Tennis Prediction of the Day Kei Nishikori vs Roger Federer
I’m betting on a close match between the two players, even if Roger Federer starts out as a big favorite and should stick to this status, but in return games showed some vulnerabilities and Kei Nishikori’s field play is much more solid as the previous opponents of the Swiss. So a balanced game with many games in this quarter finals.

Even though Roger Federer is definitely leaving with Kei Nishikori in the duel on Wednesday, relying on the good shape that the Japanese tennis player crosses, I will bet on at least one set won by the Japanese in this quarter finals at Wimbledon.
