Japan’s Kei Nishikori is still riding high after reaching the quarter-finals at the Tokyo Olympics, and said on Tuesday he credits that deep run for his recent form in North America as he prepares for the U.S. Open.

Nishikori, who was Japan’s last hope for a singles tennis medal in Tokyo, reached the semis last week in Washington and is now into the second round of the Masters 1000 event in Toronto after a 6-4 6-7(5) 6-2 win over Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic.
