Kei Nishikori set up a quarter-final clash at the Australian Open against Stanislas Wawrinka after thrashing David Ferrer 6-3 6-3 6-3 in Melbourne.

The Japanese star, who is currently at number five in the world after reaching the US Open final last year, was far too good for Ferrer, eventually winning the last-16 encounter in just over two hours.

The 25-year-old, who is 12/1 to win the Australian Open outright, broke Ferrer at regular intervals and the Spaniard, who had reached the quarter-finals in Melbourne for the last four years, appeared to be tired following his epic third-round victory against Gilles Simon.

Meanwhile, defending champion Wawrinka was taken to four sets by Guillermo Garcia-Lopez before eventually clinching his place in the quarter-finals after a 7-6 6-4 4-6 7-6 victory.

The 29-year-old Swiss star, who is 11/1 to win the Australian Open outright, said after his latest triumph: "I started to be on my defensive a little bit too much. It was important to win that match. It is great for me to be in the quarter-finals.

"Kei is a tough, tough player. He improved a lot last year. He's a great shot maker. He's always taking the ball really early. It's always tough to play against him. He doesn't give you a lot of time."
