Yoshihito Nishioka v Jack Sock Head to Head

There have been two previous matches between these players and both came on hard court surfaces and in 2017. Nishioka won the first in Acapulco in three sets and was leading 4-2 in the first set of the second match at Miami before having to retire from his match.

Nishioka 9-14 This Season

It is safe to say it’s not been the kind of season Nishioka would have liked.

He has won just nine of the 23 main draw matches he’s played this season and enters this second round match after getting a bye in the first which might imply he needs some time to readjust and get down to business as compared to his opponent who comes in having played the opener.

Nishioka’s grass sojourn this season before this hasn’t been one to remember either. Playing in Eastbourne, he fell to Andreas Seppi, and while he shocked John Isner in the first round at Wimbledon – clearly the highlight of his entire year – the Japanese player was then crushed by Aljaz Bedene in the second.

He won a mere three games in that match, which should make this an interesting contest to watch. Can he recover from that Bedene pumelling quickly enough?

Sock Wins on Grass After Four Years

The last time Sock won a match on grass was in 2017 at Wimbledon. He lost in the second round there, and a combination of factors including form issues and fitness problems meant the American hasn’t done anything of note since.

This year has been a year to attempt a comeback for Sock, a former world number eight who has fallen to 231st in the world. And as a result of that he has been playing in Challenger competitions alone attempting to rake in enough ranking points.

In the seven Challenger tournaments he played before his wild-card here at Newport, Sock had won 11 matches to his seven defeats. This included a title win at Little Rock Challenger, which was followed by a first round exit at Orlando.

Here in Newport, Sock overcame the loss of the first set to defeat Australia’s Alex Bolt in a tough three-setter. Can he now take advantage of Nishioka’s potential uncertainties?

Nishioka v Sock Prediction and Tip

Interestingly Sock starts off as a favourite at 4/5 to win this but does he really hold that much of an edge? We can expect a fight, that’s for sure and a three-setter could be the result of that.
