The ATP Toronto Round 2 match between Kei Nishikori and Hubert Hurkacz features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Wednesday August 11.
Bet Of The Day August 11 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.
We’re sticking with the Toronto Masters after our success earlier in the week with Reilly Opelka upsetting Nick Kyrgios. Today we focus on the second round clash between Kei Nishikori and Hubert Hurkacz.
The bookies can’t split the pair, but we like the total sets market.
Nishikori has been no stranger to going the distance throughout his career and three of his last four matches have produced three sets.
Hurkacz has also gone three sets in two of his last three matches. Additionally, the only two previous meetings between the pair have seen three sets.
Hurkacz prevailed in both of those encounters in 2019 at the Dubai 500 and Indian Wells Masters.
The Polish player will be competing in his first match since losing to Liam Broady in the second round of the Olympics, while Nishikori already has a match under his belt in Toronto, overcoming Miomir Kecmanovic 6-4 6-7 6-2 in the opening round.
We can expect a closely fought battle again between these two. Hurkacz is playing his first tournament in North America since surging to his maiden Masters 1000 title in Miami back in April, while Nishikori has won eight of his last 10 hardcourt matches.
All signs point to another tight showdown between two players who have had plenty of recent success on this surface.
- Nishikori has seen three sets in three of his last four matches
- Hurkacz has seen three sets in two of his last three matches
- The two previous meetings between the pair have produced three sets
- Both players have won eight of their last 10 hardcourt matches
