The 20-year-old has put together a couple of good weeks on grass this season. After the quarterfinals in Hertogenbosch and three victories in Eastbourne (including the qualifiers), his performance was outstanding at this year’s third Grand Slam.
Brandon Nakashima managed to achieve three triumphs at Wimbledon and reach the fourth round, which is the best result of his career at the Grand Slams. The American eliminated Kuhn, Shapovalov and Galan Riveros, and then Nick Kyrgios stopped him in the round of 16 after a dramatic match. Nakashima was brilliant, leading 1-0 in sets, but the more experienced Australian had stronger nerves and went through to the next stage.
This American tennis player has not played anywhere since the end of Wimbledon, so he is waiting for the start of the series of tournaments in North America rested and fresh. He is currently 49th on the ATP list, and if he continues to play well, he should improve in the ranking by the end of the year.
Jordan Thompson rarely appears in ATP tournaments and mostly participates in challengers, where he feels much more comfortable. When he appears on one of the bigger stages, this Australian is eliminated immediately at the start or in the second round. He has not managed to achieve two consecutive triumphs at ATP tournaments since February, and has won only once in his last three appearances.
He has played inconsistently throughout his career. His backhand is quite unreliable and vulnerable. Thompson’s record of wins and losses on the hard surface in the previous three years is negative (6-7, 13-14, 10-11), so we assume that he is not the happiest that this period of the season is coming.
These two players have played against each other three times so far, and Nakashima leads 2-1. It is interesting that the last duel Thompson won 2-0.
Although Thompson was better in their previous clash, we believe that the momentum is on Nakashima’s side, and that the talented American will continue to play well after Wimbledon. His performance in the English capital has been excellent and so we believe that this player will continue to improve and win in the coming weeks.
