Brandon Nakashima v Jordan Thompson Live Streaming: World’s No. 56 Brandon Nakashima will face Australian players and the 95th Jordan Thompson in the first round of the 2022 ATP Atlanta Open on Monday, July 25th.
There have been three encounters between the two and Nakashima’s Reed 2-1 so far. One of those games took place in this very tournament last year when Nakajima won the semifinals.
Having reached the third round at French Open, Nakashima featured in three top-level grass court competitions other than the Challenger tournament in Surbiton.
At Surbiton, he had managed to make it to the quarterfinals and followed it up with another last-eight appearance at Rosmalen, where he had defeated fellow Americans Tommy Paul and Sam Querrey.
As a qualifier in Eastbourne, he embarked on what would be his best career performance in the Grand Slam after losing to Cameron Norrie in Eastbourne.
Held in Wimbledon earlier this year, it reached 16 rounds, including the victory of Denis Shapovalov. Can he return to hardcourt tennis with a bang that was a bit of a Boogeyman for him this season?
It was an unforgettable year for Thompson, and although he made it to the finals at the Challenger circuit, there were many expectations for his highest level of performance. With Thompson losing 14 of the 22 top-level games played this year and only 8 wins, it’s no wonder Australians are the second most popular in the game.
Defeating Nakashima in Dallas earlier this year seems like something of a bygone era. Following the loss of the second round at Wimbledon, followed by the loss of the first round at Newport on the turf, he hopes his return to hardcourt tennis will be much better. But first, he has a difficult opening encounter.
