Casper Ruud vs Yoshihito Nishioka Bet Preview

In the upcoming second round of the Shanghai Masters, Casper Ruud, the number eight seed, is set to face Yoshihito Nishioka this Thursday. Here’s our Casper Ruud vs Yoshihito Nishioka bet preview from our tennis experts.

The player from Norway has displayed a commendable performance this season, recording 32 victories from a total of 51 games and clinching the title at the Estoril Open. Additionally, he was the second-best at both the French Open and the Bastad’s Swedish Open.

The 24-year-old Ruud is coming to Shanghai after making it to the quarterfinals at the China Open in Beijing. On his journey to the quarters, he managed to overcome Jan Lennard Struff and Tomas Martin Etcheverry. However, his campaign was halted by Spain’s top player, Carlos Alcaraz, who bested Ruud in a straight-set match, scoring 6-4, 6-2.

Conversely, Yoshihito Nishioka boasts 19 victories from 38 games this season, and notably achieved second place at the Zhuhai Championships. His journey this year also includes reaching the semifinals at the Adelaide International 1.

This talented player from Japan is approaching the Shanghai Masters after being knocked out in the second round at Beijing. He commenced his stint there with a gripping victory against Daniel Altmaier, clinching a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(2) win. Nishioka is undoubtedly keen to build on this and present a strong challenge to Ruud in their forthcoming match.
