Brandon Nakashima v Holger Rune Head to Head
The two will be facing each other for the first time.
Nakashima Goes Down to Garcia
Fourth seed Brandon Nakashima went down to Carlos Garcia in straight sets in his second match of the ATP Next Gen Finals, thus making his last round robin match against Carlos Rune a virtual quarterfinal.
Both Nakashima and Rune defeated the fifth seed Juan Manuel Cerundolo in four sets and lost to the top seed Carlos Alcaraz in three and so the winner of their contest on Thursday will make it to the semifinals.
Nakashima, who converted 4 of 11 break points to beat Cerundolo 4-1, 3-4 (3-7), 4-1, 4-0, could convert just one of two break points against Alcaraz, while getting broken twice in a 4-3 (7-4), 4-1, 4-3 (7-4) defeat on Wednesday.
The 20-year-old, ranked No. 63 in the world, had a terrific 15-10 season, which included two runner-up finishes in Los Cabos and Atlanta and a quarterfinal appearance in Antwerp.
Rune Keeps Chances Alive
Outplayed by top seed Carlos Alcaraz in the first Group match, seventh seed Holger Vitus Nodskov Rune kept his chances of reaching the semifinals alive as he defeated Cerundolo 4-1, 4-2, 1-4, 4-1 in his second match of the Group phase on Wednesday.
Rune struck 21 winners to Cerundolo’s 7 and made one less unforced error than the Argentine’s 17. The Dane had 14 break point chances in the match, but he could capitalise on just three of those chances winning the match in 77 minutes.
Rune didn’t hold a single break point in the first match against the Spaniard, going down 3-4, 2-4, 0-4 in an hour and 16 minutes.
The 109th-ranked Rune, who was 6-11 on the tour, which included runs to quarterfinals in Santiago and Metz, is placed at No. 3 in the Group A standings. Although both him and Nakashima have a 1-1 win loss record and a 3-4 sets win-loss record, Rune’s 18-20 games win-loss record is inferior to the American’s 22-18 record.
Nakashima v Rune Prediction and Tip
Expect a cracking contest with Nakashima edging out Rune in more than three sets.
