TennisSection previews the 2022 Atlanta Open as Brandon Nakashima takes on John Millman in the Round of 16 on Wednesday, July 27th, 2022.
Will Brandon Nakashima get the win? Will John Millman pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have a rising American facing a veteran of the ATP Tour. Who will triumph and move on to the quarterfinals at the 2022 Atlanta Open?
Brandon Nakashima had a great Wimbledon run, making it all the way to the 4th round, before being ousted in 5 sets by Nick Kyrgios. John Millman is no easy opponent, but heading back to the hard courts and probably in the best form of his life, I expect him to be on it in this match. Millman doesn’t play too differently from Nakashima, but he doesn’t have the aggression nor the power of the American, making it difficult to compete with him as the two fight for a spot in the quarterfinals at the 2022 Atlanta Open.
John Millman got a tough win over fellow Australian Alexei Popyrin in 3 sets, but now looks ahead to the challenge ahead in Brandon Nakashima. In order to take him down, he will have to play a very aggressive game, as Nakashima is not only aggressive himself, but very consistent, which will make it quite difficult for Millman to play his typical game against the American. Let’s see if he can fight to stay in the 2022 Atlanta Open.
Brandon Nakashima and John Millman have met once before, with Brandon Nakashima leading the head to head 1-0. Their one meeting came in Dallas, earlier this year. Nakashima won in a really tight straight set match, but he’s only improved so far, and as they head into some preferable conditions for Nakashima, I expect him to continue his success as he looks ahead to the quarterfinals of the 2022 Atlanta Open.
