Laslo Djere to win @ 31/20 (2.55)
Nakashima will have the support of the home crowd but has a tough assignment on his hands. The American ace could only reach the third round at Winston-Salem and will have to knockout quarter-finalist Djere. With the Serbian also reaching the semi-final in Kitzbuhel, he has momentum on his side and should triumph over Nakashima in this first-round encounter.
Over 39.5 Games @ 83/100 (1.83)
Add Nakashima to a match’s equation and you have a battle on your hands. Despite not having the same pedigree as Djere, the American ace’s dogged mentality sets him apart. He has lost three of his last five matches but it has gone to the wire at each time of asking with all five duels requiring a deciding set to find a victor. This was seen in two of Djere’s most recent three defats. With both competitors forcing the issue at each time of taking the court, we expect to see a long-drawn battle with over 39.5 games being seen.
