LONDON - Kei Nishikori of Japan advanced to the third round at Wimbledon for the third consecutive year with a 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 win Thursday over 21-year-old American qualifier Denis Kudla.

The 10th-seeded Nishikori, making his 20th appearance in a Grand Slam, has had contrasting fortunes in majors this season, making it to the fourth round at the Australian Open and losing in the first round at the French Open.

Nishikori will play either Simone Bolelli or Philipp Kohlschreiber in the third round, where he's lost both matches in the past two years.
