Let’s take a look at the Japan Open odds to make the best tennis predictions today.
Karatsev to win 2-0 @ 1/1 (2.00)
In the previous two rounds, the Japanese player was on the verge of elimination. The Russian player, on the other hand, won all of his games in straight sets.
This was Mochizuki’s first time advancing past the first round of a top-tier competition. Considering these factors, I believe Karstsev will win in two sets.
Under 22.5 games @ 3/4 (1.75)
Aslan Karatsev’s last two matches were both under 20.5 games. Shintsro Mochizuki has proven to be a tough opponent, and I believe he will extend the match. Still, I believe there will be no more than 22.5 games in this match.
Shintaro Mochizuki vs Aslan Karatsev odds
According to the major bookies, Aslan Karatsev has an 80% chance of beating tournament sensation Shintsro Mochizuki. The Japanese player’s youth and his position in the ATP rankings do not favour him in the statistics.
Mochizuki vs Karatsev: The Japanese is a sensation at home
There is some news about Karatsev and Mochizuki, so more tennis match predictions.
It was a fresh experience for the Japanese tennis player to face several top players for the first time at the Japan Open 2023. Despite struggling in the last two rounds, Shintaro Mochizuki accomplished the impossible and is now one of the competition’s four remaining players. The fact that the 20-year-old is playing at home makes it even more meaningful.
Aslan Karatsev reached the semi-finals again, exactly as in Zhuhai a few weeks ago. He will, by chance, meet another Japanese opponent. That time, the Russian player was defeated by Yoshihito Nishioka. Karatsev has learned his lesson and understands that he cannot afford to be irresponsible or he will meet the same fate as his father.
Mochizuki vs Karatsev Head to Head
This is the first match between the two players, who have extremely distinct playing styles. Both had more than 30 wins this season, with Aslan Karatsev having greater merit due to the caliber of competition in which he has competed.
