Kei Nishikori and Fabio Fognini will face each other today at 10.30am (UK Time) in Rome, with both players still seeking some consistency throughout the clay season.

Kei Nishikori has struggled for consistency over the past two years, although he started 2021 on a positive note. His best performance of the season was in Dubai where he managed to reach the Quarter-finals before losing unexpectedly against Lloyd Harris. Nishikori also looked decent in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago, but he suffered a 2-1 defeat against Rafael Nadal in the round of 16. Then, he played in Madrid but lost in the second round against the eventual champion, Alexander Zverev.

Meanwhile, Fabio Fognini’s best performances of the season were reaching the round of 16 at the Australian Open on hard courts and the QF’s in Monte Carlo on clay. The Italian suffered an unexpected elimination in the first round of the Barcelona tournament where he was disqualified in the 2nd set against Zapata Miralles. He also looked poor in Madrid last week when he lost against Berrettini in straight sets.

It’s difficult to separate these two players at the moment due to their inconsistency, so we think that Over 21.5 games at a price of 3/4 seem a likely outcome.

The match is available to watch live on desktop, mobile or tablet devices in the UK and various other regions worldwide.
