As part of the ATP Cup on January 4, Japanese tennis player Yoshihito Nishioka will play with Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas. We offer a forecast for this fight.

Yoshihito Nishioka

Nishioka is a promising tennis player who still lacks stability. On the court, the representative of Japan tries to act at high speeds and fights for each ball. Nishioki’s last tennis tournament in 2019 is the Davis Cup, where he played two fights. In the opening match, the Japanese defeated Gael Monfils (7-5, 6-2), and then lost to Novak Djokovic (1: 6, 2: 6).

Pablo Cuevas

Cuevas is 34 years old. More and more Uruguayan tennis players can be seen in second-rate tournaments. It was at the Challengers that Pablo won two trophies in 2019. The first he registered in April at a tournament in Tunisia (Joao Domingues (7-5, 6-4) was beaten in the final), and in May Cuevas won the tournament in Provence (in the final he beat Kenten Gali (7-5, 3-6, 6-2)).

Statistics and personal meetings

  • For personal meetings leads Cuevas 1-0.
  • Cuevas is 45th in the world ranking, Nishioka is 73rd.

Yoshihito Nishioka vs Pablo Cuevas Predictions

Cuevas does not feel so confident on hard, as when playing on clay courts. The young Nishioki has every chance due to an active game to defeat an older tennis player and thereby take revenge for the defeat at the Australian Open in 2016. We offer to put the Japanese tennis player to victory in the upcoming meeting.
