Fourth seed Miomir Kecmanovic of Serbia will face sixth seed Brandon Nakashima of the U.S. in the quarterfinal of the 2022 ATP Los Cabos Open.
Miomir Kecmanovic’s already stellar season just got even better as the Serb defeated Jordan Thompson in straight sets in the second round of the Los Cabos Open to advance to his sixth quarterfinal of the year. The fourth seed required just one hour and 13 minutes to defeat the Australian 6-4, 6-2. This was the fourth seed’s first match since losing to Novak Djokovic in the third round of Wimbledon. Kecmanovic dropped just seven points on his first serve and five points on his second serve, and he did not encounter a single break point throughout the entire match. He was strong on returns as well, breaking Thompson twice in the lopsided second set after doing so once in the first.
The season for 20-year-old Brandon Nakashima has been excellent thus far, and it got even better on Wednesday when he defeated Australia’s Max Purcell in straight sets to advance to the quarterfinals in Los Cabos. The Australian was defeated 6-3, 6-3 by the World No. 61 on Wednesday in the second round after one hour and 17 minutes of play. Nakashima reached his second consecutive quarterfinal by winning 74 percent of the points he served, saving 4 of 5 break points, and converting 4 of 7 opportunities. The 20-year-old started this year’s Los Cabos tournament with a 7-6 (7-1), 6-2 victory over Japan’s Kaichi Uchida. This year’s Wimbledon tournament saw the young player achieve his greatest Grand Slam achievement by reaching the fourth round.
