Novak Djokovic of Serbia celebrates match point against John Millman of Australia in a quarter-final match on day ten of the 2018 U.S. Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
Cilic recovered to force a decider but Nishikori edged through 2-6 6-4 7-6 (7-5) 4-6 6-4 in four hours eight minutes.
"If not "the" quickest, then one of the quickest players on the tour".
Despite this being the first US Open with the expensive roofs in place, the new coverings only closed briefly on August 31 due to passing rain showers.
Wheelchair tennis has been around for more than four decades with 120 professional events in 80 countries, but only recently become a mainstay all four Grand Slams.
Superstars Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic have both taken issue with the decision to leave the roof at Arthur Ashe and Louis Armstrong Stadiums open during matches.
"There are so many people that stayed at the stadium and its past midnight".

She's even played at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center grounds before. "I don't dream to lose", she said. She has won six of her 23 major titles in NY , and with a victory would equal Margaret Court's record.
Keys is that far for the fourth time in her career.
Cilic had been forced to work harder during the previous four rounds, rallying from two sets down against Alex De Minaur in the third round, but he showed no signs of fatigue in an opening set that flashed by in 36 minutes. With the score 1-1 in the second set, Djokovic was seen motioning to those in his player's box between points. We've witnessed throughout our rivalries in 10, 15 years, there are periods and intervals where I win couple matches in a row, then they win couple matches in a row. That was at Wimbledon in 1995, and both Shuzo Matsuoka and Kimiko Date lost in that round.
It's another scorching hot day in NY and that means the extreme heat policy is back in effect for the third consecutive day at the U.S. Open. Mini-breaks were aplenty - seven in total - and it was Nishikori's mind games which tricked Cilic into surrendering the set.
The policy is a rule on the women's tour, but not the men's.
"I always thought if I can keep up with him (Nishikori), that would be really cool".
The No. 20 seed continued what's been a largely dominant run through the draw by winning in just 57 minutes, the third time in her five matches she didn't even have to play an hour.

Passersby tried to similarly warn a woman not to enter the building, but she couldn't hear them over her headphones. He said one investigator said it could have been "a bloodbath beyond imagination". "After that I started running".
The No. 7 seed faces No. 21 Kei Nishikori on Wednesday, four years after beating the Japanese player for his first Grand Slam title.
The win meant that Djokovic advanced to his 11th straight U.S. semifinal - a streak only bettered by Jimmy Connors.
But he hasn't returned to a Grand Slam final since, falling in the US Open semis in 2016.
The No. 21 seed continued his strong season after returning from a wrist injury that forced him to miss the U.S. Open past year and will play No. 6 seed Novak Djokovic on Friday.
On the women's side, American Madison Keys, last year's runner-up, looks to return to the semifinals for the second straight year against Carla Suarez Navarro.
