Kei Nishikori became the first player to progress to the quarter-finals of the 2016 Swiss Indoors on Wednesday after beating Paolo Lorenzi in straight sets, 7-6 (3), 6-2.

The tournament's No. 3 seed didn't concede a single break of serve throughout the fixture—including the first-set tiebreak—and built on an impressive opener before downing his Italian foe in some style. Juan Martin del Potro also advanced after ousting Robin Haase from the running with a 6-3, 6-4 win.

American Jack Sock kept his hopes of winning in Basel, Switzerland, alive by dominating France's Adrian Mannarino 6-3, 6-3, while seventh-seeded Richard Gasquet was forced to retire in the second set of his clash against Guido Pella.

Pablo Carreno Busta also notched a comfortable straight-sets win over Fernando Verdasco, beating his Spanish compatriot 7-5, 6-3, and Mischa Zverev dominated American Taylor Fritz 7-6 (3), 6-0.

Read on for a breakdown of Wednesday's results from the 2016 Swiss Indoors, complete with a recap of the day's action and a look toward Thursday's schedule:



                 

Recap After spending three weeks on the sidelines with an injury, Nishikori continued his winning return to the court on Wednesday, notching a confident 7-6 (3), 6-2 victory over Lorenzi in one hour, 40 minutes.

The Japanese contender trailed his Italian opponent for a grand total of one game over the course of the entire match, and TennisTV showed Nishikori had the gumption to showcase a little bit of flair:



He wasn't the only one in firing form in front of the Basel crowd on Wednesday, however, as Sock waltzed his way to a 6-3, 6-3 victory against Mannarino, needing only an hour to ease into the second round.

There, Sock will face off against Marcel Granollers, who defeated Henri Laaksonen on Tuesday to advance.
