Khachanov K. - Nishikori K.
This should be one of the more interesting matches in the first round of the Masters in Madrid. Karen Khachanov will fight against Kei Nishikori for the second round of this tournament.
This will be the fifth match between these two players. In one first set they played the tenth game, but did not play on clay before this tournament, so we should not expect one of the two to be convincing in the first match on clay.
Khachanov has a slightly better chance for win before the start of this match, but he was not convincing in the previous two tournaments on clay, so he should not be expected to have an advantage in the first set of this match.
Nishikori won the set against Nadal on clay, just before this tournament, he played pretty well in that tournament, so he shouldn t be any worse in the first set of this match, which should be enough to reach to four games in the first set of this match.
