Kei Nishikori vs Sam Querrey Tennis Prediction
In direct confrontation, Kei Nishikori has little advantage over Sam Querrey.
At the start, Nishikori needed three sets to eliminate Yibing Wu – with 3-6, 6-0, 6-3.
Last week, the Japanese were runner-up of the ATP 500 in Tokyo – lost to Daniil Medvedev in the decision. In fact, it’s no news to anyone that the Japanese do not have a very reliable physique and he comes in a great sequence of games – in a short time.
When physically healthy, Nishikori is one of the best circuit in the baseline. He is very agile, angula very well the blows and is owner of excellent backhand.

On the other side, Querrey also needed three sets in the previous round. He beat Taylor Fritz – with a 6-3, 6-7 (4), 7-5 split.
Against his compatriot, Querrey served very well and gave few breaches to Fritz. Yesterday had already pointed out that Querrey does not make an exuberant season, however, he is able to play at high level in very fast conditions.
I see Nishikori as a favorite, but I have one foot behind in relation to his current physical state. As Querrey performed well in the early rounds, he is aggressive and sucks very well, I believe he will be able to fulfill a +3 games hc.
Bet Tips: Querrey +3 games
