TOKYO (Reuters) -Kei Nishikori kept Japan's tennis medal hopes alive with a tough, three-set victory in the men's singles on Tuesday, hours after compatriot Naomi Osaka was eliminated from the women's event in one of the biggest upsets of the Tokyo Games. Nishikori, who won the bronze medal at the Rio Games in 2016, said he was feeling confident on the court though admitted that it was tough playing at home with crowds absent from matches amid strict pandemic restrictions in the capital. Nishikori won a close tiebreak over the big-hitting American in the first set but could not recover after going down an early break in the second, taking the match to a decider.
