Thomspon - Nishioka
In the first round of ATP Masters in Cincinnati Jordan Thompson from Australia will play against Japanese player Yoshito Nishioka. Thompson is currently ranked at 49th place while Nishioka is ranked at 77th position on ATP Tour. The best ranking of Australian tennis players is 43rd spot while of Japanese is 58th. Even tough Nishioka had more success in last couple of matches with Thompson I think that Jordan will win this match . He had been playing decently and he had some great success this season. I think it is time for him to return to winning ways. He must serve his best to win here. They have played 4 times and three win for Nishioka and that could be only reason he is favorite. But last match was won by Jordan in great way. He had some success in qualifiers but Millman and Sousa are in worse form than Jordan. Nishioka s previous best result here were qualifiers and Thompson will have his debut here. Even tough he is more hard court player Thompson had more success on grass and clay this season, I believe this is the tournament where he can get to 3rd or 4th round. To do that he will have to beat two Japanese with similar names Nishioka and Nishikori ;) Nishioka s best result this season is QF from Sydney and that was at the start of year in January. Thompson had final in Hertogenbosch, Final in Nanchang and many QF s on high level tournaments.Pick: 1
