Rafael Nadal - Miomir Kecmanovic. Prediction for the ATP Acapulco (February 27, 2020)
Rafael Nadal will play a second-round match in Acapulco on February 27. This time the Spaniard will meet with Miomir Kecmanovic. Will Nadal be able to win? - read our prediction.
Nadal confidently began his performances at this tournament. In the first round, he played with Pablo Andujar. The Spanish veteran resisted Rafa only in the first set. As a result, the second racket of the world won with the score 6-3, 6-2.
In 2019, Nadal also participated in the Acapulco tournament. But then Nick Kyrgios appeared on his way. He failed to beat the Australian and after the second match he covered his racket.
Upcoming Predictions for Tennis
Recently, Kecmanovic has gained a good playing form. First of all, Serb performed well in New York. At that tournament, Miomir managed to reach the semifinals, losing to Kyle Edmund (1-6, 4-6). After that, the 20-year-old played in Delray Beach, where he lost in the second round to Ugo Humbert (4-6, 6-7).
Kecmanovic started the competition in Acapulco with a victory over Alex De Minaur. However, the Serbian had to play three sets (3-6, 6-4, 6-3).
Kecmanovic doesn't always play consistently. For example, at the Australian Open, he lost in three sets to Andreas Seppi, and in New York was defeated by Kyle Edmund. In draws, the Serb is inferior to Nadal, and a strong serve is unlikely to give him an advantage. We believe that the Spaniard will pass the opponent with confidence and will start doing it in the first game.
Our prediction is – victory of Rafael Nadal in the first set with odds (-2,5) games for 1.65 CF
