Our favourite Yoshihito Nishioka vs Aslan Karatsev – match predictions

Both Yoshihito and Aslan have impressed in Zhuhai and will be gunning to get the better of the other. Jan Lennard Struff was the latest to fall to the Japanese ace while British number 1, Cameron Norrie bowed down to the Russian’s brilliance.

Aslan Karatsev to win @ 77/100 (1.77)

Nishioka and Karatseve met for the only time in Paris Masters last year with the former triumphing in straight sets. While this result offers Nishioka a psychological edge, both players have evolved since then, making their rematch in Zhuhai a fascinating battle of progress and adaptation. It is Aslan who has defeated the far superior competitors including Andy Murray, Matteo Arnaldi and Cameron Norrie. He seems to have the better momentum and should triumph over Nishioka for a place in the Zhuhai Championship finals.

Over 22.5 Games @ 83/100 (1.83)

Murray and Arnaldi were taken to deep waters and made to submit in marathon battles. Norries submitted to his will in straight sets but that duel saw 26 games across two tiebreakers to finish in his favour. Nishioka has been in fine form and will fancy his chances of getting the better of Karatsev. That will be a tall order as the Russian has found a way to get past his rivals thanks to sheer resilience. Neither will be a pushover and we expect this duel to see at least 22.5 games before finding a conclusion.

With the season coming to a close, his early-season struggles seemed to vanish as he found his rhythm during the Zhuhai Championships. The Japanese player has two previous title wins in the region and arrives in the semi-finals with newfound determination.

Karatsev’s career has been defined by sporadic brilliance, and his performances in Zhuhai is no exception. His remarkable comeback against Cameron Norrie in the quarterfinals showcased his ability to rise to the occasion, even after trailing in both sets. However, like Nishioka, his inconsistency week-to-week remains a concern, as he alternates between outstanding weeks and lacklustre ones. This was exhibited by Karatsev’s season started with promise, including a semifinal run in Pune and a standout performance at the Madrid Masters. Despite these highlights, his inability to maintain consistency has been a recurring theme.
