Stan Wawrinka vs Brendan Nakashima Prediction, Head-to-Head, Preview and Live Stream- Basel Open 2022

Stan Wawrinka, a three-time Grand Slam winner, will play World No. 44 Brandon Nakashima on Thursday in the second round of the 2022 Swiss Indoors.

World No. 3 Casper Ruud was Wawrinka’s opponent in the opening round. Both players in the opening set had quick and simple opening serve games. First blood went to the Swiss, who gained a break in the seventh game to take a 4-3 lead. In the very next game, Ruud had three break points to regain serve, but he failed to convert any of them. With ease, Wawrinka quickly served out the set to take the lead. In the second set, the pair successfully defended their serve. Ruud’s late-game performance cost him the match as he dropped serve in the ninth game. In the following match, Wawrinka finished things off by winning 6-4, 6-4.

David Goffin and Brandon Nakashima were paired up in the opening round. The Belgian had a strong opening set, breaking his opponent’s serve twice to take a 5-1 lead. Soon after that, he won the set. In the second set, a tie-break resulted since neither player was able to break the other’s serve. Nakashima triumphed in that match to win the set and necessitate a deciding. The American won a break to go up 3-2 in the fifth game of the final set, then added a hold of his own to make it 4-2. The 20-year-old finished the match to record a comeback victory of 2-6, 7-6(4), and 6-4.

Wawrinka vs Nakashima Prediction

Wawrinka’s backhand must be avoided at all costs by Nakashima, who also needs to be cautious about giving him too many chances to fully utilise it. He can try taking advantage of the 37-year-motion old’s in an effort to provoke some mistakes from him. Nobody will be able to stop the Swiss, though, if he plays with the same fervour as he did in the previous round.
