Matchup: Grigor Dimitrov v Yoshihito Nishioka

Pick: 8* Nishioka +1.5 Sets or Nishioka to win (a) Set

Neither players favorite surface but Nishioka's gamestyle can pose Dimitrov major problems.

Nishioka's lefty heavy topspin forehand will curl into Dimitrov's backhand wing, the ball bouncing at an uncomfortable height.

Dimitrov struggles with high bouncing balls and his one-handed backhand prefers a much quicker, lower bouncing ball.

Conditions in Rome are very warm with the ball spitting up off the surface at speed, Nishioka is the more comfortable of the pairing in these conditions.

Dimitrov won the only previous meeting 6-3/6-4 but this was on hard court and Nishioka went 1-7 on break points, expect this clay court battle to be much tougher for Dimitrov. Nishioka +1.5 Sets
