Wells Tennis Garden, Nishikori, one of 32 top seeds who received first-round byes, turned the tide and hardly broke a sweat in the 1 hour, 24-minute match.
