Predictions for the ATP Quarterfinals in Washington

Daniel Evans vs. Yoshihito Nishioka

Head to Head – Nishioka 4-0 Evans

There’s something about Yoshihito Nishioka’s game that Daniel Evans don’t like to face. The Brit is 0-4 against the Japanese and the topspin-heavy left forehand poses problems for Evans’ one-handed player. At the start of this tournament both players had a mediocre season in 2022 and this is the final stretch of the season to salvage their respective seasons.

While Evans grabbed a free kick from Taylor Fritz in his round of 16, Nishioka’s run so far has been pretty impressive. In Alex de Minaur and Karen Khachanov, the Japanese has brought two top-class opponents on their toes. All in all, it again points to a victory for the brave Nishioka.
Prediction: Nishioka in 3

Frances Tiafoe vs Nick Kyrgios

Head to Head – First encounter

Frances Tiafoe put together a decent set of results last week in Atlanta and now in Washington, DC.

The Aussie appears to have taken the same form as he did at Wimbledon, which is refreshing to see. On the court, Kyrgios has the bigger serve and backhand, and if he can limit his mistakes on the forehand side, he should be the one moving on.
Prognosis: Kyrgios in the 2nd

Sebastian Korda vs Mikael Ymer

Head to Head – First encounter

Sebastian Korda seems to have started to find his groove after losing in the opening round in Atlanta last week. He overcame his toughest test yet by defeating the talented Grigor Dimitrov, with the third set being a one-sided affair.

He now faces Mikael Ymer who is one of them The climb begins in SwedenI’m still looking for the next step on the main tour. Ymer wasn’t in great shape when he started the tournament, but beating Andy Murray seems to have given him some confidence. All in all, it should be an intriguing watch between two young players, but it looks like Korda has the superior firepower off the baseline and on serve.
Prognosis: Korda in the 2nd

Andrey Rublev vs JJ Wolf

Head to Head – First encounter

It’s going to be an interesting match. Andrey Rublev is a power hitter from both wings and JJ Wolf is as persistent as they come. These two have never met before, which makes this match all the more intriguing. That being said, their previous seasons have been a contrast in results.

Rublev is having a great season having already won three titles while his favorite part of the season is underway. Wolf, on the other hand, goes into this tournament 4-4 but looks dangerous this week. Expect Wolf to score a set, but Rublev should be consistent enough to claim the win.
Prediction: Rublev in 3
