ATP Cincinnati Day 2 Predictions

Aslan Karatsev vs. Brandon Nakashima

Head to head: Karatsev 1-0 Nakashima

Karatsev is in poor form and has lost his last four games in a row. On the American hard courts he left nothing to be desired in two of his matches. The serve isn’t quite there, and you can’t do anything on the fast American courts without a good serve. Nakashima, on the other hand, has put in some good performances in his last two tournaments. Karatsev leads his H2H, but Nakashima should be able to level it now.
Prediction: Nakashima in 3

Albert Ramos Vinolas vs Fabio Fognini

Head to head: Ramos Vinolas 2-9 Fognini

Fognini has slipped to 61st place in the world rankings. As a result, he has to play the qualifying rounds against younger, hungrier opponents, affecting his performance in the peloton. He enters here as a lucky loser. His opponent, Albert Ramos-vinolas, showed better consistency overall. In Montreal he made life difficult for the later runner-up Hubert Hurkacz. When the match gets down to the longer rallies, support Ramos-Vinolas to push through. Fognini has totally dominated their duels so far, but that shouldn’t be the case this time.
Prognosis: Ramos-Vinolas in 3

Marcos Giron vs David Goffin

Head to head: Giron 1-0 Goffin

David Goffin then got his first win Wimbledon in the draw here. Considering his performances in the last two tournaments, Goffin is not best equipped to win this match. Marcos Giron qualified for the peloton without dropping a set. He does his percentage tennis work on the hard courts, with good results. However, his game lacks explosiveness, which is inherently important in Cincinnati. However, this game shouldn’t pose a problem.
Prognosis: Giron in 3rd place

Andy Murray vs Stan Wawrinka

Head to head: Murray 12-9 Wawrinka

Andy Murray climbed the rankings very quickly, jump into the top 50 beautiful. Perhaps the only issue that sticks with his game now is his fitness. On the other hand, Stan Wawrinka has slipped to a miserable 300th place in the rankings. However, he showed some highlights in his match against Ruusuvuori in Montreal. Just a few years ago, this duel was one of the best in tennis. Both players had huge drops in performance. However, Murray has started to bounce back and at the moment he is by far the better player.
Prognosis: Murray in Q2
