Yoshihito Nishioka vs Jack Sock Prediction

Both players are having a very poor season are going face to face in the US Open first round. In a way, they will be satisfied with this draw as it could be much worse.

Hence both of them will fancy their chances to progress to the next round. Sock might take advantage of the crowd as he is playing on home soil. On the other hand Nishioka has to battle hard to register his first win in six months.

The Japanese is a slight favorite with the bookies to win with odds of 1.74. While Sock’s win has odds of 1.96. We think it’s too close to call. However, we will risk it and predict a Jack Sock win. Since he beat his opponent once this season and playing on home soil might be to his advantage.
