TennisSection previews the 2021 Los Cabos Open as Jordan Thompson (5) takes on Brandon Nakashima in the Quarter-Finals on Thursday, July 22nd, 2021.
Will Brandon Nakashima be able to cause another big upset here at the 2021 Los Cabos Open as he aims to book his spot in the Semi-Finals? Will Jordan Thompson continue to show us his amazing composure in tight matches as he has done all week? Both players have performed well this week, but only one will make their way to the Semi-Finals of the 2021 Los Cabos Open. Who will it be?
Brandon Nakashima put on a solid display in the Second Round, beating the 4th seed, Sam Querrey, in easy fashion 6-3/6-4. This was a big upset, especially as Sam Querrey has been in very strong form on grass this year. However, Querrey had some rust coming onto the hard courts, and Brandon used all of the momentum gained in his first win here to cause the upset. Brandon will now meet the 5th seed, Jordan Thompson, in the hopes of causing another upset here at the 2021 Los Cabos Open. However, he will need to be at his best as Thompson is in form.
Jordan Thompson came through a very tight Second Round match, beating Sebastian Ofner in 3 sets 3-6/6-4/7-5. Jordan Thompson did not know what to expect in the first set so he was a bit all over the place. However, once he got a feel for Ofner’s game, he was able to find his composure and get the next two sets under his belt. Jordan Thompson has been in great form all week and he will be very determined to make it to the Semi-Finals because he knows that he should be doing so at the 5th seed. Will Thompson be able to prevent the upset from the determined Brandon Nakashima?
Jordan Thompson and Brandon Nakashima have never met before, with this being their first meeting on the ATP Tour. I expect for this to be a tight match as both Jordan Thompson and Brandon Nakashima have been close in terms of form all week. Brandon will have a lot of belief in himself after beating Querrey. However, Thompson is a better mover around the court, so he will not be as easily beaten. I see both players winning a set here, but the experience of Jordan Thompson will give him the edge and allow him to make his way to the Semi-Finals of the 2021 Los Cabos Open.
