Nishioka is having an amazing tournament reaching the fourth round in Melbourne without losing a single set. The Japanese have an career opportunity to reach the quarterfinals but will have to defeat a player that has beaten him in 3 of 4 matches. Khachanov is the better one and more experienced. He is much taller and hits the ball harder. Where Nishioka is better is moving on the court. This will be a collision of two tennis styles and Khachanov will have much trouble despite being seen as a favorite. Khachanov is not consistent during the entire match and that is where Nishioka will seek his chance. Long story short, this will be a long match that may go in five-sets. However, placing a bet on over 35.5 games on 1.58 is a great deal.
