Aleksandar Vukic vs Brandon Nakashima – Match Predictions

With both players setting their sights on a round of 32 spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Aleksandar Vukic to Win a Set

It’s important to point out that Aleksandar Vukic played in the Atlanta Open final a couple of days ago, and was just a set away from winning the title. On the other hand, Brandon Nakashima crashed out in the second round of the Atlanta Open at the hands of Chris Eubanks. It’s worth mentioning that Nakashima surrendered at least one set in eight of his last nine singles matches; and considering he lost to Aleksandar Vukic a couple of months ago, we are fairly confident that the Australian player will not go down in straight sets.

Over 22.5 Total Games

It may interest you to know that these players have been involved in their fair share of three-setters recently. On one hand, three of Aleksandar Vukic’s last four matches ended in three sets, and seven of his last matches in best-of-three events featured 22 games or more. Likewise, seven of Brandon Nakashima’s last nine matches (including best-of-five tournaments) ended in maximum sets. As a matter of fact, these players clashed two months ago, and they ended up playing three tiebreaks in the same match. On that note, we are taking the over 22.5 games option.
