Yoshihito Nishioka vs Nikoloz Basilashvili – Prediction (ATP Cup Australia – 06.01.2020)

Nishioka Y. (Jpn) vs Basilashvili N. (Geo). Preview and players comparison.

Both of these players playing to their full ability would see Nikoloz Basilashvili winning this matchup. However, Yoshihito Nishioka is a bit more consistent and is expected to have equal chances as the pair meet for the first time.

Yoshihito Nishioka was one of the top-performers on Day Two of the ATP Cup as he raced to a 6-0 6-1 win over the world #45 and Uruguayan #1 Pablo Cuevas. The Japanese broke Cuevas’ serve five times in the match and did not expose a breakpoint chance on his serve during this win.
World #24 Yoshihito Nishioka, for the third consecutive season, faced a lot of fitness problems in 2019 but still managed to deliver decent results, such as progressing to the quarterfinal in Sydney and Cincinnati Masters.

Nikoloz Basilashvili, being the Georgian #1, got a tough assignment as he had to come up against the Spanish #1 Rafael Nadal. The Georgian did put in a valiant effort as he broke the Spaniard’s serve in the very first game of the match and recovered from a double break deficit in the second set, 3-6 5-7. World #26 Nikoloz Basilashvili, who became the first player from Georgia to win an ATP Tour title when he triumphed in Hamburg in 2018, didn’t have the greatest of seasons in 2019, but he successfully defended the ATP Hamburg title, which secured his place inside the top 30 of ATP World Rankings.
