This will be their first meeting.
Nishioka has won 7 of his 9 US Open matches in the last 2 seasons. Six of those wins were in qualifying rounds. He reached the semi final in Atlanta at the start of August.
Anderson reached the quarter finals last year. He was defending champion last week in Winston Salem but lost in the 1st round. His form has been hit or miss this season.
I see some value on Nishioka at the start as I expect a tight opening set. Anderson has the bigger hard court game but won’t win in 3 sets.
Anderson starts around 1.34 and I’ll be hoping to lay around 1.25 .
