Neither Kei Nishikori nor Fernando Verdasco will be happy with the draw for the opening round of ATP 500 in Halle as they are set to take on each other for the seventh time in their careers Interestingly, it will be their third head to head encounter this year after the Japanese superstar claimed back-to-back wins in Miami and at Roland Garros to make it 4-2 in their H2H stats.
Their r16 encounter in Paris was especially intriguing since Nando dropped a bagel on Kei in the opening set only to lose the following three sets and suffer elimination after a generally decent campaign in the second grand slam of the season.
Kei had had pretty much of a rollercoaster season with Buenos Aires final (loss to Aleksandr Dolgopolov in two sets) as the highlight. The World No 9 is hoping to make a breakthrough on the grass where he generally can produce strong campaigns. Kei is set as the third seed in Halle where he played back-to-back semifinals in 2014 and 2015. It will be very interesting to see how far he can get this year in both Halle and Wimbledon. We’d say not too far unless he changed something dramatically during a two-week break.
Verdasco is far from his bets tennis, but he still remains a formidable force capable of beating anyone on his day. This is just what he proved in Paris by shocking the NextGen Alexander Zverev in the opening round of French Open. His game is far more suited to clay than grass where he did not leave a significant mark since 2013 and the quarterfinal of Wimbledon.
Nishikori is a favourite, just as the odds suggest, but we’ll skip any high stakes bets here. Since the Japanese is also miles away from his best tennis, the best shout would be backing Over 22.5 games at 17/20 or even a three-setter at 8/5.
