Nishioka vs Opelka Predictions
Opelka mede it through the semifinal defeating Raonic in the semifinal which is much more stronger than Nishioka. The problem for Reilly is that the match with the Canadian was very exhausting and he doesn’t have enough time to rest. Nishioka can surely use his fittness but will the Japanese stand the cannon serving of the American giant? Besides Opelka has more than eight thousand fans supporting him on the venue, that is why it will be difficult for the Yoshihito to win.
- Our prediction: Opelka Will Win.
