TennisSection previews the 2022 Paris Masters as Carlos Alcaraz takes on Yoshihito Nishioka in the Round of 32 on November 2nd, 2022.
Will Carlos Alcaraz get the win? Will Yoshihito Nishioka pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where the top seed begins his campaign with a tough first match. Who will triumph and move through to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Paris Masters?
Carlos Alcaraz hasn’t looked great since his triumph in New York, but ultimately he’ll be looking to make a statement and put a cap on what has been an incredible season which has brought him to the no. 1 ranking. While Yoshihito Nishioka is no easy first round, especially considering his current form, I think the conditions here and in general the matchup will play really well into the racquet of Alcaraz as he aims to book his spot in the Round of 16 here at the 2022 Paris Masters.
Yoshihito Nishioka has been playing some solid tennis lately, picking up a couple big wins and making some excellent runs. As he faces Carlos Alcaraz though, I doubt he’ll have all that much success against the Spaniard. If he wants to win this match, he’ll have to rely on Alcaraz being a little off his game, and focusing on defending as well as he can. Let’s see what he can do here as he looks to somehow extend his stay at the 2022 Paris Masters.
Carlos Alcaraz and Yoshihito Nishioka have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. It’s a fascinating matchup as offense meets defense, pace meets absorption and many other opposites, but in the end, Alcaraz’s level is just much higher, and I expect him to scrape a little rust off this match as he looks to advance here at the 2022 Paris Masters.
