Rublev vs Nishioka: prediction for the Citi Open match

Andrey Rublev and Yoshihito Nishioka play each other in the semifinal of the Citi Open on Saturday. Who will become the finalist of this tournament? Here's our prediction.

Andrey Rublev

Andrey Rublev delivered very strong performances in spring. His best result was defeating Novak Djokovic in the final of the Serbia Open. But since April, Rublev hasn't played in finals. In Washington, the Russian cruised past his opponents - Maxime Cressy, Jeffrey Wolf, and Jack Draper were all defeated in straight sets.

Yoshihito Nishioka

Yoshihito Nishioka was in a crisis for a long time and dropped to the 96th line in the ATP ranking. But he will difinitely regain several positions after this tournament. The Japanese player has had a solid Citi Open campaign so far. Among his opponents were Jenson Brooksby, Daniel Evans, and Karen Khachanov, but Nishioka defeated all of them in three sets.
