No. 1 seed for the Japan Open 2023 Taylor Fritz was eliminated from the competition after losing to Shintsro Mochizuki, one of the event’s Wildcards. Alexei Popyrin, who just eliminated Cristian Garin, will now face the Japanese player. Few anticipated to see these two players in the Tokyo quarter-finals, but they will now go for more.

Our favourite Shintaro Mochizuki vs Alexei Popyrin predictions

Let’s take a look at the Japan Open odds to make the best tennis predictions today.

Popyrin to win 2-0 @ 1/1 (2.00)

With victories over Etcheverry and, most recently, Taylor Fritz, the 20-year-old has been surprisingly impressive. Even though his hopes have risen, Mochizuki lost four consecutive loses before entering the Japan Open 2023.

Alexei Poopyrin hasn’t made much of an impression this year, but he does have at least one ATP 250 championship to his record. The 24-year-old has also mostly competed in the season’s most important competitions. Popyrin, I believe, will not waste this opportunity and will demonstrate his hierarchy by winning in straight sets.

Under 22.5 games @ 3/4 (1.75)

Mochizuki had lost the first set 0-6 against Taylor Fritz in the previous round. The American player became complacent and did not play as hard in the second and third sets, which cost him the match.

Popyrin needs wins to enhance his record this season, and we should expect him to concentrate on the previous two rounds. As a result, Shintaro would have little opportunity to deal with his opponent, and the bout would end prematurely.

Shintaro Mochizuki vs Alexei Popyrin odds

According to the main bookmakers, Alexei Popyrin has a 71.4% chance of winning. One element influencing this number is Shintaro Mochizuki’s lack of experience, as he has only competed in a few high-level events this year.
