Casper Ruud vs Yoshihito Nishioka, Head-to-Head, Preview, Betting Tips and Live Stream- Korea Open 2022

On Friday, the top seed Casper Ruud will play Yoshihito Nishioka, ranked 56th in the world, in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Korea Open.

Ruud faced Nicolas Jarry in the second round after receiving a bye in the opening round. Given his year, he was expected to win the match rather handily, but it ended up going to three sets. He had a solid start, taking the first set by storm, winning 4-0. This disadvantage was too much for his opponent to overcome, and the Norwegian went on to win the opening set. In the second set, the tide turned against the players. In the sixth game of the set, the World No. 2 made the crucial break to take a 4-2 lead. Soon after, Ruud stepped up to wrap things up, and it took him four match points to finally win 6-2, 3-6, 6-3.

To start his campaign in Seoul, Yoshihito Nishioka defeated Dan Evans, the fifth seed, for his sixth straight victory. In the following round, he faced off against fellow countryman Taro Daniel. From the outset, Nishioka was focused and won the opening set with a five-game run. Since both players maintained a consistent level of serve for the most of the second set, it was a little more competitive. In the ninth game of the set, Nishioka gained the upper hand, and she served out the match in the ensuing game to win 6-2, 6-4.
