    Cilic, Nishikori collide in round of 32 US Open seed Marin Cilic looks to extend his run at the tournament, as he takes on fellow seed Kei Nishikori Saturday afternoon. The players are joined in action by 15th seed Milos Raonic, who faces former World No. 4 James Blake.

    Nishikori defeated American Tim Smyczek in the second round, 6-2, 6-2, 6-4. The 24-year-old remains on track to book his second berth in the US Open round of 16.
