We’re still in the early stages of the 2024 Barcelona Open. But already, big upsets and great matches have materialized. This means we’ve got even more tennis predictions today coming right up for this tournament, and my tips for Etcheverry vs Nakashima are available now.

Our favourite Tomas Martin Etcheverry vs Brandon Nakashima predictions

These two young guns are rising stars in the men’s game. The young Argentinian, Etcheverry, has a better clay court game, in my opinion, than Nakashima. But with Nakashima dismantling the 2nd seed in the previous round of the Barcelona Open, it’s all to play for here.

That said, I’ve gone for the following two markets for Etcheverry vs Nakashima:

Etcheverry to win @ 7/10 (1.70)

The reason that the odds are so appealing for Etcheverry to beat Nakashima is down to the fact that Nakashima beat Rublev last round. If he hadn’t produced such a win, I doubt the odds would be anywhere near this level. And that’s because Etcheverry is a superior clay court player, so I’m taking him for the win.

Over 22.5 games @ 3/4 (1.75)

Although I think that Etcheverry has the edge against Nakashima, I must take the American’s previous win into account. After all, it takes something special to take out a top player like Rublev on any surface. So if he brings that level against Etcheverry, I think this one could be quite tight or even go the distance.

With this match approaching quickly, let me cover some key points to go with the predictions shared above.

Tomas Martin Etcheverry preview

Etcheverry has improved massively over the last 12-18 months. He’s beaten big names in major tournaments, and while many of these results have come on hard courts, he’s still a clay court player at heart. This is typical for Argentinian players, and based on the kind of tennis he played in Monte Carlo and in his previous round, he should beat Brandon Nakashima.

I must give credit where it’s due. The fact that Nakashima took out Rublev is a huge deal, although I question what kind of confidence Rublev has right now. Then again, Nakashima is ranked down at 87 in the world, so there’s every chance that this could have been a freak result. And to be honest, I think he will have a much tougher time against a guy like Etcheverry purely due to the Argentinian’s style of play.

These two guys are pretty similar in age, but they’ve yet to play each other in an ATP sanctioned tournament. Of course, this means one of them will hold a 1-0 lead over the other when this match is finished.
