Khachanov vs Nishioka Australian Open Betting Prediction

Khachanov leads Nishioka 3-1 in head-to-head record and the Russian will hope to ease past his familiar opponent. However, Nishioka is not out of the contest, given that he has played brilliantly so far and is yet to drop a set in his three matches of the tournament.

With nothing much to separate, minor details will determine the result of this tie. With more experience on the big stages and overall success in the past, Khachanov is slightly ahead in this contest. Though we should expect it to be tightly contested, 18th seed Khachanov has enough to win this tie against the 31st seeded Japanese.
