Grigor Dimitrov vs. Brandon Nakashima +122: Aug 31

By Adam Ortega

Brunch and tennis, anyone? That's what the U.S. Opens will be providing for the next two weeks. Grigor Dimitrov enters his second-round match after steamrolling American Steve Johnson three sets to none. Brandon Nakashima also had a straightforward first-round win by not dropping a set. Is this a situation where the short underdog Nakashima can take advantage of playing on home soil?

Grigor Dimitrov has to be one of the most talented players yet to win a grand slam. Although he is an accomplished tennis player at thirty-one years of age, I feel Dimitrov's opportunity to win a grand slam tournament has passed him by. Dimitrov has a great serve that won't overpower you but is always placed with precision. The groundstrokes of Dimitrov are also a thing of beauty, especially his one-handed backhand. As beautiful as Dimitrov's game is, there always seems to be a speed bump that derails his progress. Being mentally strong is key in grand slam events where you play best of five sets. Dimitrov's millage on the engine that carries him around the court might be his demise in what is sure to be a grind-it-out match.

Brandon Nakashima is another name that tennis fans might not have heard. What the talented Nakashima brings to the tennis court is consistency. Playing in his home country (U.S.A.) should have him ready to battle it out, even if it takes five sets. The longer Nakashima extends this tennis match, the better his chances are of pulling off the slight upset. Remember that Nakashima is ten years younger than Dimitrov, which could be huge in determining who advances to the next round.

Although Dimitrov might be the more talented player, Nakashima won't beat himself. Thursday's weather in New York calls for sunny skies and high humidity (38%). Look for the underdog to come away with one of the best wins of his career—Nakashima to win three sets to two sets. 

Thanks for your continued support! Good luck with your tennis wagers!
