Brandon Nakashima vs Aleksandar Vukic – Match Predictions

Both Nakashima and Vukic have winning career record on grass and we are expecting a good match on Monday.

Brandon Nakashima -2.5 games

Nakashima is the better overall player than Vukic. He has been regular at the top tournaments in the last couple of years, while Vukic does not even find a spot in the qualifiers on a regular basis. This will be the second time these two meet on grass, and the first time they did, Nakashima lost only two games. This time he will not be that dominant but will definitely win by covering the -2.5 games spread.

Under 22.5 games

Vukic has a winning record this season which is a good sign for him, but if you take a look at the level of the tournaments and his opponents, it is clear that he is not on the level of his next opponent. Nakashima serves very well and moves quickly on grass, which will be enough for him to win this quite easily in straight sets and under 22.5 games.

Both players are pretty far from the top of the tennis world. Nakashima is the better one, but Vukic is the one with a winning record in 2023.

Brandon Nakashima

Nakashima is 54th in the world, and he has never been ranked higher than No. 43. The American is 8-11 for the season and 1-2 on grass.

This will be his second appearance in Eastbourne after last year, Nakashima lost to Cameron Norrie in the round of 16. His best result this year was the semifinal in Lyon.

Aleksandar Vukic

Vukic is currently the 92nd player in the world, which is one spot lower than his career best. The Australian has been very active this season and has a 36-19 record for the season, including 2-3 on grass. Vukic went through the qualifying tournament in Eastbourne, defeating Arthur Ferry and Skander Mansouri, both in straight sets. Last week, at the Queen’s Club Championships, Vukic lost in the qualifiers to Grigor Dimitrov 6-3, 6-4. Vukic won one lower-level tournament this year in Busan.
