Kei Nishikori Wins Australian Open Classic

Melbourne, Australia (CNN)For the second straight day at the Australian Open, a towering player hit 50 more aces than his shorter opponent .

Japan's Kei Nishikori withstood 59 aces Thursday to defeat Ivo Karlovic 6-3 7-6 (8-6) 5-7 5-7 7-6 (10-7) in three hours, 48 minutes to reach the third round in Melbourne.

It was a gut-wrenching defeat for the 6-foot-11 Croatian given his efforts to force a fifth set -- and because the 39-year-old led by a 7-6 in the final tiebreak.
