Expert Betting Tips
Although the Japanese striker isn't the largest on the tour, his quickness and agility more than make up for it. Nishioka is also more than capable of engaging opponents head-to-head from the baseline and possesses a deceptively excellent serve.
In the Citi Open final, Kyrgios' sheer power defeated Nishioka, and the same thing may happen here.
