Spaniard Starts Strongly in Milan

Alcaraz is hoping to cap what has already been a year of considerable achievement – breaking into the top 100 and then making the top 40, winning his maiden ATP title, reaching the quarter-final of a Grand Slam and a Masters event – by lifting the trophy in Milan.

And he made a strong start by winning his opening round robin match with the Dane, Holger Vitus Nodskov Rune, in straight sets.

The first set – following the first to four games format, was close, although Rune did have to save three set points. It then went to a tie-break where Rune save two more set points, before Alcaraz converted at the fifth opportunity.

The second set went with serve until the fifth game when the Norwegian was broken once more,  Rune was not to win another game as Alcaraz closed out the set and then breezed through the third to love. The Spaniard did not face a break point against him in the entire match.

Nakashima Overcomes Argentine Challenge

Although Nakashima’s record in 2021 is more modest when compared to Alcaraz’s, it has still been a good year for the American who reached back to back finals in July in Los Cabos and Atlanta on the senior tour, and who has won two Challenger titles, the most recent in France two weeks ago.

He began his campaign against arguably the weakest player in Group A, the clay court specialist Juan Manuel Cerundulo, the world number 93 from Argentina, and made a winning start, although it was not completely smooth sailing.

The American began well enough, breaking the Cerundulo serve early, and, although the Argentine saved four set points, Nakashima made the fifth count.

But then Cerundulo showed he was a tough competitor by saving break points in the second set and forcing a tie break, which he eventually won.

However, the American broke the Argentine early in the third set, had two match points, and then swept through the fourth set without losing a game and conceding only one point on his own service.

Alcaraz v Nakashima Prediction and Tip

Alcaraz is the stand-out player in the field this year, and, having beaten Nakashima in their one previous meeting, will start the clear favourite to do so again.
