Instead, it resembled their 2010 second-round match in Flushing Meadows, when Nishikori rallied to win in five sets in 4:59, the fifth-longest men's singles match by time in U.S. Open history.
Millman took the court against Novak Djokovic on Thursday AEST for an unlikely spot in the semi-finals.
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.
The breakthrough also marked the first time that a Japanese man and woman made the quarter-finals of any Grand Slam since Kimiko Date and Shuzo Matsuoka at the 1995 Wimbledon.
Against Tsurenko, Osaka barely broke a sweat, winning, 6-1, 6-1.
Osaka, who is just 20 years old, is having a terrific 2018 season.
"He apologised for going to change [clothes] in the second set but I said "it's OK, I need the rest".
The player who can survive the heat and the humidity will have an upper hand and can win the match as the players are struggling with the heat at the Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Djokovic moved a step closer to a third championship at Flushing Meadows and 14th Grand Slam title overall by eliminating Millman 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 in the quarterfinals.
At the start of the match, Cilic has beaten Nishikori. But he couldn't capitalize and Djokovic took the first set 6-3.

Iran also has proxies in the region including Lebanon's Hezbollah . "So they said they were not going to sign this statement". If Iran is threatened , it could also strike Israeli cities with missiles, said the elite corps.
That made it all the more surprising that the 28-year-old allowed his advantage to slip, missing a break point that would have given him a 5-1 lead and then being pegged back to 4-4.
Within the semifinals, Djokovic will play towards the Japanese Kay Nishikori, who earlier defeated Marin Cilic with the rating 6:2, four:6, 6:7, 6:four, four:6.
"I hate matches like this", Tsurenko said.
It is the first time in the Open era that Japan is represented in the semi-finals of both the main draws at the same grand slam.
Schiavone said: "I arrived at this decision to say goodbye to tennis with my heart, because my head, when I arrived here, said, "please go to the court, fight, because I can beat many other players". That all changed in the middle of the second set, when the Croat with the score 4:2 managed to lose four games in a row.
Novak Djokovic will play in his 11th consecutive U.S. Open semifinal after outlasting John Millman late Wednesday in NY.
He said: "He's got one of the best two-handed backhands in the game and very quick". I have lost - probably the biggest match I lost against him was here back in 2014, I think, in semis.
@kelli_green added: "millman's gonna get hit with reality tonight... he caught federer on an off night when the weather was so hot." b***, it was hot for millman too and he beat the #2 guy in the world. if he loses to djokovic tonight it won't be because he's a chump. mcenroe is a d***. He was able to come through on only four of his 20 break points.
But he broke back in the match's next-to-last game, then served out the victory at love.
Cilic, who won their final meeting in straight sets, was pushed to the limit this time around with Nishikori extending his dominance to nine wins from 15 meetings. "Especially after coming from injury, I think I'm enjoying this challenge".
