Verdasco leads their previous matches 2-1. Their last meeting was in March last year. Nishikori won in 3 sets on a hard court. They played once on clay which was in 2012. Nishikori retired in the first set.
Nishikori hasn’t dropped a set so far. He has been very strong favourite in both matches.
Verdasco also hasn’t dropped a set. He destroyed Dodig in the last round. He seemed in very confident mood and that only helps his chances today.
I favour Nishikori to win but his price is crazy. Lay Nishikori around 1.10 . 4 or 5 sets expected.
